Synopsis for "The Superman of the Past (Part 1)"
Superman recovers a mind-tape and tape-player helmet from a Kryptonite meteor. When he plays the tape, he learns it was recorded by Jor-El, and recounts an adventure he had when Kal-El was only a baby. He discovered an asteroid-planet, propelled by jets, called Vergo, whose Queen Latoria announced a plan to destroy Krypton. Jor-El was sent to Vergo in a space capsule fired by a cannon. There he gained super-powers, and discovered that Vergo’s sun could only be rekindled by the explosion of a planet whose core was of uranium, such as Krypton's. Latoria confirmed that they had no grudge against the Kryptonians, but that Krypton was doomed anyway. After convincing Latoria not to attack Krypton, and learning they had 50 years left before the death of Vergo, Jor-El returned to Krypton. After listening to the tape, Superman scours the universe with his telescopic vision and finds Vergo, still ruled by Latoria, and in danger of perishing. He creates an artificial planet with a uranium core, propels it into Vergo’s sun, and reignites the star when the planet explodes. Vergo is saved, and Latoria is grateful to the son of Jor-El.
