Situated in the Legion headquarters, the Hall of Heroes holds statues of the many fallen legends who have sacrificed themselves to save the universe, planets, loved ones and freedom.

Here's a look at the last moments of those Legionnaires who have departed. Some have returned from the dead, while others weren't quite as dead as originally suspected. But all were willing to give their lives for the ideals of the Legion.

Including those times like Mask Man was unexpected but appropriate I think.

Thanks! Now fixed. As I ended up posting them all at speed, I'd be surprised if that's the only typo, so do please let me know. I was toying with putting the Academy students up too, and finding a way of designated the ones that weren't legionnaires, but reserve/ honorary etc. I'll see.

All in one needlessly extended fight scene really to my mind. But that's what Johns was doing everywhere else, so why would this be an exception?

That was a really unsettling read. I only read it for the first time as part of the reread thread, and I was shocked. Having read the Reflecto saga, seeing Ultra Boy supposedly dead wasn't a new thing. But then it just got worse and worse for them... >shivers<

It was a powerful, visceral, haunting scene. I consider L* Annual 2 to be one of the single most well-written issues in all the decades that the Legion has existed in one form or another.

I also LIKED Apparition pre-death much, MUCH better than I EVER liked Phantom Girl. I talked about that quite a bit in my Luornu thread recently, so I'll just reiterate the gist -- Postboot Tinya was well-defined, complex, and strong, while I feel that Preboot Tinya was never more than a pretty face framed by a couple of age-inappropriate but very healthy-looking pigtails.

Point being, I think bringing Apparition back to life was a cop-out. After she was back in the future, she and Jo (whose Postboot version I also far prefer to his Preboot counterpart) both got whinier and less likeable, and DnA just made them both even worse.

Personally, I'd like to have seen Postboot Jo and Sussa gradually drift back into each others' arms in the aftermath of Tinya's death.

Now I'm picturing Tinya in Catriona Mac Call's role in Fulci's "Fear in the City of the Living Dead."

Specifically, the scene involving the pickaxe that keeps just barely missing Ms Mac Call as some dim bulb tries to free her from the coffin she was mistakenly placed in...

Oh, hang on a minute, Tinya can turn intangible, so no worries then, la la la la la.

lol

Alas, poor Mentalla. Had that been the Silver Age, she would almost definitely have succeeded in her infiltration...

Jed's death was much more meaningful than Berta's, despite them dying in the same "story". At least Jed succeeded in awakening Mysa's spirit, so to speak. Berta was just cannon fodder.

And like Dave said above, Una's death by rat was such a waste of space.

What a neat initiative which we haven't really had compiled in one place before. Thanks for doing this, thoth.

Seeing it in this format and factoring in a few of the Elseworlds, it's interesting which Legionnaires seem to die frequently across continuities and who never register an appearance. Colossal Boy and Sun Boy have really tallied some deaths. Not to mention poor Lu.

Thanks Future. it was an offshoot for something ahead in Bits where the characters are in the Hall of Heroes and I needed to work out who was in there. But also from your own excellent Micros thread where I go across each of them going "Active", "Dedded", "Lost in Time", "Dedded", "Dedded"... smile

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.

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.

What! There was a Galaxy Girl? Ooh, was her real name Interplanet Janet? smile

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.
