Synopsis for "All Star Super Squad"Edit
- Synopsis not yet written.
- This issue is reprinted in DC Special Blue Ribbon Digest #3, Justice Society Vol. 1 and Showcase Presents: All-Star Comics.
- This issue continues the numbering sequence of the original All-Star Comics, ignoring the 1951 title change to All-Star Western.
- Advance copies of this issue were mailed to select individuals. As such, this issue includes a letters column with letters from notable comic enthusiests Roy Thomas and Jerry Bails.
- First appearance of Power Girl. She is introduced as Superman's cousin and has been operating in secret for quite some time. Power Girl is an analog to the Earth-One super-hero Supergirl. It is revealed in a footnote that Power Girl has been operating in secret for several years, considerably longer than Supergirl did on Earth-One. Her full origin was revealed two years later in Showcase #97.
- Power Girl coins the name "Super Squad" in this issue. The Super Squad is not so much a separate team from the JSA, but rather it represents the newest members to the roster beginning with Power Girl and including Robin and the Star-Spangled Kid in subsequent issues.
- The Star-Spangled Kid arrived in the present day after a time-traveling excursion as revealed in Justice League of America #102.
- There is a fan letter from Roy Thomas who at the time "was a prominent fan in the early 60s" of the original JSA/All-Star Comics series. Mr. Thomas would later transition from dedicated fan to a DC Writer and Editor of several JSA titles.
- Issue includes an advertisement for Hostess Twinkies featuring Batman, Robin and Commissioner Gordon entitled "The Captive Commissioner".
- Brain Wave, as presented in this issue, is physically different from his last appearance in All-Star Comics #37. His costume is similar to that which is later worn by his son Brain Wave, Jr.
