Synopsis for "The Legion of Super-Traitors!"

After a day of work at Pa Kent's store, Clark is called into action as Superboy, however when attempting to save an air craft from crashing, Superboy suddenly leaves it to crash, forcing Krypto to come to the rescue. Afterward, Superboy suddenly snaps again and is about to throw Krypto into space along the path of a Kryptonite meteor, however he snaps out of it again.

Before Superboy can learn the source of his uncharacteristic behavior, he receives a call from the Legion of Super-Heroes. Going to the designated meeting place, Superboy meets with Cosmic Boy, Saturn Girl, and Lightning Lad who have come to Earth to get Superboy's aid updating their records of which Kryptonian criminals had been banished to the Phantom Zone before Krypton's destruction. As Superboy is showing the Legion, Mon-El suddenly appears and warns Superboy that the Legion plans on betraying him and freeing the Phantom Zone criminals. The Legion members then suddenly blast Superboy with special Kryptonite rings that incapacitate the boy of Steel. It's revealed that the Legion are under the control of the Brain Globes of Rambat, who seek to conquer the Earth, but saw Superboy as their only obstacle.

With Superboy defeated, and not considering the Legion members as a threat, the Brain Globes free the Legion and prepare for their conquest. Realizing that the globes had no effect on Krypto prompt the Legion to travel through time and collect Comet the Super-horse, Streaky the Super-cat, and Beppo the Super-monkey to form the Legion of Super-Pets. With the aid of the Super-Pets, the Legion of Super-Heroes are able to defeat the Brain Globes and force them to abandon their goals of conquest. With the globes defeated, the Super-Pets return to their respective eras and Saturn Girl revives Superboy and informs him that she cannot tell him how they defeated the Brain Globes. She then sends Superboy to destroy the device the Brain Globes intended to use to move the Earth. Afterward, Superboy returns home to inform his family what came over him that day and his plan to clear things up with the authorities as well.

Synopsis for "The Good Deeds of Bizarro-Luthor!"

When Bizarro No. 1 and his family are exiled from Htrae for making something perfect--the "S" symbol on the Bizarros' shirts--he creates a Bizarro-Luthor with the imperfect duplicating ray to help him regain his status. The Bizarro-Luthor is as noble as the real Luthor is evil, so he demands Bizarro do three good deeds before he will help. Grudgingly, Bizarro does the deeds, and Luthor gives him the idea he really needed: mass-produce Bizarro shirts with the "S" symbol backwards. With the terrible fashion misstatement now corrected, the Bizarros welcome their first family back to Htrae, and Luthor is honored with a pie in the face.

Notes


Trivia

  • Saturn Girl refuses to tell Superboy how they defeated the brain globes because Comet, Streaky, and Beppo all came from 20 years in Superboy's future, and any knowledge Superboy may learn of his future (including the existence of Supergirl) would have had dangerous repercussions to the time line. Superboy's subsequent interactions with Supergirl and the Super-Pet's of his future in later stories are explained by the fact that Superboy had been conditioned with a hypnotic suggestion that whenever he returned to his present after visiting the future memories of Supergirl and others in his immediate future would be forgotten until he would return to another point in the future.
