Legion ad

Staying with the Legion theme for a moment, here’s the 1968 ad for Superboy #147, the issue that presented the world with the origin of the Legion of Super-Heroes for the very first time. Not a great origin, to be sure, but it’s the only one we’ve got! This is, however, a beautifully designed ad — and the Legion deserves nothing less.

Fifty years young, and still the Best!
