Actually, whislt i didn't mind that plot thread it was more the stuff like blowing up the Earth - the fact you couldn't second guess where the book would go. things actually changed characters grew...

Besides the two legion set up (had they not reset the whole thing) meant that those who wanted a youthful legion could have had it and the rest of us could follow the older guys - best of both worlds!

But no that wasn't good enough for DC and they had to reset the whole damn thing. \:\(

I always felt that destroying earth was the last straw for the book - nowhere left to go without our world to focus on.

At the time I loved the book and this is the run that got me really interested, but in hindsight it's all too easy to see that the Five year Gap and the way it developed was a huge huge mistake for the overall future of the book, it had the worst of starts as Giffen had to cope with retconning Superboy right out of history despite the fact he was friggin DEAD and gone!! I hated the editorial jostling that was responsible for that one and the sick joke of it was that just over a year later it was the Superman team themselves (Adventures 478) who reinstated Superboys place in the Legion *gah* *rhe*
