Another days work on the streets of Newark. Benny’s still working as a plain clothes police officer but now he’s driving his own personal beat up car. He knew the criminals knew the cops by their unmarked cars and he wanted to sneak up on them with his own rusty car with a smashed bumper. He talked the department into giving him a police radio in the car so he could be on the scene as fast as his 54 Dodge would get him there. He was finally off duty and on his way home when a call came over the radio of a robbery in progress at Hopp’s Drug Store only 2 blocks from his house. He was at the scene in a flash with his hand on his revolver as he entered the drug store and announced he was a cop. He observed 2 criminals with stockings over their head, one holding a .38 caliber revolver and one with a bloody knife. He then witnessed one victim bleeding from his head which was slashed from a knife as he struggled with the outlaw, the other victim was on the floor bleeding from a gun shot to his leg. Benny quickly apprehended both bandits single handed with his gun drawn on them and disarming both men. He then secured them both up against the wall until the calvary arrived.
He was awarded an official commendation : Class B, Medal of Merit, for his dedicated police work, alertness, quick response, courage, devotion and the prevention of more serious injuries.
He sounds like Superman to me…Wikipedia lists Superman’s abilities as SUPERHUMAN STRENGTH, SPEED, INTELLIGENCE, INVULNERABILITY, FLIGHT, FREEZING BREATH, MULTIPLE EXTRASENSORY AND VISION POWERS, HEALING FACTOR ..
Look up in the sky, it’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, NOOOO it’s Benny Abruzzo…faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall fences in a single bound. Often disguised as a mild mannered guy fights the unending battle for truth, justice and the American Way…
