Synopsis for Superboy: "The Secret of the Seventh Super-Hero!"

This story is reprinted from Adventure Comics #290.

Tom Tanner, a young trouble maker on the run to escape having to go to reform school ends up in Smallville, and upon discovering that he resembles Clark Kent decides to pose as Clark (who is otherwise busy on his daily activities as Superboy.) This ends up working on Superboy's favor as Lana Lang is once again trying to prove that Clark Kent is Superboy by having one of her classmates cut his hair. Lana is shocked when "Clark's" hair is cut, and "Clark" punches out the prankster.

Meanwhile, Superboy is met by Sun Boy of the Legion of Super-Heroes from the 30th Century. Sun Boy tells Superboy that recently the Legion obtained a super-weapon made by a recently deceased criminal scientist and had it disassembled into seven components, those seven components were then put in lead casings and hidden in different locations in the 20th Century so that no criminal in the 30th Century could reassemble it. Sun Boy goes on to tell Superboy that as part of his Legion initiation was to collect the components and bring them back to the 30th Century because the Legion later realized that the weapon could be used by criminal in the 20th Century as well. Superboy agrees to help Sun Boy collect the parts of the weapon, and with every part in his possession Sun Boy leaves Superboy to return to the future.

However, it turns out that the person who Superboy has been helping is nothing but an impostor and tricked Superboy into helping him. While "Sun Boy" assembles the weapon (A robot that has a ray beam that can turn people evil), Superboy returns home to find Tom Tanner in his place. When Martha unknowingly reveals Superboy's identity to Tom to try and get him to put out a grease fire in the kitchen, Tom reveals his true identity to Martha and threatens to reveal Superboy's identity should she try to ruin his cover. Meanwhile, "Sun Boy" sends the cyclops robot to turn Superboy evil with it's ray. However the robot blasts Tom Tanner instead.

Superboy and Krypto then follow the robot back to the fake Sun Boy and destroy it, before Superboy takes the faux Sun Boy into custody and returns him to the 30th Century. There he reveals him as a fake to all present. Revealing that he determined "Sun Boy" to be a fake when he didn't initiate the Legion hand shake when he first met Superboy. Returning to his own time, Superboy resumes his Clark Kent identity, and learns that Tom -- after recovering from the blast from the robot he received -- has now become good and as a side effect his memories of Clark's true identity were erased. Tom thanks Martha and Clark for steering him back on the straight and narrow and leaves to return to the reform school which he was fleeing from.

Synopsis for Aquaman: "Underworld Reward! Part 1"

This story is reprinted from Aquaman #44.

Aquaman, searching for Mera's abductors on dry land, stumbles onto the aftermath of a gangland killing before accidentally knocking himself out. The triggerman reports to his boss, who believes (mistakenly) that the victim told Aquaman secret information before dying. Thus, the gang-boss puts out a contract with all the members of his syndicate for Aquaman's death. Aquaman revives in the care of the woman into whose apartment he had inadvertently broken, and sends her to the police with the report of the murder. Then he stumbles into the street, where he is soon beset by assassins seeking his life. After a tough battle, Aquaman returns to the seas, intending to resume his quest for Mera again. But he finally opts to clear up the case into which he has stumbled first, and returns to dry land. However, the girl has been seen by a stool pigeon passing Aquaman's note to the police, and she is soon captured and held as bait for Aquaman. And Aqualad, in the realm of the Elfdurans, encounters the Bugala for the first time.

Synopsis for Superboy: "The Legion of Super-Traitors!"

This story is reprinted from Adventure Comics #293.

After a day of work at Pa Kent's store, Clark is called into action as Superboy, however when attempting to save an air craft from crashing, Superboy suddenly leaves it to crash, forcing Krypto to come to the rescue. Afterward, Superboy suddenly snaps again and is about to throw Krypto into space along the path of a Kryptonite meteor, however he snaps out of it again.

Before Superboy can learn the source of his uncharacteristic behavior, he receives a call from the Legion of Super-Heroes. Going to the designated meeting place, Superboy meets with Cosmic Boy, Saturn Girl, and Lightning Lad who have come to Earth to get Superboy's aid updating their records of which Kryptonian criminals had been banished to the Phantom Zone before Krypton's destruction. As Superboy is showing the Legion, Mon-El suddenly appears and warns Superboy that the Legion plans on betraying him and freeing the Phantom Zone criminals. The Legion members then suddenly blast Superboy with special Kryptonite rings that incapacitate the boy of Steel. It's revealed that the Legion are under the control of the Brain Globes of Rambat, who seek to conquer the Earth, but saw Superboy as their only obstacle.

With Superboy defeated, and not considering the Legion members as a threat, the Brain Globes free the Legion and prepare for their conquest. Realizing that the globes had no effect on Krypto prompt the Legion to travel through time and collect Comet the Super-horse, Streaky the Super-cat, and Beppo the Super-monkey to form the Legion of Super-Pets. With the aid of the Super-Pets, the Legion of Super-Heroes are able to defeat the Brain Globes and force them to abandon their goals of conquest. With the globes defeated, the Super-Pets return to their respective eras and Saturn Girl revives Superboy and informs him that she cannot tell him how they defeated the Brain Globes. She then sends Superboy to destroy the device the Brain Globes intended to use to move the Earth. Afterward, Superboy returns home to inform his family what came over him that day and his plan to clear things up with the authorities as well.
