The "Grounded" storyline continues right here as Superman visits Mt. Prospect - a suburb just southeast of Chicago. In this issue, Superman discovers that there is a darkness even more immense than outer space... One buried deep inside the human heart. The first of the "Grounded" letter write-in destinations, this town was suggested by Annette Kowalczyk of Mt. Prospect, Illinois. Annette has lived in Mt. Prospect for 43 years, raising her three children (and now seven grandchildren) in the area. Thanks for being a Superman fan all these years!

Doomsday will first make his presence known this January in STEEL #1 - but I can promise you, he won't be the only hero facing Doomsday's wrath for long. The story will continue with: Part 2: OUTSIDERS #37
