Invaders from Earth

Part 2 of The Missing 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.
