** Explicitly forbidden in most versions of the Legion's constitution. Any hero whose only powers are derived from an external source (like a belt, ring, or clothes) are not allowed to serve on the team. Examples include the first Kid Quantum (whose death led to the adoption of the rule in the first place, in the reboot version) and any member of the GreenLanternCorps.

** Shvaughn Erin was turned into a pathetic stalker/transsexual who was addicted to gender-bending drugs. Sun Boy turned traitor and ended up being horribly burnt, to the point that he was mistaken as a monster by his own friends.

Eventually, Keith Giffen took over the book, along with [[RunningTheAsylum fans-turned-writers]] Tom and Mary Bierbaum, and the series ''really'' jumped into UsefulNotes/{{the Dark Age|of Comic Books}} with the "Five Years Later" TimeSkip. Earth is ruled by alien invaders. One character was [[{{Retcon}} retconned]] into an AppliedPhlebotinum [[{{Transsexual}} transsexual]], and another into a shapeshifter who only ''thought'' he was the character. The Legion are [[CloningBlues actually clones]] -- unless the other, younger Legion (Batch [=SW6=]) that were discovered in PeopleJars are the clones, as one might think at first. The moon was destroyed, [[EarthShatteringKaboom followed by the Earth itself]].

** Prior to this, a number of long-running subplots started during the TMK run were dropped unceremoniously because of the ''Zero Hour'' reboot. Some of these were quickly condensed into a panel or two in the final issue, but others were just forgotten. Most notably, Sussa Paka (formerly the villain Spider Girl) steals a mysterious sealed canister from the corrupt Earthgov branch of the Science Police (secretly under the control of the alien Dominators). On the run from the cops, she gets caught up in the Legion's battle to liberate Earth. Eventually, she shows up on the Legion's doorstep looking for protection, and immediately gets caught up in their problems. She grows fond of the team, and ultimately [[HeelFaceTurn joins up]], adopts a new name (Wave) and a new hair color...but events start cascading from there, and the actual contents of the canister that half the galaxy was ready to kill Sussa to get their hands are never revealed.

From 2006 to 2008, an AnimatedAdaptation came along, [[PragmaticAdaptation taking the most iconic versions]] of all involved (but taking even more inspiration from the Franchise/DCAnimatedUniverse, despite, judging by Brainiac 5's [[RobotBuddy being an android]], not being in continuity with it.) [[WesternAnimation/LegionOfSuperHeroes See Here for that series.]]

To become a member, you had to demonstrate at least one superpower not dependent on devices. Thus, telepathy, Saturn Girl; electricity powers, Lightning Lad; magnetic powers, Cosmic Boy, and so on. Applicants with [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway ridiculous powers]] (and some members of the Legion proper had pretty ridiculous powers) were consigned to the Legion of Substitute Heroes, who included Chlorophyll Kid (ability to make plants grow really fast), Stone Boy (ability to turn into an inanimate statue), Color Kid (ability to... change the color of things), and Double Header (whose name speaks for itself).

** In related series ''R.E.B.E.L.S.'', featuring Vril Dox II, an ancestor of Brainiac 5's from the 20th century, the earlier Dox makes a [[DealWithTheDevil deal with Neron]] in exchange for knowledge, offering up not his own somewhat tarnished soul, but instead placing the debt on his bloodline and setting it to come due in "about 1000 years." After ''R.E.B.E.L.S.'' was canceled, a team of Legionnaires was sent back to the 20th century, leading to a meeting between Querl and his ancestor in which Vril mentioned Neron in a guilty sort of way... and then nothing came of it. It was implied, however, that the insanity of Brainiac 5's mother could be related to this deal.

In the apocalyptic CrapsackWorld that results, the universe is ruled by evil sorcerer Mordru, and Glorith, one of his brides, strikes a deal with the resistance and agrees to be sacrificed to take the place of the Time Trapper and the universe is restored... with some key differences]].

* FutureSlang: "Grife" (interjection), "sprock" (verb), "nass" (noun, generally referring to an object or idea), and "squaj" (noun, generally referring to a person) are some of the more memorable terms, probably because they're all swear words. "Unlax" (relax), "persp" (perspire/ act nervous), and others also exist in more child-safe usage.

* HeelFaceMole: Preboot, Universo was a disgraced Green Lantern (he went through an offscreen FaceHeelTurn) and skilled hypnotist who had crossed paths with the Legion a number of times. During the five year gap between V3 and V4, he seemingly reformed and became a high-ranking figure in the Earth resistance movement. As a result, when the Earth is finally liberated, he becomes a high-ranking figure in the new Earthgov... a position he uses to frame the Legion as collaborators with the warlike Khund race and have them temporarily outlawed, forcing the Legionnaires to adopt disguises and go on the lam.

** In the first Post-Crisis continuity, this was {{Retcon}}ned so that all of the Human Aliens were actually humans who were sent to colonize other planets after gaining superpowers during ''ComicBook/{{Invasion}}''... and Projectra, still an actual alien, was a snake.
* HumansAreWhite: There have been comparatively few dark-skinned Legionnaires. This ties into ExecutiveMeddling in the original continuity. Jim Shooter originally intended for Ferro Lad to be black, however Mort Weisinger vetoed the idea afraid that DC would face backlash in the South. Unhappy that he was unable to do what he originally intended with the character, Shooter decided to write out the character with his now legendary HeroicSacrifice. The Legion wouldn't get its first black member until Tyroc in 1976... which was also a sore spot with creators. Shooter was unhappy that Tyroc was a black character instead of a character who happened to be black. Mike Grell intentionally gave Tyroc the worst design he could think of as protest. Tyroc was so unpopular with Legion creative teams that he was the only Legionnaire introduced before Paul Levitz's decade-long run on the title that was never used. Levitz [[PutOnABus put him on a bus]] and never referred to him. He did finally use the character when he returned to the title in the 2010s, though.

*** The massive Levitz-Giffen version from the 1980s brought in minor characters Esper Lass (standing in for Saturn Queen, who had only every appeared as a member of the "Adult" LSV, as Saturn Girl's counterpart), Ol-Vir (a [[MoreThanMindControl Darkseid-worshipping Daxamite]] left over from the Great Darkness Saga who oppose Mon-El), Micro Lad (a villain from Shrinking Violet's homeworld who was essentially a WesternTerrorist) and Magno Lad (a JerkJock who, along with Esper Lass, had previously tried to bully his way into replacing Cosmic Boy in the Legion). It also used Cosmic King as a counterpart to the similarly powered Element Lad.
