After the bombing of the United States Capitol, Metropolis News 8 covered the local aspects of the story due to Wallace Keefe, the suspected culprit, being a Metropolis citizen. The story included speculation that Superman was involved in the incident, largely due to his inability to prevent the blast despite being mere feet away, in combination with the fact that the hearing was intended to give control of his actions to the people.[3]
