Happy National Inventors' Day

So today just happens to be National Inventors' Day, where we are called upon as a nation to recognize the enormous contributions inventors make to the nation and the world. What better way to celebrate that day here at the 101 than to reprint the panel where Superman gets stranded back in time and has to enlist the help of genius inventor Thomas Alva Edison to get back home.

So it turns out, to my surprise, that Superman has never done that! That right there seems like a plot tailor made for the Silver Age. Oh well.

Here's a consolation panel of Superman testing out one of his own inventions...the Zone-Ophone!

Oh, hey Superman! You may want to let Mon-El know that there are three Phantom Zone criminals sneaking up behind him.
