Indexer Notes

This reprint says that it is adapted from Who's Who in the Legion of Super-Heroes (DC, 1988 series) #2-6, but it's really an exact reprint of the article in the Secret Files issue. The information in both that and the Who's Who issues was extracted/edited from four years earlier from Legion of Super-Heroes, The (DC, 1980 series) #308 (February 1984). And much of the information was published in tidbits in even earlier stories, and in places such as Adventure Comics (DC, 1938 series) #325-326 and Legion of Super-Heroes (DC, 1973 series) #1 (February 1973).
