Synopsis for "The Super-Dog from Krypton"

This story is reprinted from Adventure Comics #210.

When a white dog in Smallville exhibits super-powers, Superboy investigates and finds a Kryptonian rocket ship in which the dog came to Earth. He learns that the dog is Krypto, his own pet from babyhood, and that Jor-El sent him into space in an experimental rocket that was knocked off-course by a meteor. Superboy has a good time romping with Krypto, but he causes problems with his tasks and his secret identity. The Superdog eventually returns to exploring space, and though Superboy is glad to be free of trouble, he is sorrowful that his dog is gone again.

Synopsis for "The Phantom Superboy"

This story is reprinted from Adventure Comics #283.

A cache of Kryptonian weapons, including a Phantom Zone Projector, falls to Earth. Superboy learns of the Phantom Zone's existence and how Kryptonian criminals were sent into it by a mental playback device in a helmet from the weapons cache. A lizard accidentally triggers the black button on the projector, sending Superboy into the Phantom Zone. Fortunately, the Boy of Steel manages to telekinetically write a message to Jonathan Kent on one of the electric typewriters Jonathan has started selling in the Kent General Store, which has been left plugged in for demonstration purposes. Jonathan finds the projector and presses the white button, releasing Superboy from the Zone.

Synopsis for "The Death of Ma and Pa Kent"

This story is reprinted from Superman #161.

On a trip to visit Jonathan and Martha Kent's graves in Smallville, Superman remembers their last days.

Superman recalls how, when he was Superboy, he took his parents on a time-travel trip to the year 1717 to look for Blackbeard's treasure. After they returned to the 20th century, Ma and Pa got very sick. The doctor told Clark that it was "the fever plague", a disease from the past. Superboy researched a cure, but it failed. He tried projecting them into the Phantom Zone (as he had earlier done to save Mon-El), but that failed as well. Lana Lang (who had worked as a nurse's aide) tried to help them, and even a young Lex Luthor tried to cure them in return for a possible release from prison. But despite these efforts, they died. Superboy considered giving up his superhero career as a result, but then decided that his parents would want him to be a hero.
