Synopsis for "Superman in Kandor"

A Kandorian scientist, Than-Ol, convinces the people of the bottle city of Kandor that Superman knows how to enlarge Kandor but has refused, and the Man of Steel is declared an enemy of Kandor.

Superman and Jimmy Olsen shrink themselves, enter Kandor, and first assume the secret identities of Nightwing and Flamebird to help them in their quest to prove Superman's innocence, and to show the Kandorians that Than-Ol's enlarging process will make them normal-sized, but will also cause them to be disintegrated.



Notes

  • This issue introduces the Nightwing and Flamebird identities. In this issue, Superman and Jimmy Olsen become Nightwing and Flamebird respectively to confuse the Kandorians who have turned against Superman. Superman's identical relative Van Zee also assumes the Nightwing identity briefly in this issue.
  • Superman would later succeed in enlarging the Kandorians.[1]
