Superman Meets "The Phantom Quarterback"
Superman #264 June 1973 DC Comics Grade VG/F - $6.99
Script by Cary Bates, pencils by Curt Swan, inks by Murphy Anderson.
Former Metropolis Meteors star quarterback is walking down the street when he sees a baby falling from a building. He saves the infant, but awakens an old knee injury that he gained during his pro football years. A scientific "miracle worker" named Frederic Fowe witnesses the spectacle and offers to treat Steve's injuries. He uses a special solar healing ray which quickly restores Lombard to proper health. However, the ray also demonstrates an unusual side-effect, as it creates a solar-powered energy being based upon Steve's likeness. The energy being adorns itself in one of Steve’s old football jerseys and becomes the Phantom Quarterback.
The Phantom Quarterback bounds across Metropolis committing random acts. Superman arrives on the scene, and determines that the entity is more a nuisance than an aid, and so he launches the creature into outer space where it impacts with a sunspot on Earth’s sun.
Later, Morgan Edge of WGBS hires Steve Lombard to work for him as a sportscaster. Clark Kent and Lois Lane immediately take a disliking to Steve who irritates them with his aloof attitude and quirky behavior.
