In Legion of 3 Worlds #4: Dirk Morgna finally comes back as Sun Boy in the most dramatic fashion, saving Brek Polar Boy before he gets killed by the ultimate prima donna Superboy Prime. Superman, Cosmic Boy, Saturn Girl, and Lightning Lad are all scooped up by the Time Trapper into his dimension or something, and a fight ensues. Dawnstar and Wildfire return from the past with a strand of Lex Luthor’s hair, which the 3 Brainiacs input into the Kryptonian Chrysalis to herald the return of Superboy, the 90’s version who is a joint clone of Luthor and Superman (in a weird in-vitro gay way), one of the four Supermen who came back after Superman’s death at the hands of Doomsday in Superman #75. Superboy, of course, died in Infinite Crisis #6 in 2005, which was quickly followed by the death of Bart Allen in the short-lived Flash, the Fastest Man Alive because he sucked as The Flash, and which is only noteworthy because Bart Allen is also resurrected in Legion of 3 Worlds #3! All of these resurrections seem to be interesting, except for the fact that I have no love for these characters. Still, Geoff Johns proves that he is the master of tugging at our collective geek hearts when he reveals in the shockingest final panel of them all that the Time Trapper, who has been The Legion of Superheroes’ ultimate foe for more than fifty years, is none other than the aged version of Superboy Prime!!!!! Eeeeeeeek!
