Synopsis for "Superman's First Exploit"

This story is reprinted from Superman #106.

Dr. Reese Kearns, once discredited for panicking Metropolis with a meteor "hoax", gets the Daily Planet to run a contest in search of Superman's earliest super-feat. When pressed for the answer, Superman uses his super-memory to recall an incident in which, as baby Kal-El, he briefly emerged from Jor-El's rocket, fought a crystalline insect on a meteor, and then pushed off from the meteor to return to his rocket. The push-off sent the meteor off course and caused it to miss Metropolis, thus invalidating Kearns's claim. With that revelation, which Kearns had suspected, his reputation is repaired.
