For our Week 24 [Legion Fan Club] Weekly Reader Club, we join Paul Levitz and Keith Giffen again just a little AFTER the Great Darkness Saga, circa mid 1983 publishing dates.
The Legion Club presents: THE RETURN OF FERRO LAD!! (Ain’t he dead?)
Legion of Super-Heroes (1980-) #300 (6/83) Special, super-sized anniversary issue! The Legion of Super-Heroes gathers together to celebrate the anniversary of the team’s founding! However, a familiar face visits: their deceased friend Ferro Lad—who brings with him some disturbing news!
Legion of Super-Heroes (1980-) #301 (7/83) Chameleon Boy returns to Durla with his father to try to regain his lost shape-changing powers.
Legion of Super-Heroes Annual #2 (1980-) (7/83) Wedding issue for Queen Projectra and Karate Kid!! Nothing can go wrong, go wrong, go wrong……
Due to this being watchalong Wednesday week for the Legion Fan Club, we’ll keep things simple this time around:
Questions to ponder and discuss (may contain spoilers):
- Which of the three is your favorite story? Why?
- Which Legionnaires are you glad appear in these issues? Which ones do you wish weren’t on the team? Why?
- Was it a great idea to have Supergirl and Superboy both in the same time period like that? Why or why not?
No bonus round this time, but next week, we take a peek at the Legion just after Flashpoint resolves!
