Starman: 1945: Nuclear Furnace

Starman of Earth-2: The Five Earths Project


Times Past, 1945

Nuclear Furnace

by Dan Swanson

In this unconventional look at the career of Ted Knight, alias Starman, Ted struggles with misgivings about his involvement in the Manhattan Project and the development of the atomic bomb. Even if the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were justified in the long run, will the ghosts of the irradiated dead haunt Starman forever? And will Ted Knight’s mental state be able to withstand the guilt he feels when confronted with literal atomic zombies partly created from his own research? Guest starring Johnny Quick, Captain Triumph, Wonder Woman, Amazing-Man, Mister Terrific, and Doctor Mid-Nite!
