Synopsis for "Costume, Costume -- Who's Got the Costume?"
Superman loses his costume in a battle with “Father Time” and must travel 1,000 years into the future to fight for it with a caveman who has claimed it and who has all Superman’s powers.
- Reprinted in Superman: Past and Future and Showcase Presents: The Great Disaster Featuring the Atomic Knights.
- Although the natural disaster version of Kamandi's world is expressly stated as being an alternate future timeline of Earth-One, it would eventually be stated that two very similar versions of Kamandi live on parallel Earths which are sometimes collectively referred to as "Earth-AD" and formally called "Earth-295" (natural disaster) and Earth-86 (nuclear war).
- Kirby's Kamandi had always referred to his world as "Earth After Disaster", but this seems to have referred merely to the fact that it took place after the Great Disaster -- it was not originally the name of a parallel Earth.
- According to the Green Lantern from the 30th century (Xenophobe) the Time Trapper engaged the Green Lantern Corp of that time and used their power ring's energy to wipe out all futures of Earth-One except the Kamandi future.
- The Crisis on Infinite Earths: The Compendium states that Earth-295 was "revealed as a distinct parallel world in Superman (first series) #295" (sic) which is in conflict with Xenophobe's statement.
