Adventure Comics #247 Tribute
The Adventure Comics #247 Tribute pays homage to the first appearance of the Legion of Super-Heroes.

Adventure Comics #247

THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES
ADVENTURE COMICS #247, April 1958
WRITER: OTTO BINDER ARTIST: AL PLASTINO

The story was simple enough -- Superboy met up with a trio of super-powered teenagers from the future, they tested him and accepted him into their club. The story had time travel, it has costumed characters, it was an origin of sorts, and it was a rite-of-passage story. Better still, it was a story that illustrated that super-heroes were a breed apart from the rest of us, and that they could bond together (happily or not) and share their common experiences, concerns, and desires.

Taken from Mike Gold's Foreword in the Legion of Super-Heroes Archives: Volume 1.
