Storyline

A steamship, an airliner and a train have all been destroyed over the past year. Perry White receives a telephone call from someone calling himself the Wrecker. The Wrecker claims responsibility for the incidents and now wants $100,000 or else more targets will be destroyed. Superman prevents another ship from being blown up, intercepting a small model plane carrying a powerful explosive. Clark Kent, Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen investigate further, checking out the possible source of a mysterious noise that can be heard in the background when the Wrecker calls Perry. All of this comes as the Wrecker says he'll try to blow up multiple targets simultaneously if he doesn't get the $100,000. Written by Bill Koenig

One for the Wrecker
4 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Transportation is disrupted in Metropolis when an extortionist who calls himself "The Wrecker" begin blowing up ships, trains, and planes. Because he has so many targets, it is hard to track him down but a coalition of big time owners of these conveyances is brought to the Planet offices to try to find an answer. Perry White blusters around and Superman gets into the act. At one point, a remote control plane with a warhead is intercepted by the Man of Steel. This is the way these things are being blown up even though they have been thoroughly checked out by the authorities. It is now a matter of how to be in two places at the same time that makes for a difficult solution.
