This cover is an homage to the traditional pose of Atlas lifting the Earth. In the story, Atlas (not Superman) reenacts that pose.

Superman and Green Lantern discuss life while playing fetch with Krypto in space. A giant creature invades Metropolis, and the Science Police try to stop it. It is finally brought down by a new meta-human named Atlas, who demands to see Superman. The Science Police also try to stop him, to no avail. Superman finally notices the ruckus, and arrives to confront Atlas.
