Fantastic research work, Binarysunrise!  As for what happened to the 1940 World's Fair "Superboy", there's the threads on this very message board:

And I find it absolutely incredible that a "Superman's Girlfriend" costume was marketed as early as 1955 -- three years prior to the Magic Totem Super-Girl (who wore the same red skirt), and fours years before Kara Zor-El's arrival.  You wonder if DC wasn't watching sales of this costume when debating on whether to introduce a Supergirl.  

This ad might make an interesting historical oddity in the "Supergirl Costumes" section:

Huh. You guys were just talking about that.  I guess I should get out of the library more often Smiley  Thanks for the heads up.  Any idea about the whereabouts of supergirl??

An ad from the Superman musical.  I'll only post the research I have with images, unless anyone is interesting in reading the reviews and the complaints, and the sales articles.  From April 1966:

Another hospital story.  Doesn't quite count since he was in his batman outfit, but it seems as if it is just a prelude to an actual Superman injury....
