Zero Hour Strikes! Legion - End of an Era

Legion - End of an Era is a big chunk of what makes Zero Hour important, as the future holds some of the most important impacts of the event. Join Bass and Siskoid as they cover Legionnaires #17-18, Valor #22-23, and Legion of Super-Heroes #60-61. It's the end of the Five Years Later era, but really, it's the end of something that started way back in 1958!

Highlights from Legion - End of an Era:
In Legionnaires #17, the time anomalies accelerate and Brainiac 5 wears a costume that confounds Bass.
As Silver Age villains appear, Urtho gets the hate punched out of him
In Valor #22, the Legion's powerhouses pull the Time Trapper's pocket dimension Earth into our space!
Only Valor's love for Shadow Lass keeps her from being erased from history.
In LSH #60, all the Legionnaires assemble to rescue Rokk Krinn from Glorith and Mordru.
Leviathan, the young Colossal Boy, does not make it.
In Legionnaires #18, the top of the page has all the action with evil Legionnaires, the bottom has the quiet bits with Cosmic Boy learning across several lifetimes.
In Valor #23, Rokk Krinn learns the truth... that he grows up to be the Time Trapper!
Shadow Lass dies and passes from history, and Valor soon does too.
In LSH #61, adult and SW6 Legionnaires merge to save the future... or some version of it.
Because there's no escaping Zero Hour, and we close decades of history where it all began... I'M NOT CRYING, YOU'RE CRYING!
