Synopsis for "The Superman Hall of Trophies"

This story is reprinted from Superman's Pal, Jimmy Olsen #24.

Jimmy Olsen has been selected to be the official guide of the Superman Hall of Trophies, a tourist destination that is all about his best pal, the Man of Steel. While giving visitors a tour of the building, Superman decides to surprise Jimmy with a personal appearance. Going to a room that features a statue of Superman sitting on a throne (in commemoration of a time when Superman saved the nation of Domainia) Superman sees that the statue is disintegrating and tosses the dummy out a window.

With no other option, Superman takes the statue's place, but when Jimmy puts a crown on him, the Man of Steel is immobilized by the Green Kryptonite jewel given to the Hall by the Domainian royalty.

When Jimmy shows the tour a diamond, created by Superman, two crooks pull their guns and grab it. Superman is helpless, and Jimmy is unaware that he trapped his best friend with the Kryptonite crown, so Superman calls Jimmy's attention by burning an SOS into a Superman shirt with his fleeting powers.

Unable to free Superman, Jimmy uses devices that replicate Superman's super powers to first destroy their guns, and then blow the Kryptonite crown off Superman's head. Superman makes short work of the crooks, and the crowd resumes the tour with the actual Superman as a surprise guest.
