Walking with Superman: Day 340
All it took was one sick day. Ray Jensen spent the day in bed, rather than coming into Hardwick, Vermont's Electric Department, and as a result, his entire life has come crashing down around him. A notice about a suspicious unsigned check led to the revelation that Jensen embezzled over a million dollars over the last several years. What's stranger, it seems he's also been skimming electricity, apparently draining it directly from the generators! Visiting reporter Clark Kent helped break the story, but the bizarre energy theft looks like the sort of case that would interest Superman. He tracks down the fugitive Jensen, but finds a far more familiar face than he would have expected! "Ray Jensen" is but an alias, a concocted identity developed by one Dr. Torval Freeman, formerly part of that violet villain, the Parasite! Freeman is sick, hungry, and has nothing left to lose--meaning Superman is in for the fight of his life!
