As is long-established policy here at CMNS, we must give due homage to any large villainous primate. In this case, it's "The Gorilla with X-Ray Eyes!"
I've never understood why X-ray vision would melt anything, but you've gotta believe the evidence of your own eyes. At least, you did if you were a dopey little kid in the 1950's.
This story is especially noteworthy because it features an appearance of Superboy's rarely-used apparent ability to read the minds of gorillas.
Yay, Superboy! You captured him for.... well, for being a gorilla. That makes you kind of a douche, don't you think?
A rare romantic interlude. Check out that loving embrace! "I'm getting weak! How can I keep him from crushing me?" More like, "How can I keep him from crushing my heart?"
Sometimes when they touch, the honesty's too much....
