Mike W. Barr, Irv Novick and John Calnan are the creative team on Action 537 (Nov. 82), as a new villain takes advantage of the weakened Superman.

Superman attempts to travel into the past, and rejoin with his other half, still trapped in the middle ages.  But Lord Satanis stops this journey, even though the other Superman is in the hands of his enemy Syrene.

Of all the various stories that see Superman turn into two people, I think this one spends the most time with only one version of the split character.  We briefly see the captive other half, with Syrene.  But the story really deals only with the one in the present.

Superman’s weakened condition has made the news, and a new villain, Jackhammer, is excited about that, and eager to face the hero.

And despite being a not very impressive villain, with armored extendy punches, he does beat Superman at the end of the story.

Rozakis, Saviuk and Giella continue Aquaman’s hunt for Mera, as he questions the woman who looks just like her.  Though she claims to be human, Aquaman is so certain that this is his wife that he convinces her to go swimming with him.

She agrees, and to her surprise, discovers that she is able to breathe underwater, and even manifest the same hard water powers that Mera has, but still has no memory of being that person.
