I'd forgotten how enjoyable the early tales of the Legion of Super-Heroes were, and how much more innocent comics seemed at the time. Sure, they killed off characters in those days (and the Legion suffered their share of deaths in the early days; I still remember the shock I felt at the death of Ferro Lad), and at least in the Legion series, they stayed dead. But those tales of the LSH were stuff I grew up with as well, 'cause I was barely in my teens when the Legion first started appearing in Adventure Comics.
The Legion's run in Adventure Comics really started with #300, of course, and they ran in the comic for 80 issues, actually displacing the Superboy stories that had been so prevalent in the comic. But times changed, and the Legion got relegated to the second feature of the first incarnation of Action Comics. I followed the Legion through every incarnation of the series, the reboots (several of which I didn't like), and now here we are today where the original Legion, aged through continuity, are back for the most part, and the comic is making me very happy.
The weird (or perhaps not-so-weird) thing is, it's given me a desire to run a Legion of Super-Heroes roleplaying game of some sort again. My favourite roleplaying game for running a Legion campaign has to be the DC Heroes Roleplaying Game (later to become Blood of Heroes, but I'm not sure I'd use that to run it), as to be honest, I have no interest in running the game with the current DC Adventures rpg. I would love to run a Legion Academy game again, but if nothing else, I would definitely run the game pre-Crisis (the original Crisis, not these pretenders to the Crisis throne). Ah well, it's a pipe dream, since I don't think I could get my players to go for this now. *sigh*
