Daily Panel | 'The fate you deserve'
From a May 1939 Superman newspaper strip by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.
Superman investigates the death of a scientist who developed "the most deadly weapon modern warfare has ever seen." Of course, the scientist was going to give it to the U.S. government only for use in a "defensive war," but he's murdered by a gang of war profiteers and the formula is stolen for sale to a foreign power.
