A youngish woman in business attire opens the door to a limo and greets Godfrey inside. She compliments him on his latest interview and takes a seat beside him. She wants to see his final chapter before he posts it online. He holds up a flash drive and says, "I kept the only copy close to me for safe keeping." As his publicist, she thinks she should have a look, but he just pockets the drive and says the secret stays with him. She doesn't push the issue. She remarks with wonder how just three weeks ago, he was a "small-time radio host" and now everyone in the city knows this creepy weirdo! Or words to that effect. [Also, he wrote and published a book on his new cause. - Z] He has ambitions beyond Metropolis. "I want to touch every soul," he says. How does he plan to do that? "If I can plant an idea... a seed of doubt within people... it will grow until it devours their faith in each other and in these heroes." The faithless will then be ready for a new leader. The publicist practically has dollar signs in her eyes. Then Godfrey starts talking about "humans" being their own undoing and she suggests he needs to take a little break. She gets out of the limo. He fishes in his coat pocket for an invitation to a "Maxwell's Club DeSaad." The card heralds it as "Metropolis [sic] Premium Fetish Party" and promises performances from such ill-named luminaries as XX-Kitten and Poss Sinstress. His voice going all evil and gravelly, he instructs his driver to take him there. "Yes, Sir," Lois says from the driver's seat, not noticing the change in his voice. He returns the favor by not noticing his chauffeur is Lois Lane, even though she looks right at him.
