Trivia

  • Superman story:
    • Superman projects his voice over Metropolis (One of the earlier uses of his Super Ventriloquism) and after emits a supersonic whistle so high in pitch that humans can't hear it, but strong enough to destroy a tower.
    • One of Luthor's henchmen sees Clark Kent switch to Superman and tells Luthor, information he uses to threaten Superman, but the Kryptonian is able to trick him into believing that Clark Kent and Superman are distinct people through the use of Superspeed and Sonic Beam.
  • Congo Bill: When the location is not defined, it is very probably Africa; Almost falling into a waterfall surrounded by a rainbow, Congo Bill says he doesn't want to die in Technicolor. Technicolor was a coloring process used in old movies, and Congo is referring to that due the rainbow.
