A â€œnoted historianâ€ and newly installed resident of Smallville and the author of a forthcoming book called The Life and Times of Superman, who having unwittingly purchased for his own the very home where Superman resided as a youngster, is prevented from uncovering a series of damaging clues to Supermanâ€™s secret identity still remaining in the house, such as the cast-iron teddy bear Superman played with as an infant, only by the quick-witted and surreptitious intervention of Superman (S No. 90/2, Jul 1954: "Supermanâ€™s Secret Past!").
This text is contradicted by Action Comics No. 288, which asserts that the Smallville home of Jonathan and Martha Kent, Supermanâ€™s foster parents, was bequeathed to Clark Kent and remains in his possession (May 1962: "The Man Who Exposed Superman!").
