I added all that I knew, so that will be up for others to complete.

I am still working on the Legion entry however, and it is almost done...

as far as TGSB goes.

I would like someone to take over from there and actually go into the Jim Shooter years.

The entry is looking great.  The narrative sweep of some sections is amazing --you can really get a sense of the growth and development of Superboy as a teen through the death of the Kents and on.

I remember at least one other college story from the 70s (a back-up feature or Superman Family tale) in which Clark goes on a geology dig in the American Southwest with a friend from college --can't remember any other details but I will try to "dig" it up.  There is also a reference to a meeting between Clark and Luthor in one of the Maggin books when Clark almost tells his secret to Lex, who is masquerading as someone else in order to take a few courses.  I'm sure there may have been more Bronze-age college stories.

Also the meetings between Superboy and Superman, I belive they have met twice, one was in the Superman in the 70's TPB and the other in DC Comics Presents.

I'm not sure if this is one of those two, but there was a multi-part crossover between Superboy and one of the Superman titles where Superboy's mind came to the future to inhabit Superman's body, while Superman's mind went to the past to inhabit Superboy's body.  They had to work together across the time-stream to get the trouble straightened out.

Oh, this rings a bell. Is that when Pete Ross went crazy?
