She's still preoccupied with 1985...

And nothing has been alright since
Bruce Springsteen, Madonna
Way before Nirvana
There was U2 and Blondie
And music still on MTV
Her two kids in high school
They tell her that she’s uncool
Cause she's still preoccupied
With 19, 19, 1985
   -- Bowling for Soup, "1985"

Scans_Daily has some excerpts from the 1985 "Amazing Heroes" Preview Issue. AH was a great magazine. First annually, then twice a year, they'd publish a mammoth volume listing everything from the major (and not so major) companies and what's coming up. This issue talks about things like the untitled "Batman Special Project" (Batman 10 years in the future, by Frank Miller), "Crisis on Infinite Earths", "Marvelman", and "Watchmen".

So let's see what 1985 had in store for the Legion...

What a blast from the (more pleasant) past, when the Legion was on the top of the sales charts!

They would use the art that has arrows sticking out of Dawnstar's body {sigh} ... her only solo cover.

Until, o'course, Legion of 3 Worlds 5, nearly a quarter friggin' century later. George Pérez and Nei Ruffino almost made me forget those arrows. ... Almost.
