If you haven’t received your weekly shipment of goodness, and you haven’t read Matthew’s review of JSA #6, then you are missing out on a key moment in Legion of Super-Hero history. Now if you have read JSA #6, but are wondering if the tale Superman tells everyone of the resurrection of Lighting Lad really happened, Major Spoilers brings you a then and now look at the tale in question.
Adventure Comics #312: Months before, Lightning Lad was killed in action, and the Legion of Super-Heroes vowed they would never forget him until they found a way to bring him back to life. The heroes find a way, but it will cost another member’s life.
Justice Society of America #6: Superman recounts the tale. WE ARE LEGION!
What I love about the art by Dale Eaglesham is the slight modifications to Superman in the right side of the split panel that shows the Big S with a build slightly smaller than the modern day version. I also love the fact he placed the characters in the same positions as the original tale. Very well done.
