I remember enjoying the concept of "imaginary" stories in DC comics as a kid (like, just what were the regular stories?). The first one, with Captain Marvel and a (for the 1940's) graphic look at what the effects of a nuclear war might be, is a league apart from the rest, which mostly deal with outlandish 'what-if's" in the lives of Superman and friends. Many of them deal with marriage; at the time, DC was too timid about altering the lives of their icons to touch the subject in a "real" way. Ths, we have Superman marrying Lois Lane, Lana Lang, and Lori Lemaris (all in the same three-part story), Jimmy Olsen marrying Supergirl, and Lana Lang nearly marrying Lex Luthor. Plot illogicalities abound here, even more than normal for the times. Still, the stories were a hoot then, and a nice bit of nostalgia now. ( )
