Odd to see the Boy of Steel taking over the cover again at this relatively late date so far into the Legion's popularity. This issue introduces Lone Wolf who wouldn't reappear for several years but when he did he was Timber Wolf and ended up with his own short-lived series in the late seventies. My scan of this issue is missing the ads and letters I'm afraid.

Another nice Swan cover but it tops some particularly wooden John Forte art inside. The story's interesting, though, as all of the members of the Legion of Super Outlaws were created by readers. Duplicate Boy, who turns out NOT to be an outlaw, will feature as a background character over the years as Shrinking Violet's boyfriend.

This truly odd Legion story has the just-intoduced last month Proty II--supposedly a "pet," remember!-- manipulating the group in a contest to choose the new LSH leader. It also includes appearances from Jimmy Olsen--as Elastic Lad--and Pete Ross, Superman's best friend and Superboy's best friend, together for the first (and only?) time. We also get a little quarter page featurette on the Subs, once again showing just how popular they were at this early stage.

While the Beatles were busy wowing the world in the summer of 1964, The Legion of Super Pets returned here in ADVENTURE. If you thought they sacrificed Proty as much to get rid of a lame character (who was a sentient alien, not a pet), then you'll be surprised that for all intents and purposes they resurrect him here as Proty II.
