And if this was a Cary Bates story? Superboy would somehow construct a giant hemorrhoidal pad. Maybe using a bunch of cotton t-shirts and a tanker truck of witch hazel.
I'm just sayin'.
One charming aspect of this story is in the rare moments in which Superboy and Gravity Girl are depicted as equals, doing the same thing at the same time. Besides this panel, there's also the splash page, which depicts both Clark and Lana "disrobing for action" (stop snickering) on either side of a brick wall... much like the classic "Flash of Two Worlds" story which appeared the same year. But the ultimate point of this story is that Gravity Girl is far inferior to Superboy and should just stay at home and make him a goddamn cheeseburger (or sumpin' like that). So these nicer moments are pretty rare.
