LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES #303 September 1983 Unashamedly, I am a huge fan of the Legion of Super-Heroes. The period that I first fell in love with the Legion was about the same time a lot of people did, the period around 1983-1984 when Legion of Super-Heroes became DC's second best-selling title, right behind New Teen Titans.
