Indexer Notes

Boltinoff takes over as editor. The Super-Sons share the billing of the strip in these issues: 216, 221-2, 224, 228, 231, 233, 238, making a final appearance in their own feature in 242. Their existence as computer simulations is referred to in Superman Family, The (DC, 1974 series) #192, and their storyline is brought to a conclusion in World's Finest Comics (DC, 1941 series) #263. The wives of Superman and Batman appear in this story, but their identities are not made clear. A pair of stories featuring an unrelated Superman, Jr. and Batman, Jr. appeared before this story in Action Comics (DC, 1938 series) #391-392. There was also an unrelated pair of imaginary stories in World's Finest Comics #154 and 157 featuring the "Sons of Superman and Batman." Feature bannered as "Superman and Batman" on splash page. (Additional information about the earlier imaginary stories and explanation of their existence in Superman Family from Ted Watson, June 2009.)
