This issue alters Superman's known Post-Crisis history. It is established at the end of this issue that Superman spent a portion of his youth in the 30th century where he met the Legion of Super-Heroes. This intimates that Superman was active as Superboy. In the original Post-Crisis continuity, Clark Kent never adopted a Superboy persona and did not meet the Legion of Super-Heroes until well into adulthood.
Superman's Legion of Super-Heroes gallery includes effigies of the following characters: Blok, Bouncing Boy, Brainiac 5, Chameleon Boy, Cosmic Boy, Dawnstar, Dream Girl, Duo Damsel, Element Lad, Ferro Lad, Invisible Kid (Jacques Foccart), Invisible Kid (Lyle Norg), Karate Kid, Light Lass, Lightning Lad, Matter-Eater Lad, Mon-El, Phantom Girl, Polar Boy, Saturn Girl, Sensor Girl, Shadow Lass, Star Boy, Sun Boy, Timber Wolf, Ultra Boy, White Witch and Wildfire.
The events surrounding Thom's killing of Kenz Nuhor occured in Adventure Comics #342.
