- Penciller Wayne Boring, of course, was the artist most closely associated with Superman during the 1950s and drew a large number of comics for DC. Hyperion is a Marvel analogue of the Superman character, and the title of this issue, "Crisis on Twin Earths!" is an obvious reference to DC's many Crisis events.
