All these retellings of the Legion's early years, and I'm surprised that nobody has written in early members like a (Caucasian earth-woman) Shadow Woman or (unrelated to the Wanderer of the same name) Quantum Queen as Legionnaires who end up dying (instead of figures like James Cullen/Kid Quantum I). In my head, the (referenced but never shown, IIRC) 'first battle with Mordru' might be a good place for 'Shadow Woman' (predating the appearance of the blue-skinned Shadow Lass from Talokk VIII by years, and having different powers, like the ability to turn into shadow) to lose her life.

I guess that, as it was an adult Supes visiting a more distant future, that these were to be members after his time as Superboy. By #300 Levitsz had marked these as an alternate future. You're right that retconning in Kid Quantum could just as easily have been the story of Quantum Queen. Perhaps, as she had already appeared as a Wnaderer, they felt it had to be a bit different. Of course, the Wanderers' Quantum Queen didn't have to be the first with that name.

Wouldn't you like to know?
Thanks for the diligent and frequent updates, thoth!

In the Reboot, XS' origin story in LSH Annual 6 had a panel showing the deaths of their reality's Tornado Twins, too.

That was great Set!

It's a shame that Interplanet Janet was used to scout worlds by Buck Phaser in the pages of Xenophobic Monthly back in the '50s or rather in the 1950's when it was set.
