Walking with Superman: Day 247
In 1962, the Century 21 Exposition in Seattle, WA, left an indelible mark on the city, and today the Seattle Center--with the Space Needle, the International Fountain, and the monorail terminus--stands as a testimony to that future-minded event. Needless to say, the Man of Tomorrow feels right at home. And when a familar-looking spherical craft materializes above the Experience Music Project and Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame, Superman is thrilled to meet it. But while the travelers are indeed from a thousand years in the future, they have come from a parallel universe--Universal Boy! Titan Girl! Thunder Teen! The Battalion of Ultra-Brigands represents the future of villainy in the evil-dominated universe of Earth-3, and they've come to New Earth to initiate their newest recruit, the titanic teenage tyrant, Ultraboy! His test: kill Superman!
