Synopsis for Superboy: "The Boy with Ultra-Powers!"

This story is reprinted from Superboy #98.

A super-powered young man named Ultra-Boy has arrived in Smallville with his guide Marla Latham, for the purpose of trying to learn the secret identity of Superboy. Mingling in with the youth of Smallville, Ultra-Boy attempts to learn Superboy's secret identity, at first asking Superboy's confidant Pete Ross. This cause Pete to worry about accidentally revealing the fact that he knows Superboy's secret identity.

Meanwhile, both Ultra-Boy and Superboy find out that they are really costumed super-heroes when they both scan each other with their x-ray visions and see their costumes under each other. When Pete is trapped in the Smallville bank's vault, Ultra-Boy and Superboy arrive to save him. However, when Superboy's x-ray vision is unable to peer into the workings of the lead based vault door, Ultra-Boy is able to do so because his vision does not have the same limitation.

With Pete Ross freed, Ultra-Boy reveals to Superboy his purpose for trying to learn Superboy's identity: That he's really an alien from the 30th Century, and that his reward for learning Superboy's identity would be membership in the Legion of Super-Heroes. With his mission a success Ultra-Boy returns to the future with Marla and bids farewell to Superboy and Pete.

Synopsis for Aquaman: "The Explanation"

This story is reprinted from Aquaman #46.

Mera gets Aquaman into an ambulance and rides with him to a hospital. On the way, she reviews what has happened to her recently: she was abducted by exiled Atlantean thieves working hand-in-hand with the crime syndicate. The syndicate had recently gained the services of the now-dead scientist, whose invention allowed them to create artificial whirlpools, and, with Mera's hard-water powers, the criminals could easily loot ships at sea. Mera was told (falsely) by the syndicate boss that Aquaman was also their captive, and would be harmed if she refused to help them. Finally, she was freed from her cell when a thug Aquaman fought against slammed into the release mechanism. She fought past her guards, managed to return to the sea, and found Aquaman, rescuing him with her powers as the whirlpool mechanism in the crooks' headquarters malfunctioned and exploded. In the meantime, Vulko tells Narkran that Atlantis may return to the surface if the quake activity continues, and Narkran is overjoyed, telling the scientist that Narkran shall rule over a surface kingdom. Aquagirl is taken in by rebels who wish to end Narkran's increasingly despotic rule, and Aqualad still battles with the Bugala.

Jim Corrigan investigates a case involving a missing boy, Hamilton Benedict. The Spectre locates the boy who has been possessed by an evil spirit.
