Synopsis for "Massacre at Truman High!"Edit

Continued from last issue... In order to get Samuel Burley to assist them in their plans, Yellowclaw's agent Karl von Horstbaden sends Sandman to capture Burley's brother Mike (Richard Rider's classmate and high school antagonist.) as they have succeeded in capturing T'Kora and have Nova neutralized in a specialized holding cell.

Meanwhile, Richard's father Charles tries to get a loan to get through the family money problems while he is unemployed but is refused. He is given a card from a security guard at the bank for a group called the Inner Circle which he is told can help him out with his financial problems. Charles takes the card and decides to follow the instructions he's given in spite of the suspicious of the Inner Circles operations.

Meanwhile, Sandman attack's Harry S. Trueman High School to capture Mike, Nova revives in his cell and manages to break free. Rushing to the school, he battles the Sandman there, and after a lengthy battle the Sandman is defeated when Nova runs him through a cement mixing truck. Afterwords, when Mike goes home for the day he gets a call from von Horstbaden, demanding him to do as they say if he wishes to see his brother alive.
