World’s Finest Comics #20, December 1945
“The Toyman: Super-Scientist!/Larceny Without Loot/Money Talks/Brooklyn Botches the Bakas/George Tanaka, America/King of Coins!” Cover Artist: Jack Burnley
When Superman tries to recover a “human wavelength detector” from the villainous Toyman, he learns it will be more of a challenge than he expected. The Toyman is using that same machine to prepare for the Man of Steel’s arrival by detecting the hero’s presence through his distinctive Kryptonian vibrations. Meanwhile, the Coin King is conning people in Gotham City through the use of “sure-fire” treasure maps, making his marks promise to share half of their loot, and Batman has to stop the scam. Other features star Green Arrow, Zatara, the Boy Commandos, and Johnny Everyman.
