(SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers. Don't read it before you've read the comics.)
COUNTDOWN #39 (8/1/07)
"Do Not Pass Go"
ROLL CALL: Karate Kid, Una
Karate Kid and Una (both from the Lightning Saga Legion) pay a call on Oracle, who will apparently have some answers. I hope so.

JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA #8 (10/07)
"Bells & Whistles"
ROLL CALL: Dream Girl (cameo)
Dream Girl (of the Lightning Saga Legion) appears on page 1 in a one-panel flashback to the Lightning Saga.
COMPOSITE SUPERMAN action figure
First Appearance Series 3
includes a mini-reproduction of World's Finest #142
ROLL CALL: Brainiac 5 (cameo), Mon-El (cameo), Saturn Girl (cameo), Sun Boy (cameo); Statuettes: Bouncing Boy, Brainiac 5, Chameleon Boy, Colossal Boy, Cosmic Boy, Elastic Lad, Element Lad, Invisible Kid, Light Lass, Lightning Lad, Matter-Eater Lad, Mon-El, Phantom Lad, Saturn Girl, Shrinking Violet, Star Boy, Sun Boy, Supergirl, Triplicate Girl, Ultra Boy
Joe Meach, caretaker at the Superman Museum, was standing by the Legion Statuettes when they were struck by lightning. As a result, he gained the powers of all the Legionnaires. Using Chameleon Boy's power, he took on the form and identity of the Composite Superman (a half-Batman, half-Superman figure with Brainiac 5's green skin) and menaced Batman and Superman.
See, even in those days continuity was a mess.
The Composite Superman figure is a perfect accompaniment to your own Legion Statuettes.
(Later addition: Apparently this figure has been out for a long time. What can I say? I didn't see it until this week. Oops!)
