"Superman’s Secret Revealed!" Superman Daily Newspaper Strip - October 30, 1944 to December 2, 1944
A broken teletype machine in a small-town affiliate of the Daily Planet produces a mangled headline which ties Superman romantically with a recently-engaged heiress. Connecting a handful of dots leads the Planet to reveal Superman’s secret identity as being the heiress’ actual fiancee, an unscrupulous cad who’s marrying to wealthy gal in order to fleece her blind and pay off her gambling debts.
The DNA of the Superman stories is slowly beginning to turn inward, focusing more on plots and problems within the chief supporting cast, particularly here as Superman’s primary goal isn’t so much disabusing the public of the misinformation which the Planet published or saving a young heiress from a predatory fortune-seeker, but saving Lois from the embarrassment of having her scoop exposed as a lie.
