Trivia

  • Terri Cross and her Clark Kent Fan Club immediately recognize Clark when he makes a quick change into his costume and tries to tell them that Clark is ill. However, they believe that Clark is trying to pull a joke on them by "pretending" to be Superman. This proves that nothing except people's disparate subconscious expectations of Clark and Superman are keeping them from noticing the two to be facially and physically identical. This contradicts the later explanation for Clark's secret identity given by Superman #330, which was eventually retconned to be exclusive to the continuity of Earth-Thirty-Two and therefore non-germane to Earth-One. Humorously, the subliminal impressions Clark tries to reinforce in people's minds by his different modes of behavior in and out of costume has the opposite effect as intended on Terri and the Fan Club, as they see Clark as manlier, handsomer, and taller than the Man of Steel, in spite of every aspect of Clark Kent's presentation being designed to make his civilian identity seem weaker, plainer, and shorter. Clark notes the irony of the situation in his thoughts.
