Walking with Superman: Day 166
On New Year's Eve, thousands of red-winged blackbirds fell out of the sky, peppering central Arkansas with grisly avian corpses. But when Superman arrives in the small town of Beebe to investigate, dead birds are suddenly the least of his concerns! The Man of Steel finds himself set-upon by a clan of bald Native Americans--wielding kryptonite-tipped spears! When the fight is over, Superman is injured and weakened, his foes have escaped, and only a single spear attests to their existence. He takes the artifact to S.T.A.R. Labs in nearby Little Rock, but their findings raise only more questions--specifically, how did a piece of Kryptonite end up on Earth three hundred years ago, before Krypton exploded? Meanwhile, among the blackbirds in Beebe, a single raven stirs...and changes!
