12 page Superman story "Journey Into Ruin"

Characters Superman [also as Clark Kent]; Wilbur Wolfingham; Gloria Partridge; Taylor Baldwin; John Armitage; ex-Senator Trent; Lois Lane
Synopsis Wilbur Wolfingham plots to swindle money from several wealthy people by convincing them that he can put them in suspended animation for 25 years, then revive them in a fantastic future world with their youth intact. When Wolfingham knocks out his clients for what should only be a few hours, Superman intervenes and puts Wolfingham out too, then creates a fake version of Metropolis in the future, one racked by poverty and despair. Superman explains to Wolfingham and his marks that because people did not strive to create a better world, the world fell into ruin. When they all see the error of their ways, Superman reveals his ruse.
