Synopsis
Lightning strikes a nuclear dump and creates a giant prism, while across town... Jimmy answers questions on a quiz show about Jack Frost, Jack and the Beanstalk, and the Pied Piper. The "super-powerful mental force" of 60,000,000 viewers makes the legends come to life from the radioactive prism. Superman must chase off killing frost, overfeed a giant, and rescue entranced cops before the legends gang up with kryptonite. Jimmy conjures a duplicate Superman to the rescue, and shattering the prism banishes the legends.

Synopsis
An accident involving an experiment of Prof. Potter's gives Jimmy fire-breath. When he accidentally burns $1,000 meant for charity, Jimmy tries to use his abilities to raise replacement funds. In doing so, however, he draws the attention of "Hot Shot" Holton, who forces Jimmy to use his fire-breath to commit robberies. But Jimmy uses his fire-breath to signal Superman, and eventually douses his fire with mere water.
