Synopsis for "The Collector of Celebrities"
A “collector of celebrities” forces Superman into an agreement to perform three “impossible” tasks or live in his house as his “property” for a year.
- The character Mister Mxyzptlk was created by Jerry Siegel and Ira Yarbrough and first appeared in Superman #30 with the slightly different name of Mister Mxyztplk (note that the letters p and t are in a different order). The first appearance of the Earth-One Mxyzptlk is open to interpretation as there is no clear dividing line between Superman stories taking place on Earth-Two and those taking place on Earth-One. Comics historian/indexer Lou "Dark Mark" Mougin in his Earth-One Superman Index lists the second story in this issue as the first Earth-One Mxyzptlk appearance, while Who's Who: The Definitive Directory of the DC Universe #15 lists Superman #131.
- The Girl Who Didn't Believe in Superman! is an adaptation of Adventures of Superman episode: Around the World with Superman and was reprinted in Superman #242, Best of DC #25 and Superman in the Fifties.
