Professor Snelling

From Supermanica
Jump to: navigation, search

A “noted historian” 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 Superman’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: "Superman’s Secret Past!").

This text is contradicted by Action Comics No. 288, which asserts that the Smallville home of Jonathan and Martha Kent, Superman’s foster parents, was bequeathed to Clark Kent and remains in his possession (May 1962: "The Man Who Exposed Superman!").
