  For those of you curious, the secret code in this one says: "LET STRENGTH COURAGE AND JUSTICE BE NOT ONLY A MOTTO BUT A TRUE WAY OF LIVING FOR ALL OF US IN THESE GLORIOUS UNITED STATES" (solved via quipqiup).

  After the incredible battles with Luthor and the Ultra-Humanite, this one seemed to be a bit of a letdown. It's Superman playing social justice warrior once again, assisting a millionaire who has a prodigal son with a gambling addiction. It was sort of a cop-out ending, though; he does get to spend the inheritance, just not on himself at least.

3 stars.
