    I really didn't know the Legion at the time. My friend was a huge Legion fan going back to the Superboy and the LOSH days and he was on-board for the reboot of it was done well. He thought it was some good, some bad. I had been following Valor since the Eclipso crossover and was curious when the LOSH and Legionnaires were combined in Zero Hour.

For some odd reason I have always been a Valor/Mon-El fan. The red costume is part of it. Also, the fact that he lived in the 30th century, where Superboy only visited, gave him a rationale for his existence on the team (where powers were never supposed to be duplicated) and on the comic book page. I wish the 30th century's popularity with the general fan base had been greater, so a Mon-El comic could really have been viable. I would have bought it.

    I don't remember a ton other than Kon-El Superboy and Valor being involved. The rebooted Ferro Lad was involved with the Sun-Eater during Final Night this time, another replay of classic Legion history?

Ferro Lad is another character I inexplicably favor. For some reason I just love characters who are made of metal but are not robots.

    And I liked Matter-Eater Lad. Goofy which is my wheelhouse.

Matter Eater Lad's power is really pretty impressive. I wonder if he can eat antimatter? If he visited the Marvel universe, I wonder if he'd be able to eat Mjolnir?
