Synopsis:
Superman Appreciation Day. The children of Miss Kennard's grammar school class have an assignment due. Asked to give their reasons why Superman is worthy of his own day of appreciation, the kids rattle off their opinions--guided mostly by an ongoing "schoolyard argument" between a young Superman fan and a young Batman fan.

When Clark Kent shows up, he decides on a little "show and tell" of his own. He does a little role play exercise, making one of the class a villain holding Metropolis hostage. Then, he has the other kids attempt to find the right way to overcome the foe.

Along the way, a lot of comic fans' usual arguments about the virtues of Superman vs. Batman come to the fore. In the end, a quite young boy of Middle Eastern descent hits upon a perspective of Superman that moves Clark to change into Superman and silence even the class' harshest critic.

Notes:
The book's longest story.

Synopsis:
A re-telling of the first time Superman gave Lois Lane an interview. It's more or less an adaptation of the similar scene from Superman, the movie, along with a dash of the pilot of Lois and Clark, but with enough differences to call it "original"--or at least "respectful".

Notes:
Clear homage to Christopher Reeve in the penultimate panel.

Groups:    Add/remove groups to this story

Synopsis:
Short two-page origin tale of Bizarro. Bizarro tells his tale--very similar to Kal-El's (except for the square planets)--to a listening Lex Luthor who, in the penultimate panel, disputes Bizarro's claims. He claims Bizarro is essentially just a Frakenstein monster, "crudely made on a laboratory table".

Notes:
In the space of a mere two pages, we get something that may one day have greater significance. The dispute between Bizarro's memory and Luthor's "documentation" is more or less a discussion of Bizarro's pre- and post-Crisis origins. It might take something as big as, say, an infinite crisis to reveal who's right.
