"Dang, that knocks out my Supergirl add-on answer. Fraser"

"A lot depends on the meaning of "knowingly." I added Supergirl to my original list because the Kents met her as Supergirl so they "know" who she is — but they didn't "know" she was a Legionnaire. I'm…"

"Well it's not what you're thinking of (I'm quite sure) but it's odd they can just destroy his insignia. It's not like a a symbol of military rank or a Legion flight ring, so I'd think he has every right to wear it."

"That is some impressive mastery of detail. My compliments. I didn't remember the Legion ever had a treasurer, though obviously if they never referenced the job again, that's understandable."

"In Adventure Comics #278, Supergirl travels back in time and meets the Kents, telling them who she is. So I'm hoping that counts as meeting a Legionnaire knowingly."

"But would that make him the first leader or the first leader we see? Even in their first appearance, it's obvious they've been around for a while."

"My main reason for not including Sir Prize and Miss Terious is that the Commander says "new" names as they just switched back to their old ones. But then again, that logic would also leave out Mon-El."

"I just wrote "Lightning Boy" off as a glitch, like Cosmic Boy getting magnetic eyes from special serums or Supergirl meeting the children of the original Legionnaires. It took them a while to get things right."

"And of course he wielded the Spear of Destiny! Given that the book that propounded the "Spear of Destiny" concept was apparently a stinker even by the standards of occult claptrap (according to a friend of mine whose judgment of such…"

"Hitler's history is certainly more colorful in the MU than in real life."

Fraser Sherman replied to Commander Benson's discussion Deck Log Entry # 226 The Silver-Age Challenge---the Legion of Super-Heroes Edition II
"I thought about Hitler appearing in that one Legion story but ruled it out for precisely the reasons you state, Commander. Of course he became one at Marvel when he donned the Hatemonger costume, but I still wouldn't count WW II Hitler (and of…"

Fraser Sherman replied to Commander Benson's discussion Deck Log Entry #198 Kryptonite---a Glowing Reference (Part Three)
"I was just rereading "How Superboy Met Luthor" and it mentions a mineral I don't think they ever mentioned again, "Fool's kryptonite," which looks like green k but is actually harmless."

"That's a fair point Philip — I guess we'll see what the Commander thinks in a month. I reread his Superboy origin recently (Superboy seemed to work like the farm team in the late 1950s for concept they could import into Superman) and…"

Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
