For the pets
This is yet another first in the history of the Legion (and for DC Comics as well) as it shows the introduction of the Legion of Super Pets. While this is of arbitrary importance to many, it does underline how ridiculous these stories can be. The Pets are assembled by the original three of the Legion of Super Heroes, but Lightning Lad, Saturn Girl and Cosmic Boy are not really necessary to the story here at all. Instead they are static characters once again, whose presence could have just as easily been any other. That is to say, that many of the early appearances of the Legion of Super Heroes have the characters acting as little more than random characters. It is therefore strange to consider how far they would go on their adventures from such directionless beginnings.
