Action Comics Vol 2-27 Cover-2

Action Comics (Volume 2) Issue #27 Cover-2

When he was a child, Clark was beginning to develop his hearing and vision powers. He eavesdropped on a conversation between Jonathan and Martha Kent, who both said that Clark wasn't human. Later, Jonathan and Martha gave Clark a red cape, saying that he came wrapped in it. Seeing the cape as a give from both his birth parents and adoptive parents, Clark accepts it. In the present, Clark has become friends with the beast child, calling the boy "Baka", as it is the only word the child can pronounce. Clark takes Baka to see the Fortress. Baka sees things from Clark's childhood, including a picture of Lana. Then, Clark gets a phone call from Lana, who sends him pictures of the underground structure she found while drilling. She also tells him that people in suits have come to claim the site. As soon as she hangs up, Lana continues exploring the underground tunnels, being followed by the Ghost Soldier. She enters a large chamber illuminated by an orb of light. In that moment, she is surrounded by monsters, but Superman and Baka arrive to fight them. While Superman fights the monsters, Baka becomes affectionate towards Lana and protects her. Superman reveals Baka is the creature Lana and her crew saw earlier. Then, a large humanoid warrior, the leader of the monsters, arrives to confront Superman. Before Superman and the warrior come to blows, however, Baka transforms into his beast form, causing a cave in. While Superman saves Lana, the warrior calms Baka down, speaking to him in a strange language. Superman believes the warrior is creating an army of monsters to attack the surface, but the warrior says he and his creatures are protecting the surface. He takes Superman and Lana to see the underground land of Imperial Subterranea. Meanwhile, in another part of Imperial Subterranea, a woman calling herself queen receives news that Ukur's beasts have been vanquished and the seal has been broken. The woman prepares to go into the surface world.
