Synopsis for "Sidearm, One - Superboy, Zero!"Edit

  • Synopsis not yet written.


  • In October of 1994, all of the existing mainstream DC Comics titles released a special "0" issue to coincide with the Zero Hour crossover event. The purpose of the "0" issue was to reveal a previously unknown aspect of the title character's background. DC Titles under the Vertigo imprint were largely unaffected by Zero Hour and thus, no "0" issue specials were published for them.
  • Superboy appeared last in Zero Hour # 0.
  • The primary events from this issue take place between Superboy # 8 and # 9.
  • Contains a cameo flashback image of Doomsday.
  • Dubbilex makes reference to Krypto. This is the normal, powerless Earth dog once owned by Bibbo Bibowski. The terrestrial Krypto has no connection to the Kryptonian animal of the same name.


  • This is the first meeting between Superboy and Professor Hamilton.
  • The visual design of Sidearm's mechanical arms is reminiscent of two pre-existing comic book characters; one is the Marvel Comics villain, Doctor Octopus, and the other is Morgan Stryker from Top Cow's Cyberforce.
  • Superboy is seen speaking with Ray Garnes about their mutual obsession for the 1992 television drama, Melrose Place. Melrose Place was a spin-off of an equally popular drama entitled Beverly Hills 90210.
