This is a slightly edited version of part one of "The Three Magic Wishes". The additional final page reprints page 8 of Action Comics 285, February 1962 ("The World's Greatest Heroine") with a new text box at the bottom. This final page is the source of a one pin up "Superman reveals Supergirl" that appeared many times in Australian reprints.
