You're welcome. Glad you enjoyed it.

    If you go to minute 45, Keith says that taking Superman out of legion history was entirely the Powers that be, not him.


Yes, but they took Superman away from the book *because* of him. He says it himself: "It got so fractious that they said 'That's it'"!

Editorial were quite happy with Levitz' solution. And they never said 'You can never even mention Superboy again'. The Crisis hits in issues 16-18 (Nov 85 - Jan 86), the pocket universe/Death of Superboy occurs in #37 and 38 (Aug/Sept 87). Even after that, Superboy is used as the motivation for the battle with the Time Trapper in issue 50 (Sept 88), and his statue shows up in the Hall of Heroes in #59 (Apr 89).

No, I hold Giffen fully responsible for the horrors of Five Years Later.
