The Danny Blaine/ Starman that helped Jack Knight was the post Zero Hour hero, which might be a different Starman. Since Waid’s reboot the post Zero Hour Starman doesn’t even exist. I hope it is the original.

The idea is that this Starman is far into even what we saw in the post-boot future legion stories, so seeing Dawnstar in the mix doesn't automatically make it the pre-boot legion.

He seems to be able to fly under his own power again. I am wondering if he has regained the powers he received from a comet fly by, which were close to Superboy's level.

He doesn't have Superboy-like powers. Originally, he had these mass-altering powers. But then he went through the tail of a comet and gained Superboy-like powers. But when the radiation went away, he still had the mass-altering powers (which you see in the story).

Here's a kicker...the "orginal" Starboy from teh Legion was Thom Laor as stated...he met Jack Knight. Alex Ross said he made the KC Starman look like the 70s Starboy's costume.

Waid rebooted teh legion...isn't Starboy also Kalor there? And...a black kid? ( I assume "African American" means little when comming from another planet by then)

And yes, we saw DAWNSTAR, which as far as I know, is a character not in teh current Legion reboot. Kalor is also a KID there.

This does seem to be a time/continuity tossed Starboy.
