 +  * Landing in a strange valley when his plane explodes, archeologist and explorer **[[Cliff Battles]]** saves the life of an Indian elder named Zantec, only to be exiled because his plane crashed and destroyed a sacred place. Battles is sent to choose between two dangerous paths out of the valley, and Zantec gives him a golden belt with a jaguar emblem that will give him the ability to take both paths at once as long as he uses it before sundown. Reaching the fork between two trails, Battles uses the belt by facing west and covering the jaguar'​s eyes, which splits him into two identical copies of himself, one glowing red and the other blue. Discovering he has the ability to recall memories of his other self, Battles manages to survive various perils in both bodies until sundown, when they rejoin just in time to avoid certain death while still split in two, and exit the valley as one man.

   * Superboy discovers that his real parents, Jor-El and Lara, survived the destruction of Krypton through the help of a Kryptonian scientist called Dr. Krylo, who preserved them in suspended animation in a space capsule that has been in outer space since Krypton'​s destruction. Unfortunately,​ Superboy also learns that they cannot be revived without killing them, as they have severe anti-kryptonite poisoning, so he places them back into space once more. Later, Jonathan Kent uses Superboy'​s memory helmet to erase his memories of these events, and Superboy/​Superman forgets for the next 21 years. //Note: This story is set specifically 15 years after Krypton'​s destruction,​ placing it out of sequence with other stories in this series.// ["​Superboy'​s Darkest Secret,"​ Superboy #158 (July, 1969); "​[[http://​www.5earths.info/​earth-1/​superman-e1-1988-03-01/​|Superman:​ The Unkindest Cut]]"​]   * Superboy discovers that his real parents, Jor-El and Lara, survived the destruction of Krypton through the help of a Kryptonian scientist called Dr. Krylo, who preserved them in suspended animation in a space capsule that has been in outer space since Krypton'​s destruction.

 +  * At an archeological dig in a remote area of Mexico, Cliff Battles discovers a stone Indian tablet that promises to reveal the location of ancient relics including a legendary head-band that supposedly gives its wearer fantastic powers. Before he can bring it to a museum to be translated, Battles is ambushed by bandits. Escaping from them, Battles uses Zantec'​s golden belt to split himself into two. One of his bodies acts as a decoy to draw the bandits away while the other takes the tablet to the museum. Unfortunately,​ the decoy is captured by the bandit leader El Grando, and the one with the tablet is ambushed outside the museum by bandits who steal the tablet. El Grando has the tablet translated and leaves to dig up the relics, while one Battles saves his other body. Reaching the dig site in a helicopter, the two Battles spot El Grando wearing the legendary head-band, which gives him the ability to emit blasts from his eyes. Battles'​ two bodies team up to defeat El Grando and destroy the head-band, rejoining just in time before sundown. //Note: Despite the title of this story, Cliff Battles is never actually referred to as Split Man. // ["The Split Man," Strange Adventures #203 (August, 1967)]
