The Man of Bronze Returns

Chapter One: The message from beyond

April 14, 1954
New York City, New York
Empire State Building, 86th floor

"I'll be Superalgamated!" the tall gaunt figure leaned over an inlaid ornate table covered with mildewed manuscripts, crumbling codexes and ruined foolscap documents; each dating from different eras of human history. Any of these tomes would have required an encyclopedic amount of cryptic knowledge to peruse- written as they were in a variety of scripts and tongues; Egyptian hieroglyphs, medieval Latin, Chinese cuniform were three of the more recognizable writings. Yet the very tall, skinny man who was bent over reading them all, was doing so as if they were the sunday funny pages. His curious way of reading each was to loom over a page with a monacle that also seemed to double as a magnifying glass, and scan each document with speed reading skills that left a interested onlooker breathless and a little dizzy. A growing pile of books and scrolls scattered around the table indicated that this skinny academic giant had been reading thus for hours. The curious expletive that he unconciously emoted, as he finished a Mayan book of the Dead, brought a stirring of interest from two other men in the room.

"What is it, Johnny? Did you find something to help Doc?" The man who spoke was of a stature equal to the scholar he addressed. He was well over 6 feet tall, with a dour expression. He was stretched out a plush sofa that barely contained his mighty frame. He appeared to be reading manuals on radio-telescopes and cross referencing them with several college texts on atomic physics. His fists were giant size; and his massive hands cradled each tome like they were mere children's picture books. The reading was dryer than he had liked and he welcomed the chance for a distraction. The giant swung off the sofa, hurled the textbooks to one side- and slapping one huge fist into another- went to peer over the shoulder of the first man at the ornate table.

The third man did not welcome any distraction. He was the shortest of the three, being only 5 feet and he seemed the physical weakling of them all- his skin was an unhealthy pallor and his ears stuck out from his sandy head like wings. But it was apparent his mental capacites were equal to his comrades as he knelt in front of a massive television monitor rested on an oaken desk. The monitor was open to the back and the scientific runt was deftly wielding a sodering tool and a some unusual electronic tuning device. Wires and cables, vacuum tubes, screws, wirecutters, and various other electronic equipment littered the floor around him. He had been very intent on his work and the tall second man's apparent shirking of his research made him frown.

"Doggone it, Renny!" He said, "You know Doc asked us to work on these items for him! He said we didn't have time to waste."

"Keep your shirt on, Long Tom!" swore Renny. "We been at this for three days- and this is the first thing that geek Johnny has found to shout about!"

William Harper Littlejohn, the scholar in question, backed off his research for a stretch and turned to the others. "It would appear gentleman, that mystic past prognostications were scrupulous in detail and their veracity is beyond question!", he said replacing his monacle and peering at the other two as if testing their vocabulary. Renny's brow clouded for a minute and an audible groan of disgust came from the electrician on the other side of the room.

"In English, this time egghead!"

" I was merely stating that certain sections of the Mayan Popul Vul when compared with lost pharonic texts and crossreferecnced with forgotten research of Roger Bacon, yields astonishing results..." Johnny was warming up to the subject and began pacing back in forth in front of Renny. His movement was arrested by a massive fist that grasped his skinny arm, like a terrier shaking a rat. "Break it down for us, professor." Renny said threateningly.

"As astounding as it seems - these various cultures predicted the future to an incredible degree! Not like the lost Biblical patriarchs who heard voices or medieval sorcerors who read votives of flame to predict the future. These texts prove an advanced scientific knowledge existed for centuries to predict future events! In short gentleman- the future is a book waiting to be read, if only we could discover how!" Johnny paused and twirled his monacle in deep thought.

"So you're saying that mumbo jumbo like Nostradamus and reading gypsy fortune telling cards is right?" scoffed Renny.

"Well they confined their predictions to astronomic phenomenon,"admitted Johnny. "They predicted the creations of novas and quasars, in a fashion wholy unexplainable- centuries before these events happened!"

Long Tom continued tinkering on his bizarre television set, but uttered disdainfully, "I don't believe in no hocus pocus..."

A friend of mine told me about a little incident which happened last Wednesday or Tuesday. She was at home, taking a shower, when she suddenly noticed that her hand was very bloody. The she noticed that the blood was coming from her chest (collarbone area). I think there were no visible cuts/incisions/anything as she did not mention any. The bleeding started in the evening and it stopped after a while. (No precise time given)

She has been bulimic for three years, and she has chronic back pains at times. This January her back started aching so bad that breathing was a bit painful.

However, what could this bleeding thing be? And what might have caused this? Has anyone even heard of this before?

I am having this awful throbbing deep pain at the cruix of my neck , almost under my collar bone on the left side only of my lower neck. It lasts for about 10 mins, then slowly disapates.

Should I be concerned?

I'm overweight ( by 70 pounds ), but other than that no health problems I know of... The symptom seems to come and go as it pleases, but has been happening more frequently this year ( I am now in my early 30's)

Subject:a health question...
Posted by:giraffemoo.
Time:3:21 pm.
Mood: worried.
i'm brand spankin new to this community...i searched "health" for intrests and found this. looks good!!!
ok so i'm a 20-year old fairly healthy female...i try to eat helthy but i have a weird eating disorder that most people just take to mean that i'm a picky eater. basicly, theres only a few foods that i like, and vegtables or most meats aren't in that category. i know i don't eat as healthy as i should but i take vitamin supplements to help. i know its no substitute for eating right, but its all i can do for right now.
enough backround info...now for my big question. i'm getting over a cold right now, so i'm all miserable and stuffy and the like. but latley, i've been hungry all the time. on monday night i got in one of those nasty fights with my live-in boyfriend that lasted all night and into 10am the next morning. i HATE when i'm up all night long because then i sleep the whole day away and my shcedule is all off wack. i'm unemployed for right now (should be changing pending a second interview on friday) so its not like i need to be waking up early, but i've been brought up to feel lazy if i wake up past noon...so i've been trying to get my schedule back to a normal sleeping schedule. so on tuesday i only allowed myself to sleep about 3 hours during the day so i'd be tired at an appropriate time at night, and sure enough, i went to bed at around 11:30 which is very very good for me. i ate my dinner at about 9 or so, and it filled me. wasn't too big or anything, but it filled me. so i woke up around 3am and i was STARVING! i didn't get up and eat because eating gives me energy and i didn't want to be up all night again. i just tossed and turned for 2 hours and went back to sleep. so in the morning i ate my usual bowl of cereal, which fills me up, but then about a half hour after that i'm starving again. i know that i can't be pregnant for two reasons...first of all i'm on the pill and i'm very good about taking it and taking it on time, and second of all, my period started today. i've never been extreemly hungry all the time on my period usually...so its not that. i'm just scared that i'm going to wake up starving in the night again and i'm hoping its not something serious. (i tend to be a worry wart....i think the worst in situations like this....ie, tapeworms! fluke pregnancy! cancer! etc)
sorry for all the info that might not have been needed...i just wanted to be sure that i answered any questions about anything else going on in my life that might be a culprit.
thanks so much!!

Hi Doc,
I've got a dilemma. My entire life, and especially now, I have been a very sexually curious and open individual. However, my issue is that i haven;t been able to find any scene or community that explores on this and really thrives on experiencing new or unusual sexual enterprises. To add more restrictions to the equation, I am only 17 and I cannot join many communities that will accept me. Do you have any tips/suggestions?

Hey Doc,

Outta curiosity:

First-- do you think the fact that some people are willing to go to the length of, I dunno, creating a site dedicated to fantasies of Roy Orbison being wrapped in clingfilm is an optimistic sign of what's ahead for humanity?

Second-- why Roy Orbison?!?

Hey Doc, is radio hate monger and TV gasbag Michael Savage your bastard son? If so, can you cuff him upside the head a few times for his stupid statements like saying Africa is full of "Turd World Countries" and that anti-war protesters should be executed?

If he's not, can I?

Dear huddled masses,

Let it be known that Doc Savage respects your privacy. If you are in need of my advice and wish to preserve your anonymity, feel free to post your question in the 'comments' section of this entry. I'm well aware that there are many people who need help and guidance who are not as yet members of this community, nor even of the majority of the human population who have LiveJournals. Heroes can't be choosers. If I may coin a phrase that ought to be used for centuries to come, the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, or the one.

Even if that one is Doc Savage.

Here to help,
Clark Savage, Jr.

Hello, Mr. Savage. In one of my recent posts in my journal (arenarot) I decided to go for the old "ask me anything" routine. Unfortunately, I was given a question that I just couldn't find the answer to so I thought I'd take advantage of your most generous service and pass this question along to you. I thank you in advance for helping me out of an awkward livejournal situation!

Here is the question:

Alex writes;

Soon I will be flying to Southern California. At Spokane I have to present my ticket and check in even though I won't be checking any baggage. This will allow me to proceed to the gate.
---When I land in Salt Lake City and have to change planes, do I need to go to the Canada Air main counter again to check in or can I proceed straight to the gate with ticket in hand???
Please note I have made close to 60 flights, however all were before the first Gulf War.

In closing I'd like to congratulate you on your new talk show on MSNBC. I will be tuning in for sure!

Is there a reason you aren't logging in your Livejournal more often? Are you having so many adventures that you don't have time to write them up, or are you sitting around with Lamont Cranston and The Spider sipping drinks and rehashing the good old days?

Time:12:40 am.
I started a lively debate here in my LiveJournal at mrdankelly. After reviewing many of James Bama's book covers, I have to ask: Why can't a man as rich, brilliant, and scarily buff as you, good doctor, pick shirts that don't rip and tear to shreds so easily (and, I might add, artfully... you always seems to have enough shoulder left to keep the damn shirt from falling off)? Have you tried the Filson company? And why don't your suspiciously form-fitting pants rip?

Subject:A new purchase
Posted by:roseseule.
Time:2:45 pm.
I purchased a complete run of the novels by Will Murry about you that were written in the early 90's at a half price book store. I have the first four of them already, but know that they are fairly rare. What would be the best way to sell off my duplicates? I want to know what you think the best way to make the most profit off of this purchase?
