Keith Giffen did more damage to Legion with FYG than John Byrne ever did.
Heck, Levitz's lack of desire to adapt the Legion to the ten-emerging post-COIE DCU probably did more to damage the Legion than MoS did. Continuity could have easily been tweaked to where Clark had a past with the Legion between the time he left Smallville and when he made he saved the Space-plane in MoS#1.
Uhh, the fact is that Levitz and the LoSH crew did not know what Byrne was doing specifically. Hence why things went that way, not due to Levitz saying no. All Levitz said, as the LoSH writer, was he'd not have done what Byrne did as it crippled the LoSH at that point. LoSH was still working well.
