Legion of Super-Heroes, the silver age omnibus by Otto O Binder( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It started out as just anothe rSuperboy story - on the face of it, perhaps a bit more innovative than most, although it was published during one of the most creative periods in DC Comics history, it wound up changing the entire comics field. The Legion of Super-Heroes was merely a clever title for a group of teenage superheroes (only three of whom were actually named) from the far future who went back in time to pay tribute to the greatest teenage superhero of them all - the Boy oboy. But the interest from comics fans was so great, the super-team was brought back time and time again, in the majority of Superman Family titles. Eventually, demand grew so strong that the Legion of Super-Heroes was awarded its own continuing series. This first volume of The Legion of Super-Heroes Omnibus includes, in their entirety, all of the significant appearances of the teenage super-team prior to the establishment of their ongoing series." -- Page 4 of cover
