Henry Furst

The fiery old newspaper tycoon who, by fair means and foul, built the nationwide chain of Furst newspapers, a man of few scruples and fabulous wealth who has for years pursued, to the point of obsession, the secret of Superman's identity.

In February 1958, after imbibing a new formula that imitates the symptoms of approaching death, Furst summons Clark Kent to his deathbed and successfully tricks him into revealing his identity by invoking the solemnity of a dying man's last request. Fortunately for Superman, however, the drug Furst took had hallucinatory side-effects, and Furst recovers from its influence with only a mistaken recollection of what Clark Kent revealed to him (Act No. 237: Superman's Exposed Identity) (TGSB).
