Oh boy. Sumner's on to something. I wonder how hard it will be for him to dig up any info about John if he's figured out that the Phantom is from Earth. This continues to be a great story. Please hurry with the answers about John's past. You're killing me with the suspense!
Author's Response: Regretably, it's still going to be a while before we get any DEFINITE answers about John's past- keep in mind that Sumner doesn't even know John's name at this point, and even if he did it's not exactly unusual enough for him to be able to identify a 'John' who went missing from Earth in the right kind of time frame to have become the Phantom-, but I CAN promise you that answers about John's past WILL be coming before this part of the series is over.
