Is this a pre-zero hour legionary? A post Infinite Crisis-legionary? Is this a legionary from one of the two reboots that happened in between (the part of legion history that doesn't work for me/confuses me)?
Oh, I thought you meant the creator of the character in question. Say, if someone created a character without a secret identity, and later on, someone wrote that character's real name as being the creator's name. 100% my bad.
I still wouldn't have got it right, even if I understood.
I got that info from Roy's page. I think it happened in the late 1990s.
http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/Roy_Harper_(New_Earth)Arsenal served as a full-time member on the team, and chose to reside at the new Titans Tower with his daughter, Lian. He hired Rose Wilson to be Lian's nanny, and also attempted an adult relationship with Donna Troy, but broke it off when it became clear that Troy was dealing with an identity crisis of her own. Arsenal, who by that point had established a reputation as something of a "ladies' man," went back to his philandering ways.
It's Peter Parker. I'm giving it to SforHope, since he mentioned Peter. He's on the far left of this panel, and Jimmy Olsen is on the other side of the same panel.
On the subject of Peter's glasses: he wears them in early 1960s stories, flashback stories, and alternate universe stories depicting a young Peter. In the Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane continuity (a high school soap opera comic) he never stopped wearing glasses.
Hush was the first Batman story I ever read and it's still my favourite standalone Batman story (although my favourite run is Grant Morrison's). I have read and reread Hush many times, and I noticed several visual easter eggs. This was one. I might use others in future questions.
Batman #229. In Temperature Boiling and Rising Robin finds evidence that the New Cathage Tribune was given doctored photographs as part of a smear campaign against Professor Stuart. When the editor of the paper offers Robin a job as a free-lance reporter Dick suggests he look up a guy called Peter Parker.
We learned that Madame Xanadu liked to mingle with the Spectre, but she was certainly not fond of the other omnipotent agent of the divine. Fortunately, the Phantom Stranger had his own blind admirer. Who was she?
In Earth-Prime, the Earth's axis has shifted. Becuase of this, the atmosphere of the world has also changed. The place they go to has Antarctic-like weather, but in real life (and their past), it is warm, sunny, and known for an oddly-shaped building.

I'm afraid I am the only person on this entire wiki who reads and actually enjoys LOSH. Most people steer clear of it because of its jumbled continuity.
I tend to think of LOSH as part of the Superman mythos, and what knowledge I have of it mostly comes from the Legion's appearances in Superman stories (I'm a huge Superman fan). I find Legion stories without Superman hard to follow, mainly because of the ginormous cast.
No. The Suicide Squad issue doesn't contain any tombstones. Hint: (I'm making it super easy now) One of the tombstones in the Hush issue indicates that an event similar to the plot of the Suicide Squad issue has happened. If you've actually read both stories the similarity shouldn't be hard to spot.
I don't think the question is too hard, per se. It just depends on someone having read both stories recently enough to remember details. And since the answer is seemingly related to literary analysis (theme, etc) and not pure facts (who appears, what happened, etc.), it can't be looked up easily.
It might help to give more hints. Whenever I seemed to have stumped the crowd, I give hints daily until the question is answered.
No, the connection between the two stories has nothing to do with Rudy Giuliani.
Here's the answer I was looking for:
Both stories involve the death of a comic book writer. In Suicide Squad #58, Grant Morrison (well, his fiction suit, anyway) dies. In Hush there is a tombstone visible in the cemetery marked "Here Lies Brian Azzarello."
I'll give it to Fuzzy Slippers, because they came closer than anyone else.
I was making a comment about you having apparently read Boondock Saints #58 (by the way, how did you come across that?).
In... yeah, Batman: the Animated Series, what three villains were originally intended to be the only ones he had faced before their individual appearances in the series, as villains (so, no Two-Face. He would know Harvey, not Two-Face. To be fair, Bruce, as far as we know, has never even heard of Big Bad Harvey).
I have never read any Boondock Saints stuff. I don't know what Boondock Saints is (other than what a quick visit to TVTropes tells me).
I read Suicide Squad #58 because it was collected in a tpb recently.
Is this some impenetrable internet in-joke thing where you refer to David Ayer's less-than-stellar Suicide Squad movie as Boondock Saints to prevent other people from understanding your conversation?
(Apologies if that sounded rude. I'm new here and I don't know everything that goes on).
If that's true, then my answer to the question "why would one pursue Suicide Squad anything" is that John Ostrander and Kim Yale's Suicide Squad series is one of the finest things in comics ever (and also that Sean Ryan and Rob Williams, while not in Ostrander/Yale's league, are entertaining and skilled in their own right, and way better than David Ayer).
My apologies. I've been really busy. To answer Tomfull.i's question, I was not referring to Suicide Squad. I do have a Chrome extension that turns "Suicide Squad" into "The Boondock Taints", but I never got the joke until you mentioned that to me. I do hate Suicide Squad, though.
A script for an unpublished Sarge Steel story was found among Dick Giordano's papers. It was written by Steve Skeates, and it was from back in the Charlton days. Recently, the story was drawn up and published somewhere. Where?
Correct! Even though it's often seen as the smallest incarnation of the Legion, the E-P Legion has thousands of members. It has a sort of open membership and anyone who calls themselves a Legionnaire qualifies. Sort of a Mickey Mouse Club.
The most prominent Legionnaire to not be considered one of the main members is Theena.
Most of the "secondary" Legionnaires even camped out in the Legion Plaza.
My apologies, I handn’t really forgotten, I was just struggling for an original question.
What was the first animal, excluding cover art, that Gar Logan was ever depicted transforming into? On top of that, what was the first animal he transformed into chronologically after he was saved from sakutia?
What episode of a DCAU series features Bruce Timm and Eric Radomski as characters (the real people didn't do the voices, but the characters were modeled after them, were unnamed, and were more than just background characters)?
Aha. Because I really want to own the entire series on DVD but it’s ridiculously difficult to source where I am, I’ve only ever seen the first volume which I refuse to buy if I can’t get the rest.
Long story short, I either haven’t seen or can’t remember every episode since the originally aired when I was in primary school. I don’t think I ever saw ‘Harley and Ivy’ but I’m certain this will be the answer.
You are correct! While they did mention it in the (volume 3) commentary, one can probably tell by looking at them. I got the normally expensive complete series set at a fair price a while back, but even before that I owned the separate volumes. I honestly think that series is a great piece of art, as far as "children's" TV goes.
Th’ sound of rattlin’ shell cases on the ground minglin’ with th’ scream of yer victims to th’ beat of explodin’ frag genades is melodious, ‘cept when my head’s throbbin’ harder than li’l ‘Bo after another unsuccessful date with Darlene. Ain’t gonna placate nothin’.
Smoking? Pfft. ‘Bo’s only been baked twice before, and one of those was unintentional. What is it kids are supposedly doing these days? Tide pods? I mean, it involves pods, but there’s no tide in the big black.
Most of my recent questions (about TNT Trio, Sea Devils, "The War That Time Forgot", Green Lantern & Green Arrow and Mark Merlin) have been squarely Silver Age, so I'm not sure what you are talking about...
Okay, this is a two-part question but it’s the second part that counts. What is the first title outside of The Demon titles where Klarion appears as an antagonist, and more importantly, why is it anachronistic?
I don't know what you would call it, really. At the time of publication, there was nothing wrong with it at all. Sure, Klarion appeared in Wonder Woman #280 with no explanation of how he got out of the Beyond Region, but that happens with villains all the time, even today. Then, in Demon Vol 3 we find out that Klarion was in the Beyond Region all this time, and the Wonder Woman appearances couldn't really happen. But the Wonder Woman appearances had already been invalidated by the post-Crisis reboot of Wonder Woman, so no harm no foul I say...
The Haunted Tank was about a WWII American tank crew helped out by the ghost of Civil War General J.E.B. Stuart. It turns out the Germans also had a tank crew being helped by a ghost. Who was that ghost?
Carter Nichols summoned Batman and Robin to the past to stop the assassination of the real Baron Frankenstein by a greedy relative via the Baron’s very own chemically-controlled, hulking manservant. Once the Dynamic Duo twarted the evil plans they continued to mess around with the fragile flow of time and regaled a young Mary Shelly, who they just happened to encounter, with their tale.
When Mon-El was finally cured of lead poisoning and freed from the Phantom Zone, he applied for Legion of Super-Heroes membership under the name Marvel Lad. But he was also using another name too. What was that second alias?
Some of us old-timers remember the "He'll Always Be Mon-El To Me" filk song.... 
Who was the first DC hero to graduate from high school?
(To clarify: By "first" I mean first in terms of publication, not first in the fictional DCU chronology. And this person has to be a published DC hero/heroine while in high school -- so a flashback to Alan Scott's high school graduation wouldn't count.)
Does the graduation have to be seen in a story? We all know the Earth-2 Robin must have graduated high school sometime (because he became a lawyer later), but I don't think the graduation was ever shown...
The graduation need not be shown, but it has to be at least mentioned. So the Earth-Two Dick Grayson doesn't count, because we can only infer that he graduated; it's at least theoretically possible that he took some kind of high-school equivalency test before going on to law school.
Sandy Hawkins was still a kid in all his Golden Age appearances. His first post-Golden Age appearance was in Justice League of America #113 (1974), in which it was revealed that he had been imprisoned since the Golden Age. So I don't think he ever graduated from high school; maybe he never even attended.
A flashback would count, as long as the character was a costumed hero/heroine in high school. So a flashback to Bruce Wayne's high school graduation doesn't count, not because it's a flashback, but because Bruce Wayne wasn't a costumed hero prior to graduating high school.
But whether or not it's a flashback, I'm looking for the first in publication date. For example, the Earth-Two Robin first appeared as an adult in Justice League of America #55 (August 1967). If his graduation had been mentioned or shown in a flashback in that issue (which it was not), then it would count as August 1967, even though theoretically that flashback might have taken place earlier than that.
To the best of my knowledge, Clark Kent's high school graduation was not shown or mentioned in the 1960s or earlier. I'm sure, if asked, the writers would have said that Clark Kent did finish high school, but we only saw Superboy in his school days, and Superman in his adult days. (There's at least one story set a bit later than the usual Superboy stories -- Superman #161, in which Ma and Pa Kent died -- but this story never says whether Clark and Lana are still in school.) If someone can point to a Clark Kent graduation referenced earlier than the graduation of the hero/heroine I have in mind, then that would count as a correct answer.
