Synopsis:
The Maid of Might decides her cousin Superman should get married. So she searches the past, the future and distant space to find the right mate for the Man of Might!

Notes:
The Legionnaires in this story appear as adult versions of themselves. These appear to be the "real", adult versions of themselves—not the versions that occasionally cropped up in "imaginary" stories.
