Superman Of The Future
Well, with Action Comics #256 (September, 1959) by Otto Binder, Curt Swan and Stan Kaye (the latter two also drew the cover), he became "The Superman Of The Future!".
Superman was helping a Professor Wright test a device to travel to the future, but it wasn't our Superman who came back, but instead an Ultra-Superman from the future! This Superman seemed to possess additional powers like mental projections, and showed three of four disasters he had to prevent to change the future. The fourth was horrible, he dare not show it.
An awful lot of work to find the bad guys, but anything to save the future....and this tale has been reprinted, along with a few other transformations in Superman Annual #3 of 1961!
