I am introducing a new "blog segment": Critic Corner. Here I'll tell you about my review of comic issues.
Comic: Action Comics No. 247
Synopsis: Superboy meets the Legion of Super Heroes. They ofter him a chance to earn membership. But despite the fact they owe their existence to him, Superboy wasn't "super" enough!
Feature Characters: Superboy; Cosmic Boy, Saturn Girl and Lightning Lad (Legion of Super Heroes)
Trivia: 1) Saturn Girl said that she, Lightning Lad and Cosmic Boy got their powers from being alien, but it was revealed Lightning Lad got his powers when attacked by a "lightning beast". 2) Although this was intended to be a one-shot, the Legion was popular enough to feature in later stories.
