Walking with Superman: Day 318
All around the country, Superman has met people and families struggling to get by. Many have found themselves suddenly homeless, and the people who have the least seem to be hit the hardest. Credit card companies drain the poor with hidden fees, and banks charge exorbitant amounts for miniscule overdrafts and withdrawals. But the family whose house was foreclosed due to a bank error was the last straw. The Man of Steel is in Charlotte, NC, at the headquarters of one of the largest banks in the country, and he's doing a little foreclosing of his own. There's a right and wrong in this world, and Superman is tired of seeing the people we trust with basic necessities constantly choosing the latter. So he's shut down the bank's headquarters, and he won't be letting anyone inside until some changes are made. But has Superman finally gone too far, or is the banking industry the one enemy more powerful than the Man of Steel?
