Joe Kelly is joined by Tom Raney and Walden Wong as he launches the Harvest story arc in Action 801 (May 2003).
What begins as an average days tales a wild turn as people across the US suddenly begin manifesting super-powers. Zod seems to be aware of what is happening, although the story does not make the level of his involvement clear.
The reactions of those transformed vary greatly, but few actively pursue crime. Some rise to heroic action, but most are simply terrified.
Cameron Chase, of the DEO, reports to Luthor on this situation, with thousands of new meta-humans popping up in the US, out of control.
The story continues in the next issue.
