1st app. Legion of Super-Heroes
Intended to be a one-off story featuring Superboy, the Legion of Super-Heroes has gone on to become the focus of countless stories since its introduction. Adventure Comics 247 tells the story of a group of three time-traveling teenagers from the 30th century who are looking to recruit Superboy into their outfit. Cosmic Boy, Lightning Boy (later referred to as Lightning Lad), and Saturn Girl, sit with stern faces, claiming Clark Kent is "too ordinary" to join their cause. The title story and accompanying statements by Cosmic Boy were just enough to entice young readers into finding out why Superboy was deemed so pedestrian. The curious plot-line in this issue would prove to become a benchmark for DC storytelling. The Legion returned several issues later for an encore and were adored by fans, subsequently, they appeared in issues of Action and Adventure Comics over the next few years. The continued success of the Legion proved that this story was not a throw-away Silver Age ploy, the group had staying power throughout the years, and most recently secured a reboot in the post-Infinite Crisis storyline in 2007.
