I've read in several websites that DC has a little reputation for oft-reprinting the same stories multiple times (e.g. "Must There Be a Superman?"), which somehow prompts the question, "What Superman story has been reprinted 5 times (and some might argue 6) since 2002?"

The answer next Sunday.

The Grand Comics Database lists Action #1 as being reprinted only once since 2002, in 2005's trade paperback "Superman in the Forties", which I own and found really fun.
The story I'm referring to was originally published in the Silver Age, and then reprinted in the Silver Age once or twice, depending on your definition of "the Silver Age".

Actually, the story in Action #1 was also reprinted in a 2007 comic book called "Superman Through the Ages".  (How could I have missed that?!)

I kind of cheated. I worked this out by checking the reprint guide on Mike's Amazing World of DC Comics. And it came as a bit of a surprise. The stories I had in mind didn't check out. But one did... I'll try to disguise the answer, in case people want to figure it out on their own.

My guess is here.

And here I thought it was that "secret revealed" story from Byrne's Superman #2, first published back in the '80s.  Seems like no matter where I turned, that story was being reprinted.  Glad to see that India's choice was the correct answer!
