“I … we … loved you!”
Romance flourishes early on in the Legion, the only super-group within the comics landscape of the time in which the members frequently held “kissing parties” and routinely dated within the ranks.
When a misunderstanding and teenage tempers cause a rift between the Legion and its unofficial, subordinate cavalry in The Legion of Substitute Heroes, it’s one-time Legion reject Night Girl who attempts to mend the wounds between the two teams. Here, she pours out her heart to Legion co-founder Cosmic Boy, her eyes brimming with tears as she balks at confessing her love. To his credit, Cosmic Boy is like “Dur okay whatevs lol bye.” What a guy!
