I bought this issue because it had Angel and the Ape on the cover. I was surprised that they weren't the only Silver Age DC comedy characters to show up inside. I've posted a few panels. See if you…Continue
"Surely that never happened?
Actually, I remember this Legion tale. It features six teens who have the same powers as six members of the Legion, because they come from the same planets. The applicants claimed that the Legion's…"
"Gotta say, just from the cover image, looks like the then new Avengers are going to get creamed by the original team. Hank might do ok against his alternate self and Hawkeye might hold his own against Iron Man, but the chances of Cap beating…"
