    I like when Superman is a genius, in addition to being a powerhouse. Seems like whenever they want to taper back his powers for a reboot, his intelligence is the first thing to go. Interesting this laboratory. First and only mention?

      There was a newspaper story in 1939 (reprinted in SUPERMAN #2) that revealed Superman had a spare apartment that he kept “for emergencies.” But there was no indication it was anything that a normal apartment, and other than that, this is the only mention of a special workspace or home base (other than Clark’s apartment, obviously) until the Secret Citadel is introduced in 1942.
