Barr, Novick and Calnan continue the saga of the half-Superman in Action 538 (Dec.82).
With Superman too afraid to face him, and the police helpless against his armor, Jackhammer makes the most of being the most dangerous man in Metropolis.
When Superman does finally confront him again, he is once again overpowered by Jackhammer. But the crowd is none too pleased, and they step in, hurling anything they can find at the villain. When he turns to attack the crowd, Superman takes his opening, and knocks out Jackhammer. Still, this should have been a nothing fight for the hero.
Rozakis, Saviuk and Colletta clarify things in this chapter of the Aquaman story. The woman has a lot of trouble getting control of her hard water powers, but Aquaman still believes this is really Mera.
And though it does turn out that he is correct, it’s not such a good thing. It’s Mera’s body all right, but she is under the control of someone else. Some who Aquaman has just instructed in how to use Mera’s powers.
The story continues in the next issue.
