Daily Panel | ‘I declare war on reckless drivers!’

From Action Comics #12 (May 1939). Written by Jerry Siegel; drawn by Joe Shuster.

In an especially odd mission, Superman tries to put an end to automobile fatalities by destroying impounded vehicles, used car lots, unsafe manufacturers, and generally terrorizing careless motorists. Some of his actions – scaring a drunk driver into sobriety, for example – are noble, but others – like physically harming radio employees to bully them into letting him on the air to declare his war – are pretty awful.
