Synopsis for "Future Shock"Edit
- Synopsis not yet written.
- This issue was reprinted in Superman: The Man of Steel Vol. 4.
- This story was originally published out of sequence and is intended to take place between pages 22 and 23 of Superman (Volume 2) #7.
- This issue contains a revised retelling of the origin of Superboy's first team-up with the Legion of Super-Heroes from Adventure Comics #247.
- This is the first time Post-Crisis that the Legion of Super-Heroes have traveled backwards in time to the 20th century.
- There are several flashbacks chronicling Superboy's first meeting with the Legion of Super-Heroes. The continuity of the Time Trapper's pocket dimension is the same as the continuity shown for the Earth-One Superboy and Legion of Super-Heroes. Included in the flashback are Superboy, the Legion of Super-Heroes, the Legion of Super-Villains, the Fatal Five, the Time Trapper, Pete Ross, Lana Lang, Martha Kent and Jonathan Kent (of the pocket universe).
- The Superboy that appears in this issue is actually a chronal variant from the Time Trapper's pocket dimension. He shares nothing in common with either the Pre-Crisis Superboy, or the Superboy of Earth-Prime.
- This issue is dedicated to the memory of Edmond Hamilton, a provincial Superman writer during the Golden Age era who passed away on February 1st, 1977.
- Superman utters a paraphrased version of the classic line, "This looks like a job for Superman!"
- The cover is very similar to the cover of Fantastic Four 249.
