I hear that Superman created a solar system in an issue of Jimmy Olsen. An alien race was really thankful for this, and named just about everything after Superman thereafter.  :lol:

Anyone have any idea what issue this happened in?

Ooooh!

I don't know the issue where Superman actually DOES this, however, the writers didn't just forget about the fact that Superman created a Solar System.

They go back to the solar system in SUPERMAN'S PAL, JIMMY OLSEN #30 (1958), which I have as a reprint in DC 80 PAGE GIANT NO. 2.

In this story, Superman's Electronic Oracle (possibly an early prototype of his Super-Univac, which can also predict the future?) prophesizes that Superman's son will die. Thus, Superman does everything he can to get out of his 30-day temporary guardianship of Jimmy Olsen, including destroying a present Jimmy gave him.

But it turns out that Superman had it wrong; it wasn't his "son" that died, it was his "sun," the one in his artificial solar system, which had a critical flaw when it was built that left it dead.

Superman goes and replaces it with a young, hot star.

Ah, that's definitely worth looking into too.

Thanks, Julian.
