Superman comes to the rescue in the issue’s first story, Superman versus Luthor, after Metropolis is rocked by its first ever earthquake! After Superman helps with rescue efforts, Clark Kent discovers that a powerful new laser weapon that is coveted by none other than his nemesis, Luthor, caused the tremor. The evil mastermind challenges Superman to a battle that pits our hero’s Kryptonian powers against Luthor’s scientific weaponry: if Superman wins, Luthor will admit defeat but if Superman loses, the caped hero must retire from his crime-fighting ways. Superman then performs incredible feats including outpacing super-speed planes, leaping high beyond the stratosphere, even surviving an exploding grenade—but the contest turns out to merely be a distraction, allowing Luthor’s henchman to steal the device. Will Superman be able to find Luthor and retrieve the laser before it can cause more destruction It just might take another incredible feat of strength to save the day…

About the Design:
As seen on the iconic cover of Superman #4 (1940), the reverse image features Superman performing an impressive feat of strength. Wearing his blue and red uniform with the original iconic ‘S’ shield, Superman responds to chaos in Metropolis by hoisting a building’s crumbling pillars above his head as citizens scramble around him to find safety. The striking image is a telling showcase of Superman’s incredible powers and is brought to life through finely detailed engraving and vibrant colour. A series of concentric circles frame the reverse, adding depth to the overall design and creating the illusion that Superman is poised to step out of the coin, while the circled rim includes the engraved face value “100 DOLLARS”, the word “CANADA” and the year “2015”.
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded customer paperboard box.
