** If one still doubts the strength of the iconic cover art alone cementing the series as a hit, keep in mind that Action Comics #1 was an anthology comic with several different stories, with Supes first adventure getting sandwiched in out of desperation for new material. And for the next 13 issues, the cover didn't feature Superman at all--but the comic was ''still'' selling like hotcakes because people were buying the new issues just to see if more Superman stories were included! The sheer ''idea'' of reading a new Superman story was enough to drive sales of the comics, all on the strong first impression of his debut comic! From #15 and on, they wised up and gave Superman permanent top billing on the covers from then on out, and eventually just dropped the anthology format to make it a standalone Superman book, even though he ended up having his own self-named comic book running alongside it! The rest is history.

* In his first appearance -''Comicbook/ActionComics'' #242-, Franchise/{{Superman}} was unable to beat Comicbook/{{Brainiac}}. Superman threw chunks of planetoid at Brainiac until he ran out of planetoid. The whole time Brainiac just stood still, grinning and letting his deflector shields take the blows.
* The title baddie's androids and machines nearly manage to destroy both Superman and Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} during the ''Brainiac'' story arc.

* In DC Comics Presents issue #29, Silver Age Superman is trying to find ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'', who has just gone missing. He flies so fast than he ''breaks'' the bounds of ''reality'' and is stopped by ''ComicBook/TheSpectre''. Superman tries to fight him but The Spectre completely {{No Sell}}s his power -Silver Age Superman's power!- before teaching Superman a lesson about power and responsibility and help him find Kara. Oh, and ''{{God}}'', -yes, God!- [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-gFnnrVDIjZY/Tp2cgi8yrHI/AAAAAAAAND8/BEZ235eKhcE/s1600/dccp+29-09.jpg talks to Superman]] and calls him "a good and faithful son".

* In DC Comics Presents issue #29, ''Superman'' Volume 1 #338, Comicbook/{{Brainiac}} accidentally hits himself with his shrinking ray, and he pleads with Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} to save him, but [[http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_pScx8BN4h3s/SQcs5LyKRiI/AAAAAAAABds/PkQTfwvrabE/s1600-h/superman+338+-08.jpg Supergirl coolly states that the enlarging ray has not enough energy left to save Superman, Kandor and him, so Brainiac is out of luck]]. Even Superman begs her use the ray to save Brainiac, [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_pScx8BN4h3s/SQcsz6v8owI/AAAAAAAABdk/GD76xYl-w1g/s1600-h/superman+338+-09.jpg and she replies: "Cousin... NO!"]]
