As it turned out, Ilya and his father Alexander Salkind had already been considering returning to Superman since the one-picture option they had given the Cannon group (which resulted in Superman IV) had expired. Using my treatment as a starting point, they commissioned me and Mark Jones [the other story-editor on the Superboy series] to write a full script."
