"Superman: The Man Who Murdered Metropolis!": Superman must discover where Neutron has planted an atomic bomb which, if and when it goes off, will destroy Metropolis.

Quote1.png I'm getting kind of tired using the queasy stomach routine so I can show up as Superman-- But it's just one of the things I have to do to keep my secret identity a secret! Besides, being Clark is one of the all-too-few times I get the chance to relax... It's like taking off my boots! And it's certainly the only time I get when people relate to me as an ordinary man! All I ever want is to simply do my job, but so many people think of me as a celebrity... Something I never intended. Quote2.png
Clark Kent
