Feature bannered as "The Super Sons of Superman and Batman" on splash page. The story also has three separate chapter titles: Part 1 - Trio of Fear; Part 2 - He Whom Evil Fights; Part 3 - The Epitaph That Saved a Superman. The entire Super Sons of Superman and Batman series is explained away in World's Finest Comics (DC, 1941 series) #263, though there is an additional Super Sons story later in Elseworlds 80-Page Giant (DC, 1999 series) #1.
