Synopsis

Three teens from the future offer Superboy membership in their super-hero club. But when Superboy fails to complete three simple tasks, the Legionnaires pretend to reject him, until they reveal that the three tasks were merely intitiation pranks which proved he is a good sport.

Notes

Reprint of the first appearance of the Legion. Lightning Lad is called Lightning Boy in this story. There are several other unidentified Legionnaires in the story, including one colored here to look like Brainiac 5. The Legionnaires are not yet in their classic costumes in this story.
