Synopsis for "Up, Up, and Away! (Part I of VIII) - Mortal Men"Edit

  • Synopsis not yet written.



  • This issue establishes that Krypton exploded sixty-eight years ago, in the year 1938. This is the same year that National Periodical Publications published Action Comics #1, the first appearance of Superman. Ever since the Crisis on Infinite Earths, DC Comics has consistently maintained that Krypton was destroyed in 1938.
  • In this issue, Clark uses a special signal watch to contact Supergirl. This is a nod towards two different sets of circumstances popularized during the Silver Age. Superman often relied upon Supergirl as his "secret weapon" for the first few years that she was on Earth. Also, Jimmy Olsen classically used a specially modified signal watch to contact Superman in times of need.
