Synopsis for Supergirl: "Supergirl's Big Brother"

This story is reprinted from Action Comics #303.

The Danvers family is astonished when a man who appears to be their long-lost son Jan appears on their doorstep. They had believed Jan Danvers to have died in the Korean War. Unknown to them, the real Jan is dead, and his double is Biff Rigger, another ex-soldier who met Jan in Korea and learned of the $50,000 inheritance money waiting for Jan when he got home. Supergirl reveals her double identity to Rigger and gives him a pill which imparts temporary super-powers to him before learning of his deception, but he threatens to expose her secret identity if she tells her parents about him. Later, though, he saves Supergirl from a Kryptonite meteor which she is exposed to undersea. But his powers fade too soon, he develops a deadly case of the bends, and he dies in Supergirl's arms, asking her not to tell the Danvers of his deception. She complies, giving Biff a hero's burial in Atlantis.

Synopsis for Jimmy Olsen: "The Legend of Greenbeard Olsen"

This story is reprinted from Superman's Pal, Jimmy Olsen #21.

When genealogist Peter Shaw of the Genealogist society stops by the Daily Planet, he shows Jimmy the Olsen family tree and Jimmy learns that he is the descendant of Greenbeard Olsen, a buccaneer from the 1700's. He tells Jimmy that every generation a male descendant of Greenbeard would revert to a similar personality under a full moon. Shaw, wishing to disprove this superstition, asks Jimmy to accompany him on a specially reconstructed pirate ship. Perry White, thinking it would make a great story for the Daily Planet sends Jimmy, Lois Lane and Clark Kent to cover the story. Before going, Jimmy is asked to sign a contract making him liable for any damages done should he "turn pirate."
As it turns out, Jimmy apparently does become "Greenbeard" in personality whenever he puts on his costume, and becomes more and more tyrannical. Making Clark walk the plank (although he is pulled out shortly after a quick brush with sharks) and later locked beneath the ship. With each lapse into his Greenbard persona, Jimmy would eventually return to normal with no recollection of what he had done. Locked up in the hold, Clark is able to go into action secretly as Superman and prevent "Greenbeard" from destroying passing ships with cannon balls.

Eventually, the ship crashes into an iceberg, and despite Superman's secret aid, it still sinks putting Jimmy in the hock for $25,000 for damages done to the ship. Returning to Metropolis, Jimmy soon learns that his ancestor Greenbeard was really a double agent that hunted pirates, and that he had inherited Greenbeard's gold due to the fact that he was the first direct male descendant of Greenbeard. When Shaw tries to collect it for damages when Superman enters the room with a man bearing a striking resemblance to Jimmy. Superman reveals that Shaw orchestrated the whole ordeal in order to swindle Jimmy out of his inheritance and had an impostor pose as Jimmy whenever he was "Greenbeard" and carts Shaw and his men off to prison.
