Walking with Superman: Day 227
Superman visits the Knife River Indian Villages National Historic Site near Stanton, ND, where his old friend Adam Strange is working with a University of North Dakota class on an archaeological dig. When the dig turns up a strange silver egg, apparently scored by atmospheric re-entry, all eyes turn to the investigator with extraterrestrial expertise. Strange takes hold of the metallic egg, and suddenly feels the familiar sensation of zeta-beam irradiation--but in reverse! The lingering radiation in Strange's cells awakens a giant alien robot from the egg, and the Man of Steel springs into action. But when the hyper-adaptable mechanoid traps the Kryptonian within its own body, it's up to Adam Strange--with nary a jetpack or ray-gun in sight--to save the day!
