Synopsis
For this reprint, the caption for the final panel of the last page has been modified to read "But Grodd did return...several times...to battle both The Flash and Superman. Will he be back again? Watch future issues of DC Magazines to learn the fantastic answer!" The original caption from Flash #127 read "But is Grodd -- behind heavy bars and in a darkened cell to prevent even the sight of him -- really helpless? Perhaps -- but perhaps not! Our advice is -- keep your eye on future issues of this magazine to play safe!" This modified caption was used for later re-printings as well.
