Synopsis for "The Lone Wolf Legionnaire!"

This story is reprinted from Adventure Comics #327.

While stopping rampaging animals from an interplanetary zoo, Light Lass and Brainiac 5 meet a super-powered teen named Lone Wolf who uses his talents to help them stop the carnage. When they offer him membership in the Legion of Super-Heroes, he declines, stating that he is a lone wolf in practice as well as in name.

When a series of crimes lead the Legion to believe that Lone Wolf is responsible, they try to take him in, in spite of the fact that Light Lass is smitten by him. When they finally catch up with Lone Wolf, they are caught in a dimensional vortex. When they free themselves, Lone Wolf explains to Light Lass that he isn't human before fleeing and the other Legionnaires deduce that he's an android.

Tracing the origins of Lone Wolf to the planet Zoon, they find Brin Londo who explains that Lone Wolf is an android named Karth Arn and is evil. However, the Legion soon realizes that "Brin Londo" is really Karth and after defeating him they learn that Karth usurped Brin Londo's identity (Brin turns out to be Lone Wolf) and framing him for the crimes he's committed. With the truth revealed, Lone Wolf agrees to join the Legion, but hopes find a new name.

Synopsis for "The Infinite Man Who Conquered the Legion!"

This story is reprinted from Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes #233.

When Rond Vidar proposes sending a man forward enough through time to test his theory that the fourth dimension has a circular structure, Professor Jaxon Rugarth volunteers for the maiden voyage. Vidar's new time machine, which incorporates two of his previous inventions, the Time Cube and a 'Hyper Time Drive', proves to be far more powerful than Vidar expected, sending Rugarth through the timelines of so many dimensions so many times that his mind snaps from the strain. A new, powerful self, with knowledge of the future and the past, drawing energy from the ceaseless flow of time is formed, calling itself the Infinite Man. Breaking out of the timestream at the point Rugarth had entered, the Infinite Man attacks Vidar. The Legionnaires try to protect him, but the Infinite Man plucks creatures from various eras to combat them. However, during the melee, Vidar manages to secretly sabotage the Hyper Time Drive and send the Infinite Man back on his endless circle through time.

Vidar and Brainiac 5 work for years trying to find a way to cure Rugarth, but they are unsuccessful until a power surge brought on by the Crisis on Infinite Earths frees the Infinite Man once more. With the help of the White Witch, whose spells cause the Infinite Man's energies to be sent back into the timestream, his threat is averted. Rugarth, totally powerless, and largely mindless, is sent to Medicus One for treatment.

When Brainiac 5 needs a power source strong enough to puncture the Time Trapper's Iron Curtain of Time, he and Vidar re-energized Rugarth in the Time Cube, forcing him to metamorphose back into the Infinite Man, who then, with a timely assist from Brainiac's force-field, drags the Time Trapper into the Timestream, presumably to the Dawn of Time, where they grapple still.
