Superman Issue 154 (1962) Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

   "The Underwater Pranks of Mr. Mxyzptlk" is a way better narrative than the back-up "Krypton's First Superman!" Mainly this is due to the amount of plot-holes the latter has compared to the former. For example the latter has a device for teleporting people in and out of the bottle city of Kandor. This is a major problem due to the fact that no one is being resized. Also there the latter story comes across as too simplistic due to things like the flashback being all about hypnosis. However, the former is problematic due to the gas that makes adults act like children, including the firemen heading to put out a fire.

   My verdict: Overall I can only recommend this issue for fans of the side-strips Ollie and Little Pete and fans of Mr. Mxyzptlk. Otherwise it is not recommended!
