Superman never made any money,
Savin' the world from Solomon Grundy.
And sometimes I despair
The world will never see another man like him.

Author's Notes: The metropolitan district surrounding Vancouver, B.C., includes a total of twelve official cities, with Vancouver being the most populous. To avoid confusion that wouldn't add to the narrative, I've avoided using particular place names to allow me the most freedom for this story. You may decide this yarn is a fantasy, or you may think it's entirely possible. I'll leave the verdict up to you.
