Superman has always been my favorite comic book hero. In the 1950s and 1960s Adventure Comics chronicled the adventures of Superman-When-He-Was-a-Boy, often featured stories about super-powered youths from outer space who visited Smallville. None of these characters ever last more than one issue. So Superboy seemed destined never to have super powered pals to share his exploits. But that all changed in Adventure Comics #247 (April 1958) when three mysterious teens arrived to invite Superboy to join their Super-Hero Club in the future. I did not pick up on their adventures until a few years later but once I did, I was hooked. They fought super villains; battled space monsters; and fans even got a glimpse of the Legionnaires as adults.
   
  From their beginning when three super-powered teens saved the life of the richest man in the Universe, the team grew to 27 Legionnaires with various super powers from worlds throughout the Galaxy. Using Time Bubbles, the Legion was even able to ask both Supeboy and Supergirl to join even though they existed nearly 20 years apart. To see the full roster, click to the right.
