Synopsis for Legion of Super-Heroes: "The Eight Impossible Missions"

After rejecting another couple of would-be Legionaries, the Legion begins to consider who will be their next leader. Instead of allowing the Legion's computers to compute and select the best possible leader, the Legion decide to let Proty II create a riddle for them to solve, the first Legion member to figure it out the answer would be awarded with leadership.

To start things off, Proty II turns himself into a "Bizarro" Proty complete with sign with his name spelled backwards. Proty would then send select Legion members on various missions that would help solve the riddle. Even with the addition of Superboy's 20th Century friends Pete Ross and Jimmy Olsen, the group are unable to fathom the answer to the riddle.

Finally, Saturn Girl realizes that the answer to the riddle is "Superboy", as the first letter in the code name or last name of each person involved in the riddle spell Superboy's name. The purpose to this riddle being that it's the anniversary of Superboy's induction into the Legion. With the riddle solved, Saturn Girl retains her leadership in the Legion of Super-Heroes.

Synopsis for Superboy: "How Krypto Made History!"

This story is reprinted from Superboy #75.

In search of ancient dinosaur bones that actually taste good, Krypto travels back in time, inadvertently affecting Babe Ruth's 60th homer, George Washington crossing the Delaware, Walter the Dutch boy plugging the leak in the dike, Robin Hood being attacked, and the future King Arthur pulling the sword from the stone. But when he gets to the era of the dinosaurs, Superboy arrives and pulls him away before he can bite a fresh bone. The Boy of Steel brings his dog to a first-anniversary celebration for him in Smallville. An attempt to get Krypto a frozen mammoth bone doesn't work out, so Krypto has to settle for dog biscuits.
