Default Re: What do you consider the best Superman stories?

My Superman recommendations continued:
Superman in World's Finest Comics Archives volumes 1 and 2.

Action Comics #125 (1948) "The Modern Nostradamus."

Superman #57 (1949) "The Menace of the Machine Men."

Superman in the Fifties which reprints World's Finest Comics #68 (January, 1954) "The Menace From The Stars" which is a loose adaption of the George Reeves Adventures of Superman episode "Panic In The Sky" which aired on December 5th, 1953 and Superman #96 (March, 1955) "The Girl Who Didn't Believe In Superman" which is a loose adaption of the George Reeves Adventures of Superman episode "Around The World With Superman" which aired on March 13th, 1954 and Superman #127 (1959) "Titano the Super-Ape" and Action Comics #151 (1950) "Superman's Super-Magic Show" where Luthor joined forces with the Prankster and Mr. Mxyzptlk in a scheme to make Superman the laughingstock of Metropolis and Action Comics #254 "The Battle with Bizarro" (1959).

Superman #79 (1952) "Citadel of Doom."

Superman #85 (1953) "Luthor--Hero."

Superman #88 (March, 1954) "The Dog Who Loved Superman" which is an adaption of the George Reeves Adventures of Superman episode "The Dog Who Knew Superman" which aired on November 14th, 1953.

Superman #91 (August, 1954) "Great Caesar's Ghost" which is an adaption of the George Reeves Adventures of Superman episode "Great Caesar's Ghost" which aired on May 21st, 1955.

Luthor, Toyman and Prankster team up in Superman #88 "The Terrible Trio" (1954) reprinted in The Greatest Team-Up Stories Ever Told (1990).

Superman #86 "The Fourth Dimension Gazette" (1954).

Action Comics #200 (January, 1955) "Test of a Warrior" which is an adaption of the George Reeves Adventures of Superman episode "Test of a Warrior" which aired on May 28th, 1955.

Luthor's enlarger machine creating a giant ant in Superman #110 "The Defeat of Superman" (1957).

World's Finest #88 (1957) "Superman's and Batman's Greatest Foes" reprinted in "The Greatest Joker Stories Ever Told" (1989).

Superman #129 (1959) "The Girl in Superman's Past" reprinted in Giant Superman Annual #1 (1998) is a beautifully romantic touching story.

Luthor had a hoax of an alien invasion using a giant mechanical green hand in Gotham to con and detract the Gotham police while Luthor's men stole $2,000,000 in platinum in Gotham but Batman figured it out so Luthor went back to Superman's turf in Metropolis in Batman #130 (1960) "The Hand From Nowhere."

The Superman Encyclopedic by Michael Fleisher is a great source of facts, tells a wealth of information about the Golden Age Superman and the Silver Age.

Jimmy Olsen Adventures volumes 1 and 2.

Jack Kirby's Fourth World #20 (1998) "The Gods Themselves."

Legends of the DC Universe #14 (1999) "The American Evolution."

Superman #247 (1971) "Must There Be a Superman?"
