World’s Finest Comics vol.1 #7 – Cover date Fall 1942

Superman atypically finds himself at the core of a tense, gothic murder mystery – the surviving members of a fraternity are gathered together twenty years after graduation, trapped in a cabin by a mysterious voice who promises to kill them all! There is, of course, the necessary science-fiction flair; the cabin is jet-powered, and launches itself into the stratosphere, rocketing at terrifying speeds while the vengeful voice pledges to pick off the middle-aged men one by one.

A highly-atmospheric adventure in the era where Superman could still straddle genre without blinking, this remains one of the strangest and strongest stories of the Man of Steel’s early years.
