Walking with Superman: Day 201
There's nothing halfway about the way Superman gets treated when he arrives in Mason City, Iowa! The town's throwing a parade to honor the Man of Steel, and the Mason City High School Marching Band gets the chance to try out their newly-donated instruments. But when the music begins shattering windows and sidewalks, when the instruments continue playing even after the students have stopped, and when Superman is wracked with agony from the assault on his super-hearing, it becomes clear that there's terrible trouble in Mason City, trouble with a capital P--and that stands for "Prankster"! As Superman struggles to free himself and this music-proud city from Loomis' musical mayhem, he wonders--maybe he oughtn't have given Iowa a try!
