Letters Column: Metropolis Mailbag

Superman, lost in space, stumbles across a large spacecraft being pursued by a smaller, but better-armed vessel. Repairing the damaged craft, Superman boards it to be met by a reptilian man, who explains that his aging, disease-ridden grandfather is on board and that his priceless art collection, culled from thousands of planets over a lifetime of acquisition, is the target of the pirates on their tail. When he launches an attack on the "pirates," Superman is trapped in their teleportation tube and overhears the two passengers of the smaller craft talking about the hideous crimes of the man they pursue. Before Superman can escape the teleportation tube, the inhabitants, soon revealed to be Rik Sunn (former star of Jurgens's 1980s maxi-series "Sun Devils") and the daughter of his second-in-command Scyla, have boarded the other craft and killed the young man Superman spoke to. Freeing himself, he arrives in time to save the girl, but n aged and rambling Sunn sets off a grenade, killing himself as well as the dying tyrant Karvus Khun, the object of his pursuit.

Back in Metropolis, Lois Lane investigates the suspicious death of a LexCorp employee (Sasha Green, who became Myriad in the "Bloodlines" story), and stumbles on a clue that will eventually lead to a revelation about Lex Luthor II.

The only in-continuity, DC Universe appearance of any of the Sun-Devils. The team, however, has made cameos in DC's recent relaunch of "The Brave and the Bold," (appearing only as an image in the timeline) and their name was scrawled on Rip Hunter's chalkboard in "52."
