In Today's segment, we take a look at the time Superman used timetravel to screw over a Native American who had a legitimate claim to the land Metropolis is built on...

Triggerwarning for old timey racism.

The first page sets the tone...

Judge: Damn, if only the US government didn't always uphold our treaties with Native American people! Oh well, we have to cave I guess, not like these documents are so old that they're more a historical curiousity than actual valid legal material or anything...

Superman: Yeah I'm carrying out the same plot as Lex Luthor in Superman Returns, shut up!

The laws of time and space mean nothing to Superman! Also, the commuters to that building better get boats sorted out, otherwise they're kind of marooned.
More on my blog if you want to see how it's resolved.

Interestingly, this also ended up being the scheme the Joker took up in the 1960s Batman show, as well as in a Canadian literacy comic that Linkara reviewed on his show way back when...

They are going to demolish a skyscraper... with sledgehammers. Does nobody see a problem with this method?

See, until he actually gets someone to fork over some rent, Beecher can't afford more than two guys with sledgehammers.

It's all good provided you jump back really quickly at the end.

Lois: Clark! This has got the be the story of the Year! No! The Decade! A whole city taken over by one old document! We need to get down every detail!
Clark: Yeah uh it's... it's something alright. Anyway I'm just gonna go... to bed... or get lunch or something. Let me know how it turns out... I guess... Or don't, whatever.
L: But this is sensational, the people have to know everything!
C: Eeeeeeeeeh... *Slinks away*

Linking to a site which contains the entire story (even if it is your own site) , is breaking the spirit of the all important "1/3 rule" which scans_daily lives by, so please remove the link forthwith.

Posting, or linking, to whole stories puts the site is a very precarious position, so please don't expose us to that level of risk.

Land made with huge imported rocks would probably not be suitable land for just dumping a building on. And what about foundations and whatnot?
