This is yet another first in the diaspora like introduction of the Legion of Super Heroes. Of the many members of the future team, the two with the closest powers to Superman are Ultraman and Mon-El, and it is therefore interesting that the two of them share an equally frivolous entry into comic history. In this case, there is no connection to the Legion at all (rather it would seem that later writers just took the characters as they were no longer being used) and similar to Mon-El here a visitor comes to Smallville with little reason except to see Superboy. The story is weak as usual for this period, and the ending is predictable. This is yet another another famous Legionnaire introduced under strange circumstances.
