But a meteor strike forces them down to an asteroid... At home, Ma and Pa Kent will be honored as Superboy's adopted parents at a banquet. Only then do they find the cat hid a note from Superboy explaining the hoax! As Superboy returns the actors home, a fake Clark Kent takes his place at the banquet: a dummy made by Pa as a joke on Martha saves their secret!

Green Arrow agrees to wear a chest monitor to test his physical and mental reactions for vital medical data. But his arrows go wild at odd moments, and crooks get away. Other times he can shoot fine.

The doctor's assistant put lead foil in the monitor and exposed the magnetized gear works by remote control for a cut of the crook's loot.
