Hi again! Stronger than ever, we return! This time with the Secret Origin of Bouncing Boy!! A fan favorite even if he's one of our least favorites. Also in this issue is a story about Clark Kent and Lex Luthor... as cell-mates. I shit you not. Some really nice art is in that too, I might do a side-post about it some time. This is also a tryout issue and the first appearance of Storm Boy!
And yes, it's "starscream", not "starscreamer". We forgot to talk about it, but we included a scan of the amazing letters column from this issue that features the editor picking on a fat child (mixed messages much??) and someone whining that Bizarros rock harder than Legion. I will find you, Wendell Evans of Boston Mass. I will find you and fight you.

I think I love Mort Weisinger for his blatant mockery of small children. also note the mention of "bits of legionnaire business" which i think we'll talk more about later.
