Synopsis for Superman: "Bus-Ride to Nowhere!"

Superman is warned about a super-powered evolved chameleon from the 420th Century, the Quakerer, who has the power to change his own appearance or that of other beings or objects, and who has come back to the 20th Century to find a weapon that will destroy the humans of the future. The Quakerer is disguised as one of Clark's neighbors, but he does not know who. Clark Kent suspects that the Quakerer lives in his own apartment building but his X-ray scans do not turn up anything. At one point Clark and some of his neighbors board a city bus and they are transported into what looks like the pre-historic past. The passengers suspect that Superman is among them and start calling on him to reveal himself. In the meantime Clark suspects that the Quakerer is also present in the party waiting for Superman to surface. Continued next issue.

Synopsis for The Atom: "Up Pops The Atom"

Ray Palmer is babysitting Jeans Nephew Freddy. They attend a carnival where Freddy buys a box of karamel korn in the hopes of obtaining a prize inside the box. Freddy is delighted to see that the box contained an Atom action figure. A stranger then comes along and snatches the figure from Freddys hands. The stranger turns out to be an international spy who is using action figures to smuggle information out of the country. Ray Palmer springs into action as the Atom and subdues the spies. Upon his return, Ray finds that Freddy is still upset over the loss of his action figure so Ray Palmer changes into the Atom and allows Freddy to play with him not suspecting that the figure is the real thing.
