1a. Sigellium: Affects every super-powered people like Kryptonite except Superboy (Prisoner of the Super-Heroes, IIRC).

1b. Serum XY-4: Cures Mon-El of lead poisoning temporarily.

1c. Duralim: attracts lightning like crazy - used to revive Lightning Lad

1d. Cancellite: Freezes shape-shifters (I believe Supergirl invented this during the first Revolt of the Girl Legionnaires)

1e. Zuunium: Gave Timber Wolf his super powers.

I have to hat up. I don't know anything that Terence didn't know, and he got a lot more than I would have.

I don't know if this is the appearance (of sorts) of Rokyn you mean, but a trawl through my Legion Archives shows that it was named in Adventure Comics #356 ("The Five Legion Orphans!"). I believe this was the first historical mention of Rokyn.

1.a. Sigellium was used in the second Legion story. I think it was used by the Legion to remove Superboy's powers.
b. Serum XY-4 was Saturn Girl's formula to protect Mon-El from lead.
c. ?
d. Cancellite cancelled Chameleon Boy's shape changing powers.
e. Zuunium gave Brin Londo his Timber Wolf powers.
f. Rejuvium made people grow younger.

2. Lightning Lad and Saturn Girl? or was it Phantom Girl?

3. I know Mxyztlplk (sp?) appeared on a Superboy show. Or is he considered only a Superman villain? Oh, I know! Mordru appeared on that awful Legends of the Heroes crapfest in the 70s!

4. Krypto, Streaky, Comet and Beppo.

5. It was mentioned in a story when several Legionnaires, including Superboy were devolved to toddlers. Brainiac 5 claimed that the young Kal-El came from Rokyn since that's where Kryptonian was spoken.
