Review:

The second Showcase Presents black-and-white volume of Legion of Super-Heroes stories spans Adventure Comics 322 (July 1964) through 348 (September 1968), an important period that went a long way in defining the 30th-century supergroup. Some of the stories are silly (Super Pets, Bizarro Legionnaires, Legionnaire babies, the revolt of the girl Legionnaires), but there's also Computo, the mad machine who killed a Legionnaire; the Legion of Super Outlaws (including Duplicate Boy); Lightning Lad vs. the Super Moby-Dick of Space; the Legion civil war; the trial of Star Boy; and the Luck Lords. New villains were Starfinger, Dr. Regulus, and the warfaring Khunds, and new members included Timber Wolf, Karate Kid, Ferro Lad, and Princess Projectra. The art is mostly by John Forte or Superman legend Curt Swan, and the writing by Jerry Siegel or Edmond Hamilton, until issue 346, when 13-year-old wunderkind Jim Shooter ushered in the writing (and storyboarding, the large-panel style of which is noticeably different from the norm) that would carry the Legion to new heights. Also included are two Superboy stories from the same era involving peripheral Legionnaries: Insect Queen and Evolvo Lad. --David Horiuchi
