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.

LSH #313 - Technically this Giffen design comes after the red & blue pajamas.

LSH #51 - Giffen dumps the shoulder pad design and gets Blok back in trunks only.

LSH #52 - Giffen dumps the shorts in favor of more pajamas and the belt pouch fad. Also the genesis of the the shoulder nodules

LSH #56 - Eduardo Barreto takes the nodules to volcanic proportions

LSH #4 - Keith Giffen shows us the 5YG Blok with more mutations and no pants

LSH #4 - Keith Giffen shows us the 5YG with no more life

BTW - Blok's death should not be attributed to Giffen or the Bierbaums. Mark Waid was the editor of those early 5YG issues and he just never liked Blok (or really any post Silver-aged Legionnaire). This is why we don't see Blok, Dawny, Tyroc, Quislet, White Witch in either Waid's two reboots (except in a comic book). If anyone is to take the title "prick" in Blok's death - it's Waid.


White Witch showed up in the Threeboot as a Wanderer.

See the problem with the Threeboot? No one remembers it or cares too. :P
