Superman 689 – Mon-El travels the world


Mon-El spans the globe in Superman 689 (Aug. 09), as Robinson, Guedes and Magalhaes have him interact with a large variety of heroes and villains.


In Metropolis Mon-El takes down Live Wire and the Gentleman Ghost, while Morgan Edge takes to the airwaves to criticize him and suggest that Mon-El is really a Kryptonian.  Later in the issue, the Guardian goes on Edge’s show and avers that Mon-El is a Daxamite, and no threat to the people of Metropolis.  Morgan Edge promptly changes his tune, so quickly that one cannot help but be suspicious.


Tellus leaves Earth, but before he does, he endows the Guardian with some telekinetic shielding, to protect him the next time he faces Codename Assassin.


Much of the issue shows Mon-El defeating a variety of enemies in countries around the world, while at the same time taking the sights and experiences in those regions.  Congorilla gets a cameo, as does the rarely appearing Bwana Beast.


We see that the Prankster has also been recruited by General Lane, and has used functionaries to lure Black Lightning away from Metropolis.


The story ends with John Henry Irons taking Atlas on another tour of the world beneath the city.  Atlas drops his disguise, and turns on Steel.

The story continues in the next issue.
