Action Comics vol.1 #15 - Cover date August 1939
Action Comics takes a break from the menace of the Ultra-Humanite (“Ultra” to his friends) in order for Superman to return to his personal crusade for the less fortunate.
Made wise to the ill fortunes of an orphanage called “Kids Town”, the man of Tomorrow acts to raise a much-needed $2 million for the beleaguered institution - a charge which eventually leads him to a sunken treasure also being pursued by a criminal gang and a deep-sea danger zone filled with some admittedly optimistic Superman-hunting sharks.
This short break from Superman’s first recurring villain is rectified in a few issues - and, sadly, shortly thereafter wrapped up completely.
