Walking with Superman: Day 294
Clark Kent visits the International Cryptozoological Museum in Portland, ME, which has recently expanded to include a huge new collection of cryptids. Taxidermied unicorns, gryphons, cockatrices, and chupacabrae have drawn hundreds of new visitors, but the real stars of the collection are the live manticore and pegasus. Clark's enhanced senses reveal the shocking truth that these creatures are no mere hoax--though they also lack the telltale signs of magical origins that such creatures ought to possess. Yet they are no natural occurrence either, clearly made from the genetic material of wildly different and incompatible species, in a way that should not produce living organisms. There's something more to these creatures' origins, and it's going to take Superman to get to the bottom of it!
