If we're ever gonna

become full-fledged superheroes...

...we can start by sticking

to our super-names.

Well, karate kid...

...if lightning lad and the rest of the legion

truly believed we were ready...

...we would be fighting by their side

instead of exploring this museum.

But I've studied every martial art ever invented.

I'm ready to go.

What more do they want?

There is much more to being a hero

than simply fighting.

Tracking lost cats and blessing them with light

doesn't really count as heroics, Dawnstar.

I think it does.

Besides, if the legion of super-heroes

feel we are not ready...

...then we must patiently trust their wisdom.

Heh. Patience? Please.

Check this guy out.

Oh, whoa. Wait. This is Lex Luthor.

It says here his body was found

in the year 2856...

...during the big thaw

of the second warming.

Heh. Look at him.

The leader of the legion of doom.

The sign says not to get too close

to the exhibits.

The greatest super villain

of all time? More like Lex loser.

There's a weak point

in this chunk of ice right here.

I bet with one focused key burst, I can bust

him out and wax the floor with his bald head.

Val, please be careful.

He doesn't look so tough.

Val. Karate kid, stop.



See? I stopped a fraction of an inch

before contact.

-I trained for years to learn that trick.

-You might have broken the ice.

I didn't, did I?

Come. Let us continue to the next hall.

This side of the museum

makes me uncomfortable.

What? Where am I?

What is going on?


Wait. The year 2856.

I've been frozen for nearly a thousand years.


It was Fate

that ?Rst bought Superman to our planet.

The innocent baby Kal-El was orphaned...

...when his home planet of Krypton

ceased to exist.

Fortunately, his space crib
