Morgan Edge
Information
Real name: Morris Edelstein
Species: Human
Base: Metropolis
Affiliations: Galaxy Communications (president/owner)
Abilities: Businessman

Morgan Edge was a wealthy businessman, who was the president and owner of Galaxy Communications, which was headquartered in the city of Metropolis. As the owner of the major conglomerate, he also owned the Daily Planet, which itself is a Galaxy Communications company.

Edge was in many ways a stereotype of a ruthless capitalist, intervening in the Planet's homey atmosphere and challenging the authority of the somewhat older Perry White, but he was a decent man who had moments of good-heartedness and maintained reasonably friendly relationships with most of his employees, including Clark Kent. Following the takeover of the Planet, Edge promoted Kent to news anchorman on WGBS.

As one of the wealthiest men in Metropolis, Edge was a major political figure in the city and frequently encountered Superman, the subject of many of his network's news stories, whom he, like most others, failed to realize was also Clark Kent.
