4. Glorith returned (sort of) at the Legion Academy. Back when she was the Time Trapper's assistant, what was the main reason that she was turned into a blob, yet the de-aged Legionnaires weren't, in ADVENTURE 338 (November 1965)?

1) Proty I and Comet (in a story that predated his "real" first appearance in Supergirl); also Proty II if you want to count "World of Doomed Olsens" as a Legion story and not a Jimmy Olsen story.

2)...don't know

3) Tell their origin story to applicants. (Bouncing Boy won)

4) Don't remember...

5) Starfire

6) Chameleon Boy and, uh, another male Legionnaire. Cosmic Boy?

2)The Art Balthasar kids line of books? I don't think Proty is listed in those books. The other way around they use B'dg as a Green Lantern stand in and Jumpa for Wonder Woman, Ace the Bathound for Batman. Do they also use a seahorse for Aquaman? I also think they have a flash turtle.

4) I'm with Anon, it was Starfire

3) Become leader of the Legion. This rather painful method of choosing a leader was wisely abandoned in favor of,.... uh, oh yeah,..... VOTING!



6) I think that was Phantom girl and Ultra Boy in Adventure 318, which, of course, led to their actual romance.
