Retro Records: Superman – Weatherspoon’s Catalyst (1975)

Great Krypton! Welcome back friends to another installment of Retro Records! This week we have a 1975 Power Records’ Superman LP story for your listening enjoyment entitled “Weatherspoon’s Catalyst”!

The story concerns a young biophysicist named D. Allison Weatherspoon who has just completed the creation that he is sure will absolutely change the world for the better, he calls it Voila – and it will provide an affordable and limitless power supply. Wanting to get the word out about his discovery he phones WGBS where a very interested Clark Kent makes the young man promise not to reveal his discovery until it can be handed over to Superman who will make sure that it will be used for the betterment of humanity.

Too bad for Weatherspoon that his phone call has been monitored and a group of evil-minded individuals abduct him before Clark Kent, Lois Lane, and Jimmy Olsen can get to the young’s man home. So the question is…can even Superman rescue Weatherspoon before the formula for his catalyst is stolen through the use of a truth serum?

Find out the answer for yourself on Retro Records as we give a listen to Superman: Weatherspoon’s Catalyst!
