    Between Zero Hour and the launch of the 1999 JSA, the main place to find Society stories was in James Robinson's STARMAN. That was a great run and I'd recommend reading all of it, if you can--it's...

    The cape "making" you fly is something I remember, too. But this was metaphorical. It wasn't that the cape made him fly, but having a cape when you were playing Superman was a way to convey the idea...
