Synopsis

When the Daily Planet mounts an autograph contest, Superman helps Johnny Terrill collect signatures from around the globe and across time to give him the confidence to walk again. But Johnny has to compete against a young heir and his crooked bodyguards, who actually want to collect signatures so they can later forge checks. When Lois and the heir discover the bodyguards’ plans, Superman comes to their rescue, and then supplies Johnny with the winning autograph.

Notes

Superman time travels under his own power for the first time.
