EIGHTY-PAGE GIANT (1964) #1 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: 80 Page Giant #1
A hoax, a dream, an imaginary tale! Six super-stories of Superman and his extended family; each lovingly reprinted from their 1950s original runs; makes for 80 pages of excitement as only the Action Ace can deliver. In the first story, "The Revenge of Luthor," Superman encounters himself as Superboy when a freak accident brings the Boy of Steel into the present. Luthor takes advantage of the confusion and capitalizes on the clash between the elder and younger versions of Kal El to whip up a plot to destroy them both.

In "The Old Man of Metropolis," Superman learns what it feels like to be elderly and in the way as Supergirl takes over as Metropolis' protector and the Man of Tomorrow begins feeling like yesterday's news. Then in "Claire Kent, Alias Super-Sister," Superboy learns a hard lesson about equality of the sexes when he becomes a super-girl for a time. Jimmy Olsen struggles with "The Superman Book that Couldn't Be Finished," when the budding novelist spins one fantastic yarn after another about his Super-pal. "Ma and Pa Kent Adopt Supergirl" next when Linda Lee dreams of what it would have been like growing up in Smallville. Finally, a three part story pits Superman versus his evil twin, first as Superbaby, then Superboy and finally as the Man of Steel.
