Comments: This is the last Tale of Kryptonite and continues from issue #177.
 Despite Jax-Ur’s words in this story, the Gold Kryptonite which is transported into the Phantom Zone has no effect whatever on their powers.
 Since acquired characteristics cannot be passed on, Jay-Ree’s and Joenne’s fears that they will pass on their lack of powers to their descendants is undoubtedly unfounded.  Also, given the fact that their doll house and existence is never again referred to, they probably return to Kandor.
 Jay-Ree and Joenne are named after scripter Jerry Siegel and his wife Joanne.
Synopsis: The chunk of Red Kryptonite is changed into Gold Kryptonite, capable of removing a Kryptonian’s super-powers permanently, by an atomic ray from a satellite’s battery.  Jay-Ree, a member of the Supermen Emergency Squad, and his lover Joenne send the Gold Kryptonite into the Phantom Zone, but are exposed to it and lose their powers.  For a time, they are given housing by Jimmy Olsen.  Then they are married by Superman and are kept in a doll house in Clark Kent’s apartment.

Villains: Brainiac and Jax-Ur of Earth-B, Marok, Zan-Ar, Ran-Zo, an unnamed Phantom Zone prisoner (all of the Earth-B universe; first and only appearance for all)
Comment: This story cannot have taken place in the canonical Earth-One universe.  Lois Lane is never depicted as present during the events surrounding Brainiac’s shrinking of Kandor, as shown in SUPERMAN #141.  Jor-El and Lara marry before the abduction of Kandor in SUPERMAN #141, not afterward as shown here.  Superman was present as an assistant to Jor-El during these events, and is not depicted on Krypton in this story.  Finally, if Lois was sent into the Phantom Zone by Jor-El when Kal-El was a toddler, as shown in this story, she would have had to spend over 20 years in the Zone and would have been seen by Superboy or Superman some time during that period.  Thus, this story must be declared non-canonical.
Synopsis: Lois Lane borrows a time-machine from Professor Potter, goes back to Krypton before its destruction, and tries to romance Jor-El before he can marry Lara.

Synopsis:  When a tiny invader from the world of Tang dies in the Fortress of Solitude, he reveals to Superman that his band of space-pirates intend to kidnap several scientists in Earth's dimension, including a Dr. Price, and to use them as components in a living computer.  With his dying breath, Yarr, the Tangian, tells Superman that his powers would be reduced to half-efficiency in their dimension.  Accordingly, Superman summons Supergirl, creates an elaborate ruse in which both he and she impersonate Dr. Price and Lois Lane, fake being given reptilian skin and Lois's i.q. being boosted by a radiation experiment gone awry, and arrange to both be kidnapped by the Tang pirates.  In that dimension, Superman's and Supergirl's powers are reduced, but their combined power is enough to defeat the Tangians.  On Earth, the real Lois has been kidnapped by Superman and Supergirl to keep her out of harm's way (while Price has himself gone into hiding).  Lois escapes and tries to solve the mystery on her own, but is told the truth by Superman and Supergirl when they return to Earth's dimension.  Supergirl explains that, since the Tang had telepathic powers that could read Lois's mind, but not super-minds like hers and Superman's, they had to keep her in the dark.

himself into insect forms to battle The Bug.  In the end, Lana Lang gets in touch with Supergirl, she assumes an "insect-Olsen" disguise, easily endures a deathtrap The Bug had set up for Jimmy, and captures the villain.

Villains: Jor-El and Prof. Vakox of Earth-B (first and only appearance for both), Brainiac of Earth-B
Comment: This story is probably not a canonical Superman story.  As shown in issue #36 (3), Jimmy Olsen was already on Krypton for some time prior to its destruction, and escaped from it by a time-machine just minutes before that event.  Since Jimmy Olsen was shown getting his signal-watch during that story, it is most probably the more canonical of these two stories.  As has been shown in other stories, if a time-traveller in the Earth-One (or Earth-Two) universe goes to a time-period in which he already exists, he either becomes a phantom or his “self” from that time is thrown into the time-period from which his later self left.  Also, though Jimmy Olsen had been Kal-El’s babysitter for some time (as shown in issue #36 (2)), Jor-El does not recognize him in this story.  Also, Kal-El is shown with Krypto only days before Krypton’s destruction (though, admittedly, no count of days is given on pg. 23, panel 4), even though he had been rocketed into space a long enough time beforehand for Jor-El to have had to create a robot dog named Spot, who is not the dog shown in this story.  Therefore, the entire story has to be moved to Earth-B.

 Shortly after this story Superman and Batman encounter Kralc in WORLD’S FINEST COMICS #181.
Synopsis: Superman has strange nightmares about having lived an entire lifetime on another planet.  When he checks the age of the reconstructed rocket that brought him to Earth, he finds it is over a hundred years old.
 Unknown to Superman, when his rocket passed into the space-warp between Krypton and Earth, it fell into a parallel universe and landed on a planet populated by cavepeople.  But radiations from his body propelled the inhabitants rapidly through social and technological advancement, until they were a space-age culture.  Renamed Sonn, Kal-El grew up, married, sired a son, and became president of his world, until a virus of evil spread terror throughout it.  Sonn’s son found his father at almost 100 years of age, scientifically reverted him to babyhood, placed him back in the refuelled rocket, and sent it back through the space-warp on a course to Earth.  The civilization Kal-El left behind went back to caveman ways, and only two hours had passed in the Earth-One universe since his leaving it.

Comment: It is debatable as to whether the defective time-bubble actually causes Superman to age 10,000 years in this story, or whether it simply causes him to age to about 70 physical years.  It is also undetermined whether or not the future eras portrayed in this story are the true future time-line of Earth-One.
 This story begins on January 12, 1970.
 This story continues in the next issue.
Synopsis: The Time-Trapper covertly induces Superman to use a defective time-bubble to journey to the year 101,970 A.D. and places a time-barrier behind him, preventing him from returning to his proper era.  Superman ages because of a defect in the time-bubble, but is still powerful enough to defeat an energy menace in that era.  He goes further into the future, in which three super-heroes of that time immunize him to Kryptonite, magic, Virus X, or a red sun.

Comments: This story continues in the next issue.
 The futures depicted in this story are not necessarily the canonical futures of Earth-One, as is demonstrated by the altered fates of Jimmy Olsen, Lois Lane, and Perry White after Superman’s “disappearance” in 1970.
Synopsis: Superman travels even further into the future, in which super-powers are outlawed due to a disaster involving three super-heroes of the past.  He is sent to the world of Diodn to live with other aged super-heroes, but leads them in an operation to save the Metropolis of that era.  The mayor of Metropolis vows to get the anti-super-hero law rescinded. Superman continues even further into the future.
