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.

Here's what is said.


Brainiac 5: "I apologize KZZT the memory charge. I needed to KZZT the time diver traveled to KZZT proper vibrational plane."

Brainy was afraid that his time diver would wind up in an alternate timeline where Superman had not met the Legion yet or at all. Remember in Action Comics #850, the Legion that Supergirl was with has no memory of ever meeting Superman. And when Brianic 5 attempted to scan the past for Superman's life, they came across various timeline variations of Superman's life. He said that there was bleed over. Both versions of Brainiac 5 are aware of the differences.
