Synopsis After over-exerting himself, Superman falls into a coma and awakens 1,000 years in the future.

As thanks, they use an experimental time travel machine to send him back to his own day, where he awakens from his coma.

Notes Time-travel story. The story makes no logical sense, as Superman awakens from his coma after a week AND sleeps for a thousand years. Inks credit from Past and Future reprinting.
