Synopsis for "The Ghost of Superman"

A black-and-white clad woman with a skull-painted face calling herself the Silver Banshee terrorizes Metropolis by rampaging through bookstores looking for a certain book while killing whoever she touches. When Superman confronts her, he discovers (though seemingly a bit too late) that it's not her touch that kills, but rather her voice. As Metropolis mourns for the loss of Superman as he lies lifeless in his coffin, his ghost seemingly emerges to carry on the fight. As Silver Banshee plows through another bookstore in order to find the book, she confronts Superman's ghost, who is unaffected by her killing voice, nor by her deadly scream. As she vanishes, Superman appears alive, revealing that the Silver Banshee's voice had only rendered him unconscious, and that his "ghost" was really the Martian Manhunter, who both discover that the Silver Banshee's power has no effect over somebody whose identity is masked.



Notes

Trivia

  • At this point in the title's publishing history, Action Comics served as a Superman team-up book. The guest star for this issue was intended as a mystery with the cover copy reading, "Superman & ??????????". The surprise guest star for this issue was the Martian Manhunter.
