Some powers, while effective, I can totally understand why they wouldn’t want to make you a part of the regular Legion… Take Infectious Lass, whose power is to give you some random disease by touching you.

The current incarnation of Night Girl, who is training heroes at the Legion Academy, as drawn by Amanda Conner.
I know a lot of the Substitute Legion’s powers were joke powers, but being super-strong in the dark always seemed pretty useful to me, especially after Shadow Lass came along. They seem like a perfect pair to send out together ALL THE TIME!
Original Night Girl with her beehive hairdo and outfit is STILL probably my favorite incarnation.
I’m sure I can’t be the only one who usually identified more with the Legion of Substitute Heroes than the regular Legion.
Here we have Fire Lad, Polar Boy, Night Girl, Stone Boy (LOVED his power) and Chlorophyll Kid.
