"The 1950s was one of the most offbeat and inventive decades in the history of the Man of Steel, which featured the introductions of some of his greatest foes and most famous plot devices. These Superman tales from the 1950s, collected in this reprint of a classic DC book collection, reflect the optimism and carefree excitement of that era. In this bygone decade, Superman's adventures became more lighthearted and fun as he teamed up with Robin, the Boy Wonder and battled such outrageous foes as Bizarro and the Bride of Bizarro. Also included in this collection are the first appearances of Supergirl, Krypto, and Titano the Super-Ape as well as tales of Superman's Super-Magic Show and Superboy's last day in Smallville"-- Provided by publisher.
