A racketeer, "Big Mike" Caputo, enters Metropolis. The police chief warns him that one false move will mean jail time. Clark provokes him and receives a punch for his trouble. Then Superman follows Mike, secretly. Mike meets with two of his hirelings, telling him that he plans to run a racket in Metropolis. The two are unsure about his chances of success, especially given that this is Superman's city. When the man himself shows up, the two split quick, and Superman works Mike over, before telling him to leave town or there'll be more where that came from.
