Being a superhero was not what it once was. Superman, while invulnerable, was not immune to aging. He had put on a few pounds and there was definitely the appearance of male pattern balding. For years he had fought for truth, justice and the American way, but now America had lost its way. The country had turned its back on all that was alien. Superman, like all those who were seeking a better life in a new world, was an alien. He knew he could break through any wall they could put up to keep him out except one, a wall built of ignorance and hate.
