ADVENTURE COMICS - #357 (1967 - VF)
💥 CLASSIC SILVER AGE ISSUE!
Superboy, Princess Projectra, Sun-Boy, and Cosmic Boy travel to Shanghalla, the asteroid that is the final resting place for heroes all over the universe to pay their respect to their fallen comrade Ferro Lad. As they are doing so, a strange object in space flies to the Legion of Super-Heroes club house and embeds itself into the central control panel. When the Legion returns to their club house afterward, Superboy asks to be left alone and sends the others back to their homes.
Let alone in a trophy room commemorating Ferro Lad, Superboy recalls how Ferro Boy grabbed the device that Superboy was going to use to destroy the Sun-Eater and sacrificed himself to destroy the creature. Guilt ridden, Superboy wonders if he subconsciously allowed for Ferro Lad to die not wishing to sacrifice himself. Cosmic Boy's thoughts are also full of guilt over Ferro Lad's demise making him unable to focus on playing with his brother or concentrate on anything. That night as he sleeps Cosmic Boy is haunted with visions of Ferro Lad accusing all the members of the Legion for allowing him to die.
At 3 in the morning Cosmic Boy is awoken by Sun Boy who has picked up a distress call at the Clubhouse. Rushing there with Sun Boy and Princess Projectra, they find that Superboy is being attacked by an unseen force that is causing items to levitate and strike him. Chief among these items is a chunk of green Kryptonite that threatens to kill the Boy of Steel. The Legion members attempt to stop the objects, destroying the Kryptonite in the process. Going to his weakened friend Cosmic Boy learns to his horror that Superboy was apparently attacked by the ghost of Ferro Lad. Suddenly one of their machines explodes and after the smoke clear they find a written warning from the ghost of Ferro Lad, vowing to get revenge for his death.
