Synopsis

Notes

Includes short retellings of the Legion origin story from Superboy #147 (with the original members erroneously in their current costumes) and the Lighnting Lad/Lightning Lass/Lighting Lord origin. In the fight to subdue him, Lightning Lord's hair is turned white, as it had already appeared in the adult Legion stories. There is no feature logo on this story, as the feature title varied in the first back-up stories after the series moved to Superboy from Adventure Comics.
