Synopsis for "The Shape of Fear!"

I-Ching helps Superman supernaturally regain his full powers from the sand-created duplicate, causing him to weaken and to open a portal into another dimension. The now-reinvigorated Superman goes back into action once more, but becomes more of a nuisance than a help when he builds a prison at super-speed in the middle of rush hour traffic to stop a fleeing burglar, among other things. I-Ching tells Superman that the head injury he sustained when he was without his full powers is now made permanent with his powers restored, but Superman doesn't believe him. I-Ching and Diana Prince now go off to find the sand-created duplicate and they discover that he came from the spirit dimension of Quarrm, and that he opened a portal to return to that dimension when he let loose another spirit from that realm. That spirit ends up inhabiting a paper-created monster creature from a Chinese parade, and Superman comes to the rescue of a boy being attacked by the monster when he ends up losing his full powers all over again.

Synopsis for "Superman's Neighbors"

Synopsis for "Superman's Day of Truth!"

This story is reprinted from Superman #176.

Superman and Supergirl win no popularity contests in Metropolis or Midvale when, for one 24-hour period, they tell the unvarnished truth or give their honest opinion whenever asked. When Superman has to testify at a trial, the lawyer for the plaintiff insists on having him write his secret identity's name on a blackboard--which he does, but at such super-speed that the blackboard melts from the friction before anyone can see it. When asked to give the location of his Fortress of Solitude, Superman gives the coordinates for his long-abandoned underwater Fortress. Finally, Supergirl and Superman shrink themselves and go to Kandor, where they and the [Kandorians]] celebrate the Day of Truth. This is a holiday observed in honor of the ancient hero Val-Lor, who spoke up boldly against the Vrang invaders who oppressed Kryptonians, died for his words, and sparked a revolt that liberated Krypton. Later, Superman and Supergirl reveal what they had to do to their friends, and are forgiven.
