General Samuel T. Merritt:
According to the Bible, Man was created on the Earth. Nothing is ever mentioned of his going to other planets. Not one blessed word.



Captain Barney Merritt:
Well, at the time the Bible was written, it wouldn't have made much sense, would it?



General Samuel T. Merritt:
Does it now? The Biblical limitations of Man's wanderings are set down as being the four corners of the Earth. Not Mars, or Jupiter, or infinity. The question is, Barney, what are we -- explorers or invaders?



Captain Barney Merritt:
Invaders? Of what, sir?



General Samuel T. Merritt:
The sacred domain of God. His heavens. To Man, God gave the Earth, nothing else. This taking of... of other planets... it's almost like an act of blasphemy.



Captain Barney Merritt:
But why? They belong to no one else.



General Samuel T. Merritt:
We don't know that.



Captain Barney Merritt:
But look, sir, it couldn't be just an accident that at the very time when Man's resources on Earth are reaching an end, Man develops the ability to leave his own world and seek replenishment on other planets. The timing is what fascinates me: it's too perfect to be accidental.



General Samuel T. Merritt:
Those other planets might already be tenanted.



Captain Barney Merritt:
Oh, I don't think so... the universe was put here for Man to conquer.

Sergeant Imoto:
Some years ago, my country chose to fight a terrible war. It was bad, I do not defend it, but there were reasons. Somehow those reasons are never spoken of. To the Western world at that time, Japan was a fairybook nation: little people living in a strange land of rice-paper houses... people who had almost no furniture, who sat on the floor and ate with chopsticks. The quaint houses of rice paper, sir: they were made of paper because there was no other material available. And the winters in Japan are as cold as they are in Boston. And the chopsticks: there was no metal for forks and knives and spoons, but slivers of wood could suffice. So it was with the little people of Japan, little as I am now, because for countless generations we have not been able to produce the food to make us bigger. Japan's yesterday will be the world's tomorrow: too many people and too little land. That is why I say, sir, there is urgent reason for us to reach Mars: to provide the resources the human race will need if they are to survive. That is also why I am most grateful to be found acceptable, sir. I volunteer.



General Samuel T. Merritt:
Thank you, Sergeant Imoto. You're not a little man.

Radio Announcer:
Because of the obvious threat to untold numbers of citizens due to the crisis that is even now developing, this radio station will remain on the air day and night. This station and hundreds of other radio and TV stations throughout this part of the country are pooling their resources through an emergency network hook-up to keep you informed of all developments. At this hour, we repeat, these are the facts as we know them. There is an epidemic of mass murder being committed by a virtual army of unidentified assassins. The murders are taking place in villages and cities, in rural homes and suburbs with no apparent pattern nor reason for the slayings. It seems to be a sudden general explosion of mass homicide. We have some descriptions of the assassins. Eyewitnesses say they are ordinary-looking people. Some say they appear to be in a kind of trance. Others describe them as being misshapen monsters. At this point, there's no really authentic way for us to say who or what to look for and guard yourself against. Reaction of law enforcement officials is one of complete bewilderment at this hour. Police and sheriff's deputies and emergency ambulances are literally deluded with calls for help. The scene can be best described as mayhem. The mayors of Pittsburg, Philadelphia, and Miami, along with the governments of several eastern and midwestern states indicated that the National Guard may be mobilized at any moment, but that has not happened as yet. The main advice news reporters have been able to get from official sources is to tell private citizens to stay inside their homes behind locked doors. Do not venture outside for any reason until the nature of this crisis has been determined, and until we can advise what course of action to take. Keep listening to radio and TV for special instructions as this crisis develops further. Thousands of office and factory workers are being urged to stay at their places of employment, not to make any attempt to get to their homes. However, in spite of this urging and warning, streets and highways are packed with frantic people trying to reach their families or, apparently, to flee just anywhere. We repeat, the safest course of action at this time is simply to stay where you are. Ladies and gentlemen, we've just received word that the President has called a meeting of his Cabinet to deal with the sudden epidemic of murder that has seized the eastern third of this nation. The meeting is scheduled to convene within the hour. Members of the Presidential Cabinet will be joined by officials of the FBI and military advisors. White House spokesmen are saying there will be an official announcement immediately following that meeting. This is the latest dispatch just received in our news room. The latest word also - this is from nation press services in Washington, D.C. - tells us that the emergency Presidential conference which we just mentioned will include high-ranking scientists from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. So far, the best advice they are able to give the public is this quote from Chief T. K. Dunbar from Camden, North Carolina, who is quoted as saying, "Tell the people for God's sake to get off the streets! Tell them to go home and lock their windows and doors up tight! We don't know what kind of murder-happy characters we have here!" Chief Dunbar's words were worn out in grisly fashion just hours ago near the small, normally peaceful town of Willard, Pennsylvania, where the driver of a tanker truck was mobbed by a cluster of apparently would-be assassins oblivious to all concerns for their own safety and blindly intent on attacking the driver. The tanker trunk went out of control and plowed into the gas pumps at a well-known eatery and truck stop known as Beakman's. The truck and gas pumps caught on fire and exploded, apparently maiming and killing gas station and restaurant employees, together with a dozen or more patrons, motorists, and pedestrians. Several bodies were found mangled and mutilated. Many others appear to have been carried off by the attackers. Eyewitness accounts described the assassins as ordinary-looking people, misshapen monsters, people who look like they're in a trance, and creatures that look like people but behave like animals. Some tell of seeing victims that looked as if they had been torn apart. This whole ghastly story began developing two days ago, and from that point on, these terrible events kept on snowballing in a reign of terror that has not abated. Military personel and law enforcement agencies have been working hard in an attempt to gain some kind of control of this situation, but most of their efforts have been marginally futile up to this particular time.

Ed Straker:
Imagine a dying planet in some distant corner of the universe. Its natural resources exhausted. Its inhabitants sterile. Doomed to extinction. A situation we may one day find ourselves in, gentlemen. So they discover earth. Abundant, fertile. Able to satisfy their needs. They look upon us not with animosity, but callousness. As we look upon our animals that we depend on for food. Yes, it appears they are driven by circumstance across a billion miles of space, driven on by the greatest force in the universe - survival.

Jor-El:
[in the Fortress of Solitude] You... enjoyed it.



Superman:
I don't know what to say, Father. I'm afraid I just got carried away.



Jor-El:
I anticipated this, my son. I...



Superman:
[surprised] You couldn't have! You couldn't have imagined...



Jor-El:
...How good it felt.


[Clark nods]



Jor-El:
You are revealed to the world. Very well, so be it. But you must still retain your secret identity.



Superman:
But why?



Jor-El:
The reasons are two. First, you cannot serve humanity twenty-eight hours a day.



Superman:
Twenty-four.



Jor-El:
Or twenty-four, as it is in Earth time. Your help would be called for endlessly, even for those problems which human beings could solve themselves. It is their habit to abuse their resources in such a way.



Superman:
And, second?



Jor-El:
Second, your enemies will discover that the only way to hurt you, will be by hurting the people you care for.



Superman:
Thank you, Father.



Jor-El:
Lastly... Do not punish yourself for your feelings of vanity. Simply learn to control them. It is an affliction common to all, even on Krypton. Our destruction could have been avoided had it not been for the vanity of some who considered us indestructible. Were it not for vanity, why... at this very moment...

Narrator:
These motorroads were built after the Chinese invasion. The main reason for these roads is to enable the invaders to cart Tibet's resources away. The Chinese have felled over 60 % of Tibet's already scant trees. The forests of eastern and southern Tibet were twice as large as the British Isles. Up to one thousand truckloads a day depart from these areas to China, leaving behind irreparable ecological damage. The effect on the eight main rivers of Asia, which have their sources here, are already catastrophic.

Me? I'm just a miner.



Cryos:
A thief you mean.



Graveheart:
No, a miner. Just someone out to help his world.



Cryos:
Then you should have stayed off ours.



Graveheart:
You know we can't do that. We need your water to survive.



Cryos:
So you steal it?



Graveheart:
Yes, we do. Just as you steal from us and we both steal from planets Fire and Bone. We need each other's natural resources to survive, and you know it.



Cryos:
It is our way of life.



Graveheart:
Then allow us to leave your planet, and we'll leave your precious ice... our precious water.



Rock captain:
No! We won't leave without the ice! We can't.

Narrator:
Those were the years when the icecaps melted due to the greenhouse gases and the oceans had risen and drowned so many cities along all the shorelines of the world. Amsterdam, Venice, New York forever lost. Millions of people were displaced. Climate became chaotic. Hundreds of millions of people starved in poorer countries. Elsewhere a high degree of prosperity survived when most governments in the developed world introduced legal sanctions to license pregnancies. Which was why robots, who were never hungry and did not consume resources beyond those of their first manufacture were so essential an economic link in the chain mail society.

Human behavior is economic behavior. The particulars may vary, but competition for limited resources remains a constant. Need as well as greed have followed us to the stars, and the rewards of wealth still await those wise enough to recognize this deep thrumming of our common pulse.

You are instructed to proceed to the nearest outpost for processing...

Monster attack on your major population centers is imminent. Not even your strongest monster can break free of our control and defeat the others. That is all.
