Not long before baby Kal-El came to Earth, UFOs were spotted in the
skies over Smallville, and at least one woman was abducted, at which
time she lost her young son to the aliens. Now, over thirty years later,
UFO researcher Alicia Berenson thinks she's uncovered a link between the
Kansas Sighting and Superman's arrival, and Clark Kent fears she may be
Did Jor-El conduct experiments on humans - just in order to save his only son?
Superman's origins and his arrival on Earth have been explored so
obsessively in the past that anyone, even the most diehard Superman fan,
could be excused for sighing, "Oh, not this again" upon first hearing
the premise of KANSAS SIGHTING.
But the biggest surprise here is what a fresh take DeMatteis has on the
material. Certainly, the idea of a somewhat less-than-benevolent Jor-El
bears a close thematic resemblance to the "evil" Jor-El storyline slowly
unfolding in the SMALLVILLE TV series, but the resemblance is a superficial
one, at best. If this two-parter should remind us of anything, it should take
us back to the glory days of THE X-FILES and make us wonder just what Fox Mulder
would have done with the pieces of the puzzle laid out here.
