"Underworld Politics"Superman Daily Newspaper Strip - November 13, 1939 to December 16, 1939
Superman stands behind a crusading District Attorney whose war on crime earns the ire of corrupt political boss “Big Mike” Hennesey. It’s a boilerplate Superman-Versus-Crime story but, more importantly, it makes one of the pivotal changes of the Superman mythos: The Daily Star is idly rechristened The Daily Planet, the name it will bear in the upcoming radio serial and, very soon, in the pages of the comic book itself.
