All true but there's more to it than that (imo)...
Blok joined the Legion in LSH #272
Levitz returned to writing the book in LSH #282
I started reading the Legion with LSH #284
When Levitz took over he knew he had a huge universe to play with but also the responisbility to keep track of it.
Almost from the start, he had Blok seated in the archives room viewing Legion history. This lead to Blok being keenly aware of many things that the others either took for granted or just never thought of (like when Blok was the first to figure out that the rogue Green Lantern was a young Universo).
Blok was learning about the Legion the same time I was. This made him a kindred spirit and a great link to get me even more involved in Legion mythology.
