Adventure Comics # 354, March, 1967

As important as the stories by Shooter have been up 'til now, this new two-parter is equally infamous. But I still love it and it's not even a guilty pleasure. This is the controversial "Adult Legion" story that seemingly tied writers to its continuity for ages afterwards. Oddly, not only is the just deceased Ferro Lad prominently featured on the cover but so are, in their first appearances, Chemical King, Reflecto and, most importantly, Shadow Lass. 

In a nod to past history, Lone Wolf returns as Timber Wolf, again several years prior to his actually doing so in continuity. It's more a set-up than a story but so much fun for Legion fans.

This Captain Action with parachute was my big Christmas gift that year. It didn't work. I threw it out the third floor window multiple times and Cap just plummeted to the ground. Recently it was selling for upwards of $1000.00 on eBay. Yeesh.
