At the height of INFINITE CRISIS, Robin and Superboy team up for an extra-sized story that's not to be missed! Written by Sam Loeb and some of the best writers in comics today, this issue was completed by Sam's artist and writer friends - a veritable Who's Who of modern comics, including Jim Lee, Mike Turner, Geoff Johns, Joss Whedon, Brad Meltzer, Ed McGuinness and many more!
This issue also features a bonus SUPERMAN FOR ALL SEASONS short story by Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale! Don't miss it!
On sale April 19 • 40 pg, FC, $3.99 US

Sam Loeb is Jeph's 17-year-old son who died of cancer last summer.  From Wikipedia: "Tragically, Jeph's son, Sam Loeb, passed away on June 17, 2005 at the age of 17 after a three-year long battle with cancer. Sam wrote an issue of Tales of the Vampires with Jeph's long-term collaborator, Tim Sale. In 2006, Sam's final work will appear in Superman/Batman #26 which was nearly completed before his untimely death. His father will finish the work with the royalty of the comic book industry all of whom were friends of Sam, including Michael Turner, Jim Lee, Joss Whedon, Brad Meltzer, Arthur Adams, Geoff Johns, Allan Heinberg and John Cassaday."

Can anyone speculate on what the stories in "SUPERMAN VS. LEX LUTHOR" will be based on those issue numbers? Some of those I am familar, in particular the ones on this site, but some of the other old ones I am not. Looking up the covers a few are likely not the cover stories. Any help would be appreciated.

There is only one Superman in this issue, and it's Lex's 1st appearance and the 1st Daily Planet, this story has been reprinted many times before.

Has to be the "Luthor Unleashed!" story and maybe the "The New Luthor" 2 page intro. This classic has the death of Ardora and Lex Luthor, Jr. and the destruction Lexor. Luthor and Brainiac get their classic 1980's look aka armor.

Adventure Comics #271
"How Luthor Met Superboy!" Young Lex and Superboy start out as friends, but after Superboy accidentally destroys Luthor's laboratory, Luthor vows revenge.

"The Titanic Thefts!"

The fact they are reprinting "How Luthor Met Superboy" is a step in the right direction. I cross my fingers in the vain hope that Superboy will be back in continuity...

Also, don't forget that Justice League season 1 will be available on DVD by April...

Must have classic Lexor arc or when Luthor killed a robot and Superman defended him.
