Synopsis for "Jor-El's Visit to Earth!"

The juvenile Jor-El is thrown through time and space by a comet's freak effect, ending up in Smallville in Superboy's time. When he learns the newcomer's identity, Superboy is flabbergasted to meet his own father, both after the latter's death but before a period when Jor-El had fathered Kal-El. After several adventures together, Superboy warns Jor-El about the catastrophic fate that awaits Krypton and makes a gift of what he thinks is Red Kryptonite to his future father as he returns to the past. Kal-El had accidentally given young Jor-El a sample of Amnesium, which wiped out any memory of his visit to the future.
