Walking with Superman: Day 210
Tucked away in the mountains east of Salt Lake City, Utah, is a fortified compound, where a superhuman cult leader called the Patriarch rules over his many wives and children with an iron fist. The Patriarch feeds on the life energy of his family, and in turn they develop amazing abilities, used to defend the compound from outsiders and interlopers. Usually the isolated group keeps to themselves, but occasionally things turn violent, or some members of the family will make a raid on a nearby town for supplies or new recruits. That forcible recruitment drive seems to have started up again, with several young women going missing from the east side of Salt Lake City in recent days. Superman teams with SLC's native superhero couple, Danite and Seagull, to track down the missing girls and return them to their homes. But the Patriarch doesn't take too kindly to outsiders, and he's not going to give up his newest conquests without a very nasty fight!
