Monkey Business
27 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For the first time, Superman disables a couple of guys by smashing their heads together. This is the story of a man when confronted by some soldiers, he sends his daughter with a locket with a secret formula that is apparently a defense against an enemy. He is then killed. The series ran during the height of the fear of communism and the threat of the bomb. Anyway, messages are being sent by an organ grinder by way of his monkey who wears a Superman shirt and climbs a drainpipe to deliver message to the crook du jour. Lois finds out that the daughter is in Washington to see the President and has the locket. She and the young woman are attacked by the bad guys on a train and severely injured. Superman arrives but has trouble finding the perpetrator. The monkey is the key.
