Synopsis for "The Oxnalian Revolution"
Oxnalia invades Numark, so Superman invades Oxnalia. He easily overpowers the Oxnalian military, and destroys all of their vehicles and aircraft.

- World War II on Earth-Two:
- In Earth-Two's version of the months leading up to WWII, the Axis Powers included: Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Dukalia, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Napkan, Nural, Oxnalia, Romania, Toran, Syronia,Twerpany, and others.
- Neutral nations of that same era included: Boravia, Kurtavia, Numark, Portugal, San Monte, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and others.
- After 1941-12, many of these countries drop from the scene.
- Oxnalia and its ruler Razkal are obvious stand-ins for Germany and Adolf Hitler. Since Fletcher Superman could operate in Japan but Earth-Two Superman could not and Perry White is referenced as an editor, "The Oxnalian Revolution" is likely an Earth-Two-A story.
- In the 1st story, Jimmy Olsen's last name is revealed for the first time.
- In the 2nd story, Panama is targeted for attack, for the (at least) 6th time, in a golden age DC comic.

- In the 4th story, Clark Kent tricks the Evolution King into using his own old age pills on himself, causing him to die of old age.
