Clark Kent and Jimmy Olsen, on duty as reporters, visit a club that is devoted to thumbing its collective nose at any and all superstitions. Members must walk under a ladder after entering the rented meeting house. Pins are left all over the floor, and members are forbidden to pick any up. The chairman calls the meetings to order by breaking a mirror. Their mascot, of course, is a black cat. But bad things begin to befall members. The floor nearly caves in during Kent and Olsen's visit. Later, a member's chemical company catches fire. None of these things are put down to bad luck: they are clearly the work of a saboteur. Suspicion falls on the meeting house's raving, superstitious landlord. It's up to Superman, however, to find the true culprit. Written by J. Spurlin

Kent Turns Into Charlie Chan
17 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Superstitions are debunked in this episode as Clark Kent and Jimmy Olsen combine to do a story on the "Anti-superstion Club" where members deliberately walk under ladders, step on cracks, have black cats cross in front of them, etc.

The landlord who owns the building where the meetings are held is shown to be a crackpot. That is used in the story as one of the members of the club tries to kill several of the others and blame it on the landlord.

Who is this surprise villain? You'll have to see as Kent gets all of the parties together in a room at the end to expose the criminal, a la Charlie Chan, tricking the evil guy into confessing.
