I'm not much of a DC reader so my information about all things DC is not really extensive. I HAVE been reading the Teen Titans since the Johns relaunch. So if there are three different Legions, two of which we can identify for sure, could someone fill me in on which Legion Superboy (Conner Kent) was a member of in Teen Titans (right before the original Titans of Tomorrow arc?)

> Jim Shooter is going to be using Mark Waid's Legion. He's been very upfront about that. Geoff Johns is using a variation of the Silver Age Legion, only it seems that he is skipping certain details. Not that long ago, it was revealed that there is a Legion adventure known as "The Legion Of Three Worlds". Meaning that there are three versions of the Legion. The one that Clark has grown up knowing. The one that Supergirl knows. And one more. In Action Comic #850, the Waid Legion is surprised that Superman is a member. But that is because he was with the Silver Age/Geoff Johns Legion.

That was the post "Zero Hour" Legion. They were the result of the Legion from an earlier point in time, meeting with the Legion crica 1990, when M'Onel/Lar Gand/Valor replaced Superboy/Clark Kent/Kal-El as the inspiration for the Legion. The two merged during "Zero Hour" and when the book picks up again, we see a new continuity. In this time, the Legion comes to the 20th Century to help out a young Lar Gand, who has amnesia and was being used as a prize fighter. He takes on Superboy/Kon-El/Conner Kent. Once exposed to lead, Lar begins to remember and is put in the Stasis Zone used by Superman villian Loophole. It is later revealed to be the Phantom Zone. The Legion frees and cures Lar, who goes back to the 30th Century. This Legion was in existence before the Waid version.

It is possible that this is the other Legion, but it could be a brand new one. Or one based off an Elseworlds' tale.
