In what might be the first comedic story, Superman tackles the greatest threat of all-merchandising!

Nick Williams is a guy running around town claiming to be Superman's agent and slapping the Man of Steel's likeness on everything from billboards to motor oil. Clark Kent is rather eager to meet with Williams's client, although Lois Lane does drug him he still shows up and exposes the phony.
