This story is reprinted from Superboy #94.
A year ago, Superboy defeated the tyrant race of Wexr II on their homeworld. Now, the Wexrians have formed a Superboy Revenge Squad, and are scouring the universe to find Superboy's home planet. When they find it, by detecting Superboy's thought patterns with a machine, they will destroy Earth with a powerful weapon. Superboy avoids this fate by hypnotizing himself to forget his Superboy identity for 24 hours, until the Revenge Squad ship leaves Earth's vicinity. In Superboy's absence, Pete Ross impersonates him in Smallville and tricks an unwitting Clark into providing his “super-feats”.

This story is reprinted from Action Comics #313.
The FBI, while processing Lena Thorul's application, requests her to interview several criminals for a paper on criminology. While interviewing Lex Luthor, her ESP abilities make her realize that she is his sister, and he regretfully tells her how she got her powers by contacting a space-brain. Lena runs away in a state of shock, gets amnesia, and eventually winds up in Africa in a zebra-skin costume. Calling herself the Jungle Princess, she uses her mental abilities to defend her animal friends against poachers. A stray shot from a hunter for a circus grazes her head and restores Lena's memory, and she returns to the United States to perform with the animals as a circus trainer. After Supergirl subs for Lena in a performance, Lex Luthor, who has broken jail, gives his sister a rare strain of plant he has developed, whose fumes cause whomever breathes them to forget unpleasant memories. Thus, Lena's memories that she is Luthor's sister are suppressed, and she forgets her "Jungle Princess" identity. Supergirl decides privately to tell the FBI what occurred, so that Lena's application will not be held up.

When outer space is terrorized by a giant space monster dubbed the Super-Moby Dick, the Legion of Super-Heroes are unable to stop the beast. During one attempt that trying to stop the creature, Lightning Lad's own powers reflect back at him but carry a toxic energy from the creature that numbs his arm. While he is convalescent it is determined this arm must be amputated for his safety, and he awakens to find a mechanical limb in its place.
Lightning Lad soon becomes obsessed with the destruction of the creature, and his comrades soon begin to feat that Lightning Lad will violate the Legion's charter against killing to get his revenge on the creature. They soon try everything in their power to stop Lightning Lad from successfully killing the Super-Moby Dick. However, when Superboy is injured stopping Lightning Lad from killing the best, Dr. Lampert explains to Lightning Lad that he is responsible for the Super-Moby Dick. In reality the creature is much smaller and he accidentally grew it in size. Lampert then tells Lightning Lad how to restore the Super-Moby Dick to normal.
Just when the Legion catches up with Lightning Lad to stop him, they soon see that their comrade is not killing the creature but is succeeding in shrinking it down to size. With the threat neutralized, Lightning Lad informs them all of what he was told. Later, when a repentant Lampert apologizes for being responsible for Lightning Lad's condition, another doctor advises them that they are starting a new arm and leg bank, where they hope to create a replacement arm for Lightning Lad.

Synopsis for Teen Titans: "Thousand-and-One Dooms of Mr. Twister"
This story is reprinted from The Brave and the Bold #54.
The townsfolk of Hatton Corners are in the midst of a dispute. The adults of the neighborhood feel that the teen populace are too wild and unruly, whereas the teens feel that the adults are too "un-hip" and incapable of relating to teenage problems. Ironically, the teen youth movement is led by Eddie Corliss, son of the town's mayor. Eddie organizes a club house meeting and invites three famous teen super-heroes to come to Hatton Corners to support their cause. They invite Aqualad, Kid Flash and Robin.
Before the heroes arrive however, a crazed super-villain known as Mister Twister blusters through town riding atop a giant cyclone. Mister Twister attempts to extort the town elders for what he believes are reparations owed to his family going back several generations (which consists of feathers from the extinct Passenger Pigeon). When the town elders are unable to pay Mister Twister, he uses the elemental powers of his magic staff to abduct the town's teenagers and bring them to nearby Goat Island.
Aqualad, Kid Flash and Robin arrive in town, but when they visit the teen clubhouse, they find that it has been razed to the ground. Mayor Corliss tells them about Mister Twister and they agree to do what they can to rescue the missing youths. They find the kids on Goat Island where they are forced to erect a giant twister-shaped tower made from heavy stone blocks.
While Mister Twister is away, Kid Flash uses his super-speed to finish construction on the tower so that the teenagers do not have to carry the burden alone. Aqualad discovers that the underside of Goat Island is perched upon a fragile pinnacle of rock, so he summons a giant whale to push the island off of its natural mooring and move it out to sea.
When Mister Twister returns, he cannot find the island. Infuriated, he returns to Hatton Corners to wreak his revenge against the town. He uses his powers to rain earth, water, and fire down from the sky to create massive floods of dust, water, and fire that threaten to consume the town. Kid Flash spins like a cyclone in an effort to control the flames while Aqualad calls upon the aid of a narwhal to drill a drainage ditch, which diverts the flood into natural underground tributaries. Robin confronts Mister Twister directly and ensnares the villain's magic staff with his Batrope. Without the power of his staff, Mister Twister is powerless. The teens of Hatton Corners are reunited with their parents and everyone agrees that they will do their best to mend their differences.
