For this entry, I'm going to back track on Mattel's chronological release of their toy line by featuring an action figure from their DC Superheroes toy line. Released as part of this toy line, this Superman variation is simply called Kal-El in the packaging. I don't recall seeing this version in the comic books but the closest I could remember is the Hunter/Prey Superman from the Superman/Doomsday: Hunter/Prey mini series. We can also make a case for the Birthright Jor-El version as the inspiration for this figure. More about this figure below.
Mattel's DC Superheroes was notorious for their Superman costume variations and repaints, but despite this notoriety, they managed to come up with great representations of the various Superman costume changes in the 2000s. Chief among them was the post Our World's at War Superman costume which featured Superman sporting a darker red "S" insignia with a black background (in exchange of the yellow one). Unfortunately I don't own that figure. That figure is an awesome figure because it got the right suit colors that is very much faithful to the comic books (unlike the regular Superman). Mattel also released an Emperor Joker Superman in this toy line which features Superman sporting a black suit with silver colors in exchange of the red colors of his costume. Their last repaint was this one, which they simply named as Kal-El. I don't really recall seeing this version in the comic books, though there were instances in the comic books where Superman acted more Kryptonian than human (see Krypton Man). I do have my reasons why I purchased this figure even though this is just a repaint with a new a head sculpt. I'll reveal it a little later. But honestly, the figure looks great. He can actually work well as an Elseworlds Superman in your display.

"Voices of the Dead"
Daily Planet reporters Lois Lane and Clark Kent are in the dining car of the express locomotive The Golden Comet looking for the famous inventor Doctor Walter Roebling of the Electronic Institute. The scientist has perfected a voice machine which he claims can make one hear the Voices of the Dead. However, when Clark and Lois approach Roebling, he and a woman who is possibly his daughter say that he is not the man whom they seek. It's possible that Kent was mistaken about Doctor Roebling being on board The Golden Comet.
Convinced that he and Lois have found Doctor Roebling, Clark believes the scientist didn't wish to speak in front of so many people. He and Lois decide to go to the doctor's cabin. The door is locked, and nobody is responding to the buzzer or knocks. The conductor uses his key to unlock the sleeping compartment. What he, Lois and Clark have discovered shocks them. Nobody is in the room, and the window is open. It seems that Doctor Roebling and his female companion have left the train. Superman must find out how or why. The life of the elderly professor may depend on it.
Meanwhile, Warner Bros. has released two new banner graphics, one featuring Zod, the other Superman... Placed together, they appear to be flying towards one another.
