And Van-Zee and Sylvia became recurring guest stars throughout the Pre-Crisis era. In fact, other Kandorian doubles of Superman's friends were introduced.

" Readers, you must admit that all the clues were given you! "

There's a bit from Raymond Chandler's The Simple Art of Murder that describes this sort of solution: " .. the type that is guaranteed to knock the keenest mind for a loop. Only a halfwit could guess it. "

(Less pointedly, it's inductive instead of deductive.)

Maybe this is where the logic some people use to come up with conclusions based on so little stems from.

Hold the fuck up, Superman discovers the literal Garden of Eden, but doesn't bother to TELL anyone besides Lois Lane?

No, no, Van-Zee, the creepy fanboy stalker, discovered the literal Garden of Eden. That's much less insane.

So much for the flaming sword security.

Even by Silver Age standards, there's just so much utter insanity going on here:

Super-compliments.

Apparently the entire city of Kandor might suffocate if Kal-El fails to check the air hose.

Van-Zee's incredibly creepy obsession with Superman and Lois.

Superman's also creepy Lois Lane room.

Lois's advice of "go stalk someone who looks exactly like me".

Lois getting humiliated trying to fly, because it's not like she's the title character or anything.

My favorite is all the promises on the cover. "We promise not to fool you all those OTHER ways this time!"

The fact that it bother to declare both bride and groom are not robots is pretty insane.

(Almost, but not quite, Twilight Zone level insane.)

This isn't a concern the average joe needs to worry about, but take a wrong turn, and you might find yourself sharing wedding vows with a machine... in the Silver Age.

I love Silver Age DC so much.

And I realize it's because Silver Age DC basically only acknowledged that other heroes existed when it was convenient for the plot, but you'd think somewhere along the line, Clark would have, I dunno, asked his friend and teammate, who specializes in shrinking, the Atom, to help with Kandor.

Why would he want to make it smaller?

He wouldn't. But anybody who specializes in shrinking things might have a pretty good idea on how to undo shrinking too.
