The second of two Supreme Power specials! As a young boy, Kyle Richmond‹the man who would one day become Nighthawk‹witnessed the senseless murder of his parents. There was no reason for their deaths, no provocation -- they were just simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. It was a traumatic event that has left him scarred for life‹and turned him into a hero more feared than the criminals he polices. Now it's happening again...but on a much larger scale. The people of Chicago‹men, women and children‹are dying in the streets, victims of a monster whose thirst for slaughter cannot be quenched, whose soul is a bottomless void, and whose scars run even deeper than Nighthawk's. Long ago, Kyle Richmond looked into the face of madness‹now, it's looking back at him. And it's flashing a killer smile.
