The Subs take a look at an issue that features the Subs! Tales of the Legion 316 takes Cosmic Boy and the Substitute Heroes on a joyride through space, as well as the conclusion of the White Witch’s origin.
We ring in 2017 with a look at New Adventures of Superboy 14. It’s the one where Luthor tries to mess with Superboy’s powers! It also includes the story mentioned in episode 425, when Superbaby meets Zatara.
Once again, the Subs celebrate the holiday season with a little talk about their Christmas plans, and give commentary on a Christmas tv show. Up this year: Vicious starring Sir Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi (a name which Paul pronounces in at least 4 different ways).
Wishing you all the very best of the holidays!

Paul and Darren are joined by Corinne McCreery of the Supergirl Power Hour to discuss the Pre-Crisis Supergirl’s last appearance with the Legion.
With the Baxter run behind them, the Subs wonder “Whatever happened to the old newsstand book the Legion had?” Faster than you can say Crimson Avenger, they sat down to look at Tales of the Legion of Super Heroes. In this issue, 314, Ontiir is on trial, and nobody is enjoying the proceedings!
Darren and Paul are joined by Thomas Lanese of The Parliament Of Rooks podcast to recap the Magic Wars, talk about the end of the Baxter Run, reflect on the top ten Legion moments as outlined by DC All Access and look at their Top Five magical characters. All this, and a magic-themed Stump the Subs!
Darren and Paul take a look at the last issue of the Magic Wars, and of the series that contained it, the Baxter Run. They also look at upcoming collections, the week in Legion history, and a Stump the Subs.
The Subs are joined by Erik Matthews and Arne Starr. You may recognize his name from many comics during the 80s and 90s, including the Baxter Run of Legion of Super Heroes, but you’ll be surprised by how many other places you’ve seen Arne and his work!
Darren and Paul dig into part 3 of the Magic Wars, in which we lose another Legionnaire. Also, a Stump the Subs!
With Darren stuck in Deep Space (his internet has not yet been installed, so it’s like it’s the same thing), Paul continues his look at The New Adventures of Superboy. In this story, Superboy learns why it’s always a good idea to do one’s good deeds in the appropriate uniform! Then, a younger Superboy hands Perry White the scoop of his life!
