Legion Tie-Ins: JSA #78-80

(SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers. Don't read it before you've read the comic.)

You might want to look through the back issues for three recent issues of JSA that have a Legion connection.

JSA #78 (12/05) Lost & Found Part 1
JSA #79 (1/06) Lost & Found Part 2
JSA #80 (2/06) Lost & Found Part 3

All three feature Legion villain Mordru. The Merciless One attacks the wizard Shazam, then goes after Doctor Fate before finally being defeated by Jakeem and the Thunderbolt. In the end, Jakeem orders the Thunderbolt to "send this fool somewhere none of us will ever have to see him again" and Mordru disappears in a magical ZAKOOM!

Mordru has been an on-again, off-again foe of the JSA since the team's most recent reboot. As near as I can tell, there's never been an explanation of how this all fits in with the Legion. Considering the hash that Legion "continuity" has become, and the fact that Infinite Crisis is in the process of rewriting the DC Universe yet again, I don't suppose it matters much. Throw in some magic, flashes of pink light and purple smoke, and a resounding ZAKOOM, and it might as well all be explained.
