"The War for Peace!": Superman recovers a religious artifact beloved by two races and stops them from going to war upon each other on Christmas Eve.

Quote1.png I'm not hearing this-- Your holiday, his holiday... Don't you understand what's being celebrated tonight? Hope, and peace, and love! You can't do battle in the name of love! This is a season for everyone... But your anger cheapens it! Every time a man raises his hand against his neighbor in the name of his faith, he renounces his faith! No good has ever come of a holy war, and never will! Now I want you all to forget your differences, and remember the principles you share! Quote2.png
