Anyone with a larger collection than mine:  I found this list online.  Can this really be all of the pre-Crisis Parasite stories?

Action Comics #340 (first story) [August 1966]
Action Comics #361 (first story) [March 1968]
Action Comics #555 [May 1984]
DC Comics Presents #55 [March 1983]
Supergirl (second series) #20 [June 1984]
Superman (first series) #299 [May 1976]
Superman (first series) #369 [March 1982]
World's Finest Comics (first series) #247 (first story) [October/November 1977]
World's Finest Comics (first series) #270 (first story) [August 1981]

The Parasite also appeared in:

Superman #286 (April 1975)
Superman #304 (October 1976)
World's Finest Comics #246 (August-September 1977)
Superman #319 (January 1978)
Superman #320 (February 1978)
Superman #321 (March 1978)
Superman #322 (April 1978)
Superman #331 (January 1979)
Action Comics #578 (April 1986)

That is, apparently, the complete list of his appearances in your list and this one.

Off the top of my head, I know Parasite also appeared in Superman vs. Spider-Man 2, the second tabloid-size crossover book (with art by John Buscema).

Probably elsewhere, too.

Thanks folks.  I first found him as a kid in the Spider-Man team-up --had no idea who he was.  Why not Luthor or Brainiac as a villain?  I thought.

Yeah ... to tell the truth, I would've preferred a team like Brainiac and Doctor Doom over the Parasite. I've always considered Brainiac to be Supes' greatest foe next to Luthor.

I really liked the original version of the character.  The newer version turns me off.  I wish they would go back to the first version.

I feel it is my responsibility here to say: "You've obviously come to the right place!" Cheesy

I think they even changed his alter-ego name (although the new name has 2 Ls).
