Comic Book Urban Legends Addendum

Comic Book Urban Legends Addendum

Remember the one about how, for a time, it was actually part of Superman “canon” that Superman was hit by a duplicator ray on the way to Earth, creating a twin of baby Kal-El that was raised to be both a Super-Brat, then a Super-Bully and finally, a Super-Menace?

Well, reader John McDonagh let me know that even after the Superman books officially began doing “imaginary stories,” that story was still considered canon! In 1962’s Superboy #100, it had a pin-up detailing all of the routes taken by the various folks from Krytpon who ended up on Earth, and in it, it mentions the duplication ray.

It was not until 1964 that the story was officially determined to be an “imaginary” one.

Thanks for the extra info, John!
