** One Silver Age ''Superman'' story involved Superman finding out that a criminal who was getting out for time served was planning on a nefarious profiting over something Supes did in his last day as Superboy in Smallville, and Superman trying to figure out how to stop him before it's too late. It turned out that it was that the prison said criminal was held in, built by Supes on that day, had its bars made out of gold painted with lead paint (from a job the criminal was responsible for), and the prison was due to be demolished (somehow allowing the criminal to collect the gold and profit then). Superman figured it out when he realized that the stripes on the criminal's outfit, when Supes checked on him with x-ray vision, were not the old striped prison garb, but instead were blank spots from the lead paint blocking his x-ray vision, and he was actually wearing a more recent grey prison jumpsuit (similar in style to Luthor's, above).
