Inspector Henderson's son, Ray, has a keen hobby: collecting various sounds on spools of tape. He has a lion's roar, a cannon firing, even the sound of bullets bouncing off Superman's chest. Meanwhile, Henderson is searching for a dangerous criminal known as Muscles McGurk. He is shocked and dismayed to find that Ray may be the gangster's accomplice. It seems that McGurk has been making use of Ray's sound recordings for his own nefarious purposes. After Ray is kidnapped by McGurk, it's up to Clark Kent to interpret a cryptic clue the young man left behind; and then it's up to Superman to rescue him from the gunman's clutches. Written by J. Spurlin

Not Much Faith in Each Other
6 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Inspector Henderson's son is a sound expert. He collects individual sound effects from many settings and edits them. The Daily Planet crew comes to interview him about this fascinating hobby. While there a bad guy named Claude James (who has been partners with Muscles McGurk....I love these names) is in the office. He notices the tape recorder is running as a safe is opened. Soon thereafter, he and Muscles get back together and play a series of games of Old Maid. McGurk buys a tape from Henderson's son for a hundred bucks. After James is thrown in jail, the crime spree continues. It is assumed that the purchased tape incriminates the young man. Conclusions are leapt to and the possibility of arrest breaks Henderson's heart; he even removes himself from the case. Not long after, the kid is taken to a remote location, Echo Canyon, with his collection of tapes. I remember being amazed at the age of 10 or so how this was all solved. Mostly, I remember how little regard was paid to the kid's character and the assumption that he was guilty until proved innocent.
