Fred Guardineer cvr/art, Bob Kane art; origin & 1st app. of Three Aces (11/39); 1st time Superman uses his x-ray visionSuperman's powers eventually grew, by the Silver Age, to include super-breath, super-hearing, probably even super-toenail clipping. It's amusing, then, to see how late into his Golden Age run came his first use of X-Ray vision, in this issue, which is capped off by a typically stunning Guardineer dogfight cover. The last non-Superman cover in the series, note that DC was already anxious about losing the attention of new readers attracted by Superman, slapping an iconic Super-image on the upper corner of the logo, as if to say, "No, really, he's in here!" The Superman mythos was slowly but surely building, issue by issue, and this important entry helped create that enduring legend.
