Reviews of Old Comics: Legion of Super-Heroes #311

LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES #311 May  1984 There's not been a return to my series reviewing the Legion comics as I started reading them for over a month, primarily because of our October Halloween celebration, although I was sorely tempted to do a review of the Ghost of Ferro Lad story from an old Adventure Comics, but I'm always hesitant to review a comic that old, but when Comixology exists, I probably shouldn't be. Nevertheless, now that the Omen/Prophet storyline is done, let's continue with the one Legionnaire that stayed behind, Brainiac 5. SYNOPSIS: Duo Damsel and Bouncing Boy are giving Legion fan Flynt Brojj a tour of Legion Headquarters when it falls apart, demolished from inside.

Reviews of Old Comics: Legion of Super-Heroes #304

LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES #304 October 1983 This issue was my first regular issue of the Legion that I bought, so it's stuck with me. It seems really odd since there's very little actual focus on the Legion. SYNOPSIS: Bouncing Boy and Duo Damsel resume their teaching at the Legion Academy, and notify the students that with the resignations of Karate Kid and Queen Projectra following their wedding, the time is ripe for the Legion to recruit new members. The stusents are eager, although some of them don't qualify under the "no duplicate powers" clause the Legion has, specifically Shadow Kid and although he doesn't mention it, Magnetic Lad. Wildfire comes in and informs Bouncing Boy that Dream Girl wants new Legion recruits Invisible Kid and the White Witch to receive Academy training. Wildfire storms off after some private discussion about the role of the Academy in training not only future Legionnaires, but heroes as well. Element Lad, Shvaughn Erin, Brainiac 5, and Chameleon Boy meet in secret to plot how to expose a Durlan imposter masquerading as Shrinking Violet, and hopefully rescue the real Violet.
