* StandAloneEpisode: The original series did not have much continuity between issues. Of course, comics were different back then, and the StoryArc and {{Decompressed Comic}}s were much rarer. There were exceptions, though, such as a three-issue story that introduced Mongul and Warworld (co-starring ComicBook/MartianManhunter, ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} and ComicBook/TheSpectre); a two-part story involving Superman's SecretKeeper Pete Ross, the ComicBook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}}, and... Superboy? (the original one, back when he was Clark's past self in the future); and a two-parter where Mxyzptlk and Mr. Mind teamed up to torment Superman and [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]].

[[caption-width-right:300:Yes, Superman, there IS a Santa Claus!]]

''DC Comics Presents'' was a Creator/DCComics comic book starring Franchise/{{Superman}} and a series of guest stars in [[CrossOver team-up stories]] during UsefulNotes/{{the Bronze Age of Comic Books}}, surviving the mass cancellation of titles known as the "DCImplosion". The series lasted for 97 issues, a respectable run by modern standards, from 1978 to 1986. It was canceled during DC's first [[RetCon mass relaunch]] (after the ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths) but the ''Action Comics'' series then became the new Superman teamup book for a while.
