QUOTE: "Too late. He's caught us... in something that smells like year-old milk and feels like wet laundry and razor blades." —The Flash in Shadow Thief's grip

SUMMARY: Wally West and Linda Park visit Solar City, a beautiful island resort that is still under construction but currently open to journalists. Young Billy Batson's on hand as well, and a good thing, too. A dilemma is brewing which will take both the Flash and Captain Marvel to eliminate. Carl Sands, the supervillain known as the Shadow Thief, has made a secret pact with the demon Neron and now plots to use the hellish powers he gained in the deal against Professor Bennet, the man whose genius built the solar powered city. What private history do Sands and Bennet share? Why does Bennet feel as if he is the one who's sold his soul? The Flash and Captain Marvel must race against time to discover the motivations of all involved, before Solar City is transformed into nothing but living shadows amongst rubble.
