Key Facts

Classic story about an atomic bomb that was originally meant to be published in Superman #34 but was delayed due to government intervention resulting from heightened security during World War II

The first page of the comic book depicts Lex Luthor unleashing a weapon of mass destruction on Superman with the following text:

Now It Can Be Told. Due to wartime censorship restrictions on subjects dealing with Atomic experiments (see Time [Magazine], Aug. 20 1945, p. 72 and Newsweek, Aug 20 1945 p. 68), this story was not previously released to the public. You'll understand why as you read about the astounding weapon that Superman's ancient foe, Luthor, turns loose against a city in..."The Battle of the Atoms!"
