The Appalachian Mountains

A mountain range of eastern North America which extends from Newfoundland, Gaspe Peninsula, and New Brunswick in Canada some 1,200 miles southwestward to central Alabama. In September-October 1947, after Lex Luthor has focused his diabolical "heat-ray" on the Atlantic Ocean and sent a torrent of boiling water sweeping toward Metropolis, Superman saves the city by uprooting the entire Appalachian mountain range and dropping it between Metropolis and the onrushing wall of water. Later, after the boiling waters have receded, Superman returns the mountains to their proper geographical location (S No. 48/1: "The Man Who Stole the Sun!"). (TGSB)
