Part 5 of an all-new 21-part series - Click here for part one!
SEPTEMBER 1960
Another installment of our very, very long series examining DC's "CSA" ads of the Sixties. We open with the son of Bizarro, exploring what it's like to be the child of an outcast. Lois Lane's Super Daughter examines the issue for the other side — what's it like to be the child of a celebrity? Plus more rivalries between Supes and Hercules, and a rival Supergirl (a riddle you'll never solve, by the way).

OCTOBER 1960
No images in this ad featuring young love for Supergirl (losing her virginity?), and a flood of super rivals for her super-cousin, Kal, aka Superman. Oh and by the way, I should mention that you will NEVER guess the mystery of the tiny Superman.

Also from October 1960, an ad showcasing rivalries of every kind: individual rivalries that resemble contests in sports such as archery, plus planet-wide rivalries that resemble the olympics. And I repeat-- you will NEVER guess the mystery of the tiny Superman!

NOVEMBER 1960
The stars in the background are joind by a constellation of "DC" symbols of varying sizes.

DECEMBER 1960
A favorite Weisinger them makes it debut in the ad below, in the form of FAT Jimmy Olsen, a story addressing teenage weight problems. And, what CSA ad would be complete without a couple of good, old-fashioned RIVALRIES, this time between Superboy, Mighty Boy, and Supergirl. Plus, Congorilla in "Janu of The Apes!"

BELOW: The CSA format applied to Mighty Mouse.
