Synopsis for Atom: "Lockup in the Lethal Lightbulb"

This story is reprinted from The Atom #8.

Dr. Light manages to break out of prison using a specially treated light bulb to escape into the sidereal world. The warden of the prison asks Ray Palmer to use his scientific knowledge to figure out how Dr. Light managed to escape. Ray does so, recreating the experiment with the trace chemicals still left in the bulb. Ray creates another, smaller doorway into the sidereal realm big enough for the Atom to get through.

There, he tracks Dr. Light to his hideout and is easily captured. Dr. Light puts solder into his size changing device's control and traps the Atom in a light bulb which will eventually destroy him while he goes back to Earth's dimension to cause havoc so that he can get revenge against the Justice League of America.

The Atom uses the light bulb's own filament to reheat the solder in his controls and use his size changing abilities to get free. Returning to Earth's dimension, the Atom uses the element of surprise to deactivate Dr. Light's light weapons, defeat him, and turns him back over to the authorities.

Later when the Atom meets with the Justice League of America, he begins to tell them of his battle against Dr. Light.

This story is reprinted from Superman #97.

Clark Kent investigates rumors of a possible breakout at Metropolis Jail, and overhears a crook claiming he will soon collect a million dollars because of something Superboy did on his last day in Smallville, when he is released on the next day. Superman reviews memories of his last days in Smallville, from his graduation from high school through his farewell to Lana Lang through Smallville's letting-go ceremony for him. Finally, he deduces that the prisoner is referring to bars of gold which have been painted with lead and disguised as cell doors on the new prison.

Synopsis for Hourman: "Dr. Togg's Gombezis"

This story is reprinted from Adventure Comics #57.

A series of crimes are carried out by a pack of monstrous chimerical beasts, called "Gombezi," a genetically engineered race of talking winged dogs, created and controlled by Dr. Rocco Togg, from his secret laboratory on Wide Island, off the New England coast. The gombezis also have a thick slippery hide, making them immune to some projectiles and difficult to hold on to, and police are stymied. Hourman and the Minute Men tackle the case.

Hourman and the boys catch all the creatures, and Hourman improvises an explosive from Togg's own lab materials, which destroys the lab and Togg’s creations.

Synopsis for Superman: "The Amazing Story of Superman-Red and Superman-Blue"

This story is reprinted from Superman #162.

Superman is scolded by the Kandorians for failing to live up to his goals to enlarge Kandor, cure Kryptonite, and end crime on Earth. Shamed, he uses a machine he has devised, which is powered by the various forms of Kryptonite, in order to increase his intellect a hundredfold in order to complete these tasks. The process succeeds, but it also splits him into two near-identical beings: Superman-Red and Superman-Blue.

Together, these two Supermen recreate Brainiac’s enlarging ray to restore Kandor to its proper size and place it on a New Krypton, which they have created from the remains of the old planet. This, incidentally, removes every bit of kryptonite from the Universe since it all now constitutes the restored Krypton and is rendered harmless. Superman-Red and Superman-Blue next create an anti-evil ray that ends all villainous tendencies on Earth. Thus, a reformed Lex Luthor develops a panacea that cures all physical ailments and defects, which transforms Earth into a paradise. Retiring, Superman-Red marries Lois Lane and moves with her to New Krypton, and Superman-Blue weds Lana Lang and remains on Earth where he devotes his life to science. He also assigns his Superman Robots with the task of dealing with any future natural disasters.
