Storyline

When one of the Planet's warehouses catches fire Superman arrives in time to stop it. Later Perry learns that a large payroll he placed in the safe, is not there. So the insurance company refuses to pay, claiming that the fire was deliberately set to cover up the money's disappearance, which Perry knows he didn't do. So he sets out to find out who did. What he or anyone doesn't know is that a couple of guys who call themselves "The Firemen's Friend" because they go to fires and serve coffee and donuts to the firemen, were the ones who stole the money by using a fireproof suit and a special hearing aid that can help them open any safe. When Perry runs into them, he notices a few things that are odd. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Stupid on the One Hand......
13 February 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Two crooks, one the brains of the outfit and the other a wisecracking oaf run a kind of portable lunch counter where they supply coffee and donuts to firefighters at the scenes of fires. This allows them to be inside the normal safety zone. A fire at the Daily Planet warehouse draws them and they become aware that there is a safe there with the entire payroll for the month. Why this is where money is kept is beyond me. Using a fire resistant suit, the dumb guy goes in the blaze, opens the safe, and steals the money. Perry White decides to try to solve the robbery himself, but ends up a captive. This is a real mystery and Clark/Superman feels helpless to figure it out. Sadly, for the bad guys, a statement becomes critical to the solving of the case.
