Walking with Superman: Day 299
Superman has always been an inspirational figure, and while the humble Kryptonian has come to terms with being the subject of admiration, he's never been comfortable with worship. Superman cults have existed in one form or another since the Man of Steel's public debut, and they continue in their fervor despite his best efforts to dissuade them. That's why he's in Valley Falls, CO today: Superman Cultists of every stripe have assembled for a Miracle Monday celebration, and the Man of Tomorrow hopes he might be able to talk some sense into them. And when 29th-Century historian Kristin Wells turns up at the same conference, Superman hopes he'll have some helping hands--but is the sometimes-Superwoman there to assist the Man of Steel, or to idolize him?
