Action Comics #8 (1939-01)

Superman

Oh, wow. In this one, Superman blames economic conditions for crime, and then he seeks to provide better housing for people by destroying their old homes so that the government will be forced to build new ones. He doesn't do anything by half measures.

Zatara and the Indian Prince

Well, Zatara puts down a rebellion. But... was it the right thing to do? Maybe rebellion was justified.
