ACTION COMICS (1938) (#0-600, 643-904) (DC) #500 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Action Comics (1938) #500
"The Life Story of Superman" is written by Martin Pasko and drawn by Curt Swan and Frank Chiaramonte. The origin and history of Superman is recounted in this comic book history landmark: the first comic to reach its 500th issue. Metropolis is opening its new museum devoted to its local champion, the Man of Steel, Superman. Philanthropist and businessman A.J. Angrim has financed the project and is overjoyed when Superman agrees to conduct the first tour of the museum.

Being careful to leave out any information that might indicate his secret identity, Superman recounts his earliest memories first as an infant on Krypton (as supplied by Kryptonian memory devices), then as Superboy, the protector of Smallville; and finally as the world's premier super-hero. However, even as the Man of Tomorrow strolls down memory lane, Lex Luthor is plotting behind the scenes to make sure he disappears forever!
