Superman: Up, Up and Away! (Trade Paperback)

First appearance
Last appearance





Clark Kent is adjusting to a life without super-powers. He throws himself into his work and even manages to surpass Lois Lane as the Daily Planet's star investigative reporter. Clark plays it close to the vest and digs up as much information as possible concerning the recent activity of Intergang. However, there is still the matter of Lex Luthor to contend with. Politically and financially ruined, Luthor feels betrayed by the very city he helped to build. He embarks upon an ambitious plan to destroy Metropolis using technology culled from Superman's home planet – Krypton. Stockpiling all of the world's Kryptonite, and using a relic known as the Sunstone, Luthor manages to resurrect an ancient Kryptonian warship that once belonged to the alien terrorist General Zod. To keep Metropolis' heroes distracted long enough for him to complete his work, he arranges for various villains to spring up all across town, to wreak as much havoc as possible. Throughout the chaos, Superman's powers slowly return and he prepares for a final face-to-face confrontation with his arch nemesis.


This storyline ran through four issues of Action Comics and four issues of Superman (Volume 1) in 2006. All issues were written by Kurt Busiek and Geoff Johns, with artwork by Pete Woods. Terry and Rachel Dodson provided the cover illustrations with coloring assists from Alex Sinclair. Brad Anderson provided the interior coloring. The story is a One Year Later tie-in and chronologically takes place following the events of the fifty-two issue weekly maxi-series 52. "Up, Up, and Away" expands upon plotlines that originally developed during the World's Finest story-arc in the first six issues of Superman/Batman as well as the final issue of the 2006 summer-crossover event, "Infinite Crisis". During Infinite Crisis, Superman and the Superman of Earth-Two stopped the threat of Superboy-Prime by dragging him through the center of the red sun, Rao. The red solar radiation robbed all three heroes of their powers, but they were able to successfully defeat Superboy-Prime. The massive exposure to radiation completely robbed Superman of his powers, and it has taken him the better part of a year before he begins to regain them.

Superman #650 and #651 were both reprinted with black-and-white variations of their original covers. Action Comics #837 was likewise reprinted, with an alternately colored cover. All eight chapters of the storyline were collected in the Superman: Up, Up, and Away! trade paperback.

Up, Up and Away
Carl Johnson, Wu Zi Mu, Zero and Guppy discussing the next step to robbing Caligula's Palace
Game: Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
For: No Boss
Location: Spinybed, Las Venturas
Reward: Respect, Leviathan at airstrip in Verdant Meadows
Unlocked by: Cop Wheels

Up, Up, and Away! is the second to the last mission in the Heist strand of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.


Carl Johnson recently seized four HPV-1000 Police motorcycles to be used as outriders to escort the armored van Carl plans to use to haul the off the cash without raising suspicion to his team. His last step would be to somehow obtain an armored van and respray it with the Caligula's Casino logo, but he makes up his mind that he won't raise suspicion to his team by doing a simple carjacking. Zero gives him the idea to hijack a 'sky crane,' called a Leviathan. Carl heads over to K.A.C.C., the fuel depot in Spinybed, northeast Las Venturas. CJ penetrates the compound while keeping soldiers armed with assault rifles at bay. Carl takes down a pair of Hunters using a gun emplacement, before lifting off with the Leviathan. He heads to the depot, and using the magnetic winch attached to the helicopter, lifts an armored van and airlifts it to the airstrip in Verdant Meadows.


Carl Johnson: OK, we got the bikes. And Woozie's taken care of the uniforms. Now, we just gotta get an armored van and re-spray it with the Caligula's Casino logo.

Wu Zi Mu: Why don't we steal one while it's on its rounds? That way we can make some money too.

Carl Johnson: No, I don't want to get the crew caught up in some street level jacking - it could get ugly.

Zero: I... I have an idea? Um... Have you ever seen those helicopters they use to lift heavy loads?

Guppy: Yeah, they call em 'sky cranes'. We could lift the whole truck and take them to someplace safe.

Wu Zi Mu: Then we need to steal a sky crane. Unfortunately, I'm not a pilot.

Zero: No, me neither.

Guppy: Hey, don't look at me.

Triad #2: Or me.

Carl Johnson: Shit. I'll fly it, then. We can respray it at the airstrip.

Zero: Yeah, Carl. It'll be just like fighting Berkley, only bigger!

Carl Johnson: Yeah, thanks for that.

(After transporting the van and the sky crane to the airstrip)

Guppy: Heeey, CJ, you never cease to amaze me!

Carl Johnson: Heh Heh, good lookin, where's Woozie?

Guppy: I don't know. He insisted on driving here himself. He could be anywhere.

Carl Johnson: Heh heh, yeah I guess. Alright dude, I'm outta here. I'll see y'all later.


The reward for completing the mission is increased Respect and the Leviathan will always spawn at the Aircraft Graveyard in Verdant Meadows.
