Strange ad: That issue was the end of the Legion's series in Adventure. Supergirl took over their spot the following month. So you would think that the next issue would be more appropriate for the "new excitement" blurb. But using it for this issue, it reads like "OK, OK, we're getting rid of the Legion! Happy now?"
