Walking with Superman: Day 258
What started as a panicked trip to a drugstore in Stollings, West Virginia, has become a tense hostage standoff between local police and 26-year-old Clay Murphy. There's just one catch: Murphy doesn't have a gun or a knife or a bomb--no weapons whatsoever! What he has is what brought him to the pharmacy in the first place: a strange, painful growth on his arm--a growth that's becoming more aggressive by the minute! The more desperate and agitated Murphy gets, the more his alien ailment lashes out at the hapless hostages! Can Superman defuse this tense situation and save Clay Murphy before this terrorizing extraterrestrial tumor consumes his body--or worse, before it becomes contagious?
