There certainly seems to be a lot of instances of Legion references in the DCU lately. I know there are references scattered throughout this thread but since it seems like this is just going to be happening more and more I thought I'd start this thread as a catchall for those little Legion-verse things that pop up in regular DCU books.
Most notable recent Legion "incursions":
-- Buddy Baker tapping into the powers of a Sun-Eater.
-- Infectious Lass in "Tales of the Unexpected"
-- That Durlan agent (I think named Daggle?) in "Green Lantern Corps"
-- Venegar in "Brave & the Bold"
-- in "Green Lantern" #18, there's a black-haired, blue skinned woman in a black cape and bikini named Lyssa Drak of Talok IV. She's part of the Sinestro Corps and is the keeper of the "Book of Parallax"
-- and of course the JSA.

I'm sure I missed a few. Some of these occurances have discussions in the Gym'll's forum, but I also wanted the little appearances to get noted somewhere as well.

This is a great idea Drake. What with the Legion appearing in more and more comics, we need a checklist of all appearances!

-- Oh, and of course we know the Fatal Five are coming to "Brave & the Bold" next month
-- Aside from Venegar, this month's "B&B" also mentions interlac (no surprise "B&B" has Legion references with Waid as writer...)

In the Action comics annual. There is mention of Mon-el and a set of statues of the legion in the fortress of solitude. Plus in Justice League of America #1 Batman refers to Superman's Legion flight ring.


There is no better Super Hero group to have ever been in comics than the Legion of Super Heroes.

52 had also featured the Eye of Ekron a few weeks back. It also had the 21st century Persuader and his axe appear briefly.

To date, with come-on's as well as published issues, we know of Star Boy, Dream Girl and Dawnstar appearing in JSA.

They also reference a "planetary chance" machine... which was also the name of a device the Adventure era Legion used. smile

Buddy has also adapted the power of the Sun Eaters in 52, another Legion tie-in, since they were first used in Legion.

In the most recent issue of Action comics Superman faces off against a sun eater (it's a flashback tale told by Pa Kent who was there at the time) and he tells Pa, I've faced them before, but then I had help. Or something along those lines, I didn't buy the issue, just read it in the shop.


Long Live the Legion!

And don't forget the GL Corpse storyline with the Durlan Named Daggle featured the Dominators as the bad guys.

Oh and the article in wizard this month basically explained that the JLA/JSA crossover is really a JLA/JSA/Legion crossover with no pussyfooting around. I'm just wondering where in Silver Age legion this takes place and how are they going to deal with the silver age supergirl issue?

Seems I am reading the wrong DC books right now - I had NO IDEA that there was so much 80s Legion going on in JSA...

Are there certain issues when this all began? Do I have to subscribe to JSA to find out more? Or will these just be tasty cameos with no relevance whatsoever???

Somehow, I never did get into JSA in all it's incarnations... kind of a blind spot in my team superhero book collection...

Can somebody tell me what's going on there???

Read all 4 issues of the new series they are chock full and you wont be disappointed!

Also you will want all of this upcoming crossover with the JLA

The Wizard article explained it as a 3 way crossover with Legion.
