Synopsis
Two scientists create a liquid distillate of lightning, thunder, concentrated sun atoms, and a teaspoon of sugar. Later, a mouse dunks his cheese in the liquid before eating it. He discovers he can fly and has super-strength. He decides to dedicate his powers to a war on crime -- and cats! Using his super-vision, the mouse locates a costume shop and creates his Supermouse uniform. He turns on the radio and learns that a wealthy young heiress named Minerva Churchmouse has been kidnapped and is being held for $400,000,000.17. Supermouse ultimately captures the gang and recovers the money.

Indexer Notes

First appearance and origin of Supermouse. Supermouse's powers include flight, super-strength (the strength of 14,376 men and a boy), super-vision (a.k.a. super-sight), super-scent, super-hearing, and super-teeth. He needs to periodically eat his super-cheese in order to renew his powers.
