Walking with Superman: Day 219
While John Henry Irons examines the fragments of a hi-tech bomb that nearly slaughtered celebrants in Portland, Clark Kent covers a Representative's town hall meeting in Tucson, AZ. The forum takes a decidedly negative turn, however, when someone opens fire on the crowd! Quick action by the disguised Superman prevents any serious injuries, but stopping this would-be assassin is only the beginning! After arrests have been made, Superman gets a closer look at the assailant's handgun, finding not a typical clip, but a small teleportation device, designed to transport bullets directly into the chamber! Further investigation at the attacker's home reveals reams of white supremacist propaganda and a virtual arsenal of similar hi-tech weapons--including guns that look an awful lot like John Henry's old Toastmaster designs. Clark can't help but think that these attacks are related, and he's determined to get to the bottom of it.
