Synopsis for Superman & Batman: "Final Secret of the Super-Sons"

Superman, Jr. and Batman, Jr. discover that their whole existence is a lie and they are actually only computer simulations created on Superman's Super-Computer in his Fortress of Solitude. The Super-Sons find a way out of the computer system via the Fortress' disintegration pit into the real world, where radiations from their bodies begin to endanger the entire planet. Superman and Batman are forced to confront the young and confused computer simulations and take them back to the Fortress of Solitude, where the Super-Sons are forced into the disintegration pit from where they came in order to save Earth. Although this is the best course of action, Superman and Batman are truly sad for having to destroy their own creations.

Green Arrow takes down the third crooked generation of a family in Hell’s Acre of Star City, inspiring him (in his Oliver Queen identity) to write a demand that the neighborhood be upgraded. Wealthy magnate Matthew L. Durkin astonishes all by unveiling a project to do just that. But GA later proves that Durkin has dealings with local mobsters, who dumped corpses of murder victims in a plot of land in Hell’s Acre that Durkin’s new project is scheduled to cover in concrete. Green Arrow exposes Durkin and the scandal and sees him sent to prison for life. But the reclamation project goes on, funded by private contributions.

Notes

  • "Final Secret of the Super-Sons" is the last story written by Dennis O'Neil in World's Finest. He moved on to work on Marvel Comics as an editor.

Trivia

  • When Superman and Batman programmed Superman Jr. and Batman Jr. into the Fortress of Solitude's Super-Computer, they didn't give the Super-Sons any mothers as it wasn't important to the simulation. This would probably explain why the Super-Sons' mothers are never seen fully — and never referred to by name either — during their brief appearances in the series' run.
