[Superboy v3 #9]
[Panel one: Superboy, standing on two pink boogie boards like they were hover devices, flies in over a group of beach-goers. Two small children — a boy (Li’i) clinging to the boogie board under his right foot, and a girl (Iolani) holding on to his left leg — are flying with him. Superboy is, as usual, narrating his exploits.]
Superboy: BIG PROBLEM! Losing altitude! Out of control! WHOA! Almost buzz-cut that moke! Total system failure! We’re goin’ down!
Iolani: The water! Head for the water!
Superboy: Now there’s an idea! Hold on..! …and please return your tray tables to their upright, locked positions!
[Panel two: A long shot of the ocean and beach. The group makes a “pwissh” sound effect as they ‘crash’ into the ocean.]
Superboy: Another successful crash landing by Superboy Airlines! And as an added bonus, your seat cushions make excellent boogie-board-type floatation devices!
[Panel three: Tana Moon is shown from the neck up, observing the trio (We will later see that she is seated on the ground). Over her right shoulder, a slightly taller man of similar skin tone and facial features is watching the same action. This is her brother Kekane.]
Kekane: Looks like I missed quite a show.
Tana: Only the first act. He has his moments, I must admit. And your kids love him.
[Panel one: Closeup of the siblings’ faces. Kekane looks amused, while Tana seems thoughtful, eyes focused on something in the distance.]
Kekane: (teasing) Only my kids—?
Tana: (serious) Superboy and I still need to… sort out how we feel, Kekane. That’s why we came down here from Honolulu, to—
[Panel two: Point of view changes to over the siblings’ shoulders — Superboy coming in for a landing. He’s wearing tight red swim trunks, a short-sleeved, loose yellow button-up shirt with a red S-shield, and a backwards blue baseball cap. He interrupts what Tana was saying to shout…]
Superboy: —snorkle! We must SNORKLE! Princess Iolani has spoken!
Kekane: Fine. Anything to get her mind off tattooing.
[Panel three: A shot of Kekane’s hands opening a blue duffel bag and pulling out snorkle gear.]
Kekane: Are those big where you go to school, Superboy? Tattoos?
[Panel four: A close up of Superboy’s face. He’s smirking a little.]
Superboy: Wouldn’t know, Kekane. I don’t do school…
[Panel five: From Superboy’s point of view, we see that he’s looking at Tana, who has her back to him and is getting a towel.]
[Panel six: Superboy keeps talking, and slips his x-ray specs on to get a better look…]
Superboy: …I’m more the independent study type.
