Showcase: Tharka the Superwoman
Times Past, 1969
Invaders from Earth
by Dan Swanson
Original film footage from Tharka the Superwoman’s famous trip to Earth from her home planet of Zor years earlier was stolen — but why? Tharka learns the reason two years later, when her arch-nemesis Doctor Computeer declares herself Empress of Zor and forces Tharka to battle two super-powered foes from Earth — Captain Challenge and Muscleman! Can Tharka outwit her enemy and save her world before it’s too late?
Author’s note: All the dialog in this chapter has been translated from the original Zorish into the closest English equivalents. See Superman #81 (March-April, 1953) for the first and only appearance of Tharka the Superwoman and the planet Zor.
