Synopsis

After Invisible Kid is elected new Legion leader, the Legion performs at a charity benefit where Sun Boy is hurt and loses his memory. It may not be an accident, but the work of Dr. Regulus, who has taken Legion headquarters. The Legionnaires trace their headquarters to Dr. Regulus, and it takes Sun Boy to bring him down. After Invisible Kid is elected new Legion leader, the Legion performs at a charity benefit where Sun Boy is hurt and loses his memory. But it may not be an accident, but rather the work of Dr. Regulus, who has taken Legion headquarters right out of the ground.

Notes

Inspired by the poem "Ten Little Indians."
