Synopsis for "The Fate of the Future Superman!"
Superboy is drawn across time to the 35th Century to help out Jarl Xanthro, proprietor of a Superman Museum. Since his business is being badly hurt by another Superman Museum, operated by the 35th Century descendant of Lex Luthor, he asks for and receives help in making movies which recreate some of Superboy’s 20th Century deeds. In revenge, Luthor invites Superboy into his museum and attempts to con him, via a fake exhibit, into believing that his 35th Century descendant is really a criminal and has been executed by Kryptonite. (In reality, Superman XXX is a hero.) At first, Superboy is convinced, when he returns to his native era, that the future Luthor has shown him the truth. But a consultation with his friend Lex Luthor leads Superboy to conclude that the future Luthor was hoodwinking him. His conscience is cleared, though his memory of the future fades after a week.

When Jonathan Kent misplaces his gold cufflinks, Superbaby goes into the past in search of gold. He encounters an ancient king, the baby Achilles, and James Marshall (who discovered gold at Sutter’s Mill in California in 1849) and brings a large nugget back to Jonathan. The elder Kent appreciates it, but tells Clark to get rid of it.

Mr. Mxyzptlk legally changes his name to Mxypyxm, a palindrome, which reads the same backwards as forwards. Thus, Superboy is unable to send him back into his own dimension until he pulls an amnesia trick on him that forces “Mxypyxm” to return to the 5th Dimension.
