Two men from different worlds, both trying to keep Earth safe, who didn't usually even run in the same circles...
Here's how that meeting happened....
The Specter Of War!
As the soldier leaves, Clark quickly checks it out with his X-Ray vision, seeing it is a request for help from Superman. Clark looks for him, but the soldier had disappeared. Reading the note, Superman goes to stop the "accidental" explosion of a nuclear missile in the United States reserves.
Superman, worried that this soldier who is a master of disguise and is following him around with knowledge of his identity, goes to the JLA Satellite to research history with the Red Tornado, finding the files of the World War II secret agent, the Unknown Soldier, who was a master of disguise (who occasionally gave himself away itching at his disguises around his neck).
After stopping a nuclear war, Superman returns to the base, finding the army had been called in, and they took these villains into custody under the direction of a mysterious soldier who disappeared. Clark Kent goes to the tomb of the Unknown Soldier, to thank him, wondering if he was the original from World War II, as a janitor (with an itchy neck) accepts the thanks.Earth-2 Batman had worked with the Unknown Soldier as well, but something you didn't have to worry about in the Unknown Soldier's own adventures).
But, at least Superman succeeded in stopping a nuclear war (which Superman later had to deal with when he met the Atomic Knights, who lived in a world after the Great Disaster!).
