Synopsis for "Up, Up, and Away! (Part I of VIII) - Mortal Men"Edit
- Synopsis not yet written.
- This issue is reprinted in the Superman: Up, Up, and Away! trade paperback.
- This issue is part of the One Year Later event, which follows the Infinite Crisis limited series, and the 52 maxi-series.
- This is the first appearance of K. Russell Abernathy, the new Kryptonite Man. The original Kryptonie Man first appeared in Superman (Volume 1) #299.
- Mahjoub the pretzel vendor appears next in Action Comics #840.
- Superman appears as Clark Kent only in this issue. He lost his powers from red solar radiation in Infinite Crisis #7.
- 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.
- The title for this story arc, Up, Up, and Away! was a quote often preferred forth by the Man of Steel just before taking flight. It was first used in the 1940 Adventures of Superman radio dramatization.
