> This definitely looks like a screw up. Supes clearly had full memories of his time with the Legion based on how he acted during "Lightning Saga", he even recounted the story of the original lightning ceremony to bring back Lightning Lad. Even after "Lightning Saga" he went to see Starman to try and get some answers, so the LSH didn't wipe his memory or anything before they left. So, Brainy having to do anything to his memory seems...off. The only thing I can see is that maybe Action takes place after the Supes/Bats arc where Darkseid messes with Supes's mind :-?.

I think that Superman just didn't initially recognize Brainy because he was older. Brainiac referred to the thing as memory analysis. Perhapps he was merely making sure that this was the right superman from the right earth at the right moment in time.

I read it as Superman forgetting the Legion at first too, but at a second glance, it looked more ambiguous.

Lord Majestros:
The Legion members that Supes encountered during "Lightning Saga" all come from the same point in time that Brainiac 5 does and Supes recognized all of them. Brainy doesn't look any more different than any of them. Meh, it's not a big deal I guess.
