Synopsis for "The Kents' First Super-Son!"

Superboy receives a distress call from Planet Nyza. Someone has stolen their Oxium statue. When he catches the culprit, Superboy is forced to let him go or face exposure of his secret identity of Clark Kent. The villain Mighto claims to have been raised by the Kent Family before Superboy had come to Earth.

Returning to the Kent Farm, Superboy learns that Jonathan and Martha Kent had adopted a super-powered son, Mighto, before him. But Mighto turned out to be a super-villain from the planet Ulgar, who hypnotized the Kents to forget his existence, and erased all traces of his stay on Earth. Now Mighto has returned, to complete his parents work on "Experiment X".

Synopsis for "The Mystery of Sorcery Boy!"

To discover why two coins from 1680 found in Kent Family heirlooms bear Superboy's image, the Boy of Steel goes back to that time, is adopted by Jonas Kent and his wife Maria, and encounters the Bald-Pate Highwayman.

Superboy is called "Sorcery Boy", and discovers that Bald-Pate is actually Judge Grimm - a look-alike for Lex Luthor. Too late, Superboy learns that he is in the town of Salem. To cover up his own crimes, Judge Grimm has Superboy found guilty of witchcraft and "executes" him with two silver musketballs - with Superboy's image and the date on them.

The balls flatten against Superboy's invulnerable chest, and are carried away by Jonas Kent as a reminder; eventually making it into the hands of Jonathan Kent.

Notes

Bald-Pate, Highwayman. 17th Century Lex Luthor

  • Jonas and Maria Kent "adopt" Kal-El when finding out he is an orphan, just as Jonathan and Martha did.

Trivia

  • The character "Bald-Pate" is meant to be the 17th Century analogue of Lex Luthor. Also known as "Judge Grimm", Bald-Pate accuses Superboy of witchcraft resulting in hair loss, when Pate's wig falls off. A "Bald-Pate" is a term used to describe both a white-headed bird, and a bald man.
