Walking with Superman: Day 147
Central City, Missouri has a bit of a love affair with men in red suits who can travel the world very quickly, so it's no surprise that they go all out for Christmas. So when Superman visits, he expects to find decorated streets, festive shops, and a jolly speedster or two. But though it's snowing in Central City, there isn't much Christmas cheer to be found. In fact, there's not much city to be found, just a wide empty field where Central City used to be, and at the center of it, a souvenir snow globe. The thousands of tiny screams that Superman hears as he reaches for the sphere confirm his fears--Central City has been shrunk! Thankfully, Superman has some relevant experience in dealing with shrunken cities under glass, but will that be enough to trounce the treacherous trickster who turned the town into a tchotchke, Abra Kadabra?!
