The Cadmus Project / Love's Labors... "Private Lives" last edited by Darkside_of_the_Sun on 05/12/18 06:06PM View full history

"THE CADMUS PROJECT" Sleez takes over Cadmus and forces the orginal Newsboy Legion to make young clones of themselves. These clones escape from Cadmus and travel to Metropolis where they come to the attention of Superman. Also, Dan Turpin, while recovering from an attack by Barrage, is visited by Captain Sawyer in the hospital. Dan finds a new perspective on his boss in "LOVE'S LABOR."

"The Cadmus Project" - A top secret research facility loses a group of 'Alpha Subjects', a group that looks suspiciously like the Newsboy Legion mysteriously appears in Metropolis, and a superhero that looks a lot like the World War II hero The Guardian challenges Superman. What do all these things have in common? The Man of Steel intends to find out!

"Love's Labors... "Private Lives" - When Barrage puts Dan Turpin in the hospital, he begins to reevaluate things, including his relationship with Captain Sawyer.

The trouble is that even "King...
