I thought I would start a thread about this mischievous fella.

Page 13 "I've been working the hotel bar here since you bought the old place. Must be nearly 8 years now."
Page 13 "You could even say we're old friends, Mr. Glenmorgen. Do you remember the time? The time you lost your lovely silk tie?" Shown holding the purple tie from Action Comics #1
Action Comics #8
Page 1 Not shown but talked about...... Mr. Glenmorgen - "...they're trapped in hell, and the bartender is the devil."
Detective Blake - " There's no bartender here, sir."
Page 5 Mr. Glenmorgen suggests that all the bad things happening to him, are being caused by The Little Man.
Page 29 "... we have a challenge for you Mr. Zarov." "Can you kill a bullet proof man?"
Ok, so that is what I've collected so far. I do not have issue 9 yet, so I'm not sure if he shows up there.
From what I've gathered The Little Man is either Helping or Hindering Superman. With helping, I'm suggesting that he is helping mold Superman into the hero he is today, by putting him through "tests". I suggest this because of the Ghost and white dog talk.
Also the Little Man says "we" more than once. Is he part of something bigger? Or is he referring to the K-Men?
What are your thoughts? And if he is in issue 9. Please post what he does, or just wait till I get the book either this week or next.
Thanks for putting up with this winded post.
