Synopsis for "The Jolly Jailhouse!"
This story is reprinted from Superman #139.
Perry White sends Clark Kent to the island of Voroda where there is political instability and potential for a great story. There Clark begins his report and learns that the evil Colonel Stradi is attempting to over throw the democracy on Voroda and install himself as a dictator. When Stradi learns of Clark's reports, he has him arrested and locked in a cell.
Now a prisoner, Clark secretly uses his super-powers to find ways for himself, and his cell mates to escape their cells in an attempt to discredit Stradi as a competent leader. When Clark is put before the firing squad, he secretly drinks a bunch of acid and spits it out on their bullets when he's lined up to get shot. When everyone believes that Stradi mistakenly gave his firing squad blank shells, he is completely discredited. When the government officials who run Voroda return to the island, his army has deserted him, and Stradi -- his dreams of being a dictator of the small island crushed -- is put in a cell himself, and all his prisoners are set free.
