Michael is joined by J. David Weter for a look at four thrilling Superman tales from SUPERMAN #5. Follow along as Superman smashes and trashes a variety threats from slot machine rackets, crooked newspapermen, life-giving drugs and an incense menace, courtesy of the nefarious Luthor! Plus, more of Superman’s powers bubble to the surface and the guys uncover helpful hints on how to take over the world! (Hint: It involves not making statues of yourself to be use in your schemes.)
