When Magog hears a report of his old unit nearby in Africa, he leaves Gog and the JSAers walking with Gog towards Kahndaq. As he brutally completes his unit's mission, he recalls the incidents in his life that brought him to this point, including finding an artifact looted from the Baghdad Museum which burrowed into his skin and left him with energy powers. The mission complete, Magog rejoins Gog and his teammates on the march towards Kahndaq.

Indexer Notes

It is not clear how much of the pre-Crisis Legion history happened to the "Lightning Saga" Legion, as it is implied in this story that Starman did not return to the Legion until recently, while in the original continuity he returned to the Legion soon after being expelled.
