Synopsis for "The Race to Overtake the Past"

Using viewers which capture light-images radiated ages ago from Krypton, and lip-reading to understand what their ancestors are saying, Superman and Supergirl learn the histories of Kil-Gor and Bur-El, inventors; Jaf-El, a prophet of Rao, and Tio-El, his brother, who were spared with several others from a flood which devastated ancient Krypton; and the first of the House of El, Erok-El, who, with the help of a Potion of Strength, defeated barbarian tribes and spread civilization. At that point, they can learn no more. Later, Morgan Edge congratulates Kent on his work, orates at length about what actors will play what members of the El family, and is making plans for a sequel about Hawkman's ancestors. Clark Kent chooses this moment to make a strategic exit.
