The main story here is so bad that one might think that it came from the golden age. It has a lot of staples of that time, including loss of powers, being kicked out of a team of super heroes and malfunctioning robots. Even by the poor standards of most of these early appearances of the Legion, this one is pretty weak. The logic behind the story falls apart completely at the end when the protagonist has to explain himself to the other heroes, including the deductions which he has made. It makes for a poor performance overall.
