Rounding out our coverage of the Legion’s Secret Origins, we bring you the Secret Origin of Bouncing Boy from Secret Origins issue 49. Then, we realize that it’s only a two page story, so it’s time to watch Jimmy Olsen battle the Legion of Super Villains in Jimmy Olsen 63 and 87.
The Subs look at the last of the Secret Origins stories, in issue 42, and it’s a great one with Phantom Girl. Tom and Mary Bierbaum script, with Dave Cockrum on art and we learn a lot of new elements of Tinya’s story, many things that would continue into other continuities!
It’s Paul’s Birthday, so he gets to take a break, but that’s okay, because we’ve been doing Secret Origins issues, and the Dead Legionnaires issue has been off the feed for quite some time. So here it is, episode 165 from wayback in December 2011! The Subs dive into the past for a bit. Well, the past of the future, that is. It’s a look at the origins of some dead Legionnaires, some of whom have died a few times! Secret Origins is the book, and it’s a look at Ferro Lad, Chemical King and Karate Kid.
The Subs begin the year by inviting James Purcell back to discuss the Secret Origin of the Legion. Additionally, there’s a Stump the Subs, actual Legion News, and This Week in Legion History!
