Walking with Superman: Day 68
St. Louis's Gateway Arch is one of the most impressive architectural feats in the United States, standing taller than any other monument in the country. The Arch has been closed for a short time, due to repairs and refurbishments designed, the workers said, to make it more resistant to terrorist attack. But when the Arch is reopened, just in time for Superman's arrival, it seems that there was something more added than just security! The monument has apparently become the Gateway to the West Side of the Galaxy, as alien ships pour out of the glowing portal enclosed by the silver hyperbola! Even if the Man of Steel can stop the invasion, can the portal be closed without forever changing the St. Louis skyline?
