Walking with Superman: Day 311
This is not Wil MacIntyre's world. He belongs to a world that no one seems to remember--a world of fantasy, where heroes used their amazing abilities to make incredible music; a world spellbound by the magic power of a musical despot. With his mastery over electromagnetism, he led Triumph to become the world's most powerful power trio. He formed the Thunder Seven--Hawkman-Palmer Overdrive, Bryan Atoms, Flash, Theory of the Deadman, Alanis Moriscott, and the Barenaked Lady Blackhawks--who led the fight against Fiddler's forces in Canada. With the great white north safe from tyranny, Triumph toured America and fought the good fight with the allied forces of the resistance, until the world suddenly changed. Now, Wil MacIntyre sits alone in a bar in Elgin, IL, unable to say goodbye to the world he knew, incapable of movin' on in this strange new world where the musicians he knew have become vigilantes and criminals. When Superman passes through the suburban town, McIntyre recognizes him as the young virtuoso who led a supergroup into the heart of the Fiddler's power base. MacIntyre doesn't want much from the Man of Steel, the truth will do just fine, and he's ready to lay everything on the line in order to restore the world he knew!
