Tales of the Legion of Super-Heroes in "The Stolen Super-Powers"
*The first to arrive at the clubhouse for the election meeting, Saturn Girl sees the arrival of a crystal capsule containing a mysterious message, which she reads and destroys. Later, she uses her mental powers to force each and every Legionnaire to vote for her, and then orders them to wear special medallions.

Saturn Girl then "tests" each Legionnaire, and suspends those who fail, which they all do in the face of their new leader's ridiculously harsh standards. Unknown to them, the special medallions enable her to duplicate their powers, and when the evil Zaryan the Conqueror attempts to attack the Earth, she is the only one left to stop him. However, Lightning Lad ignores his suspension and follows her. He destroys Zaryan's ship, but is struck by the villain's freeze ray at the same instant.

Saturn Girl brings the dying hero back to Earth, where he explains that Mon-El, watching from the Phantom Zone, had read the note she had received - one sent by aliens, whose computers had predicted that a Legionnaire would die in combat with Zaryan. She had then schemed to become the only one to face him, and thus sacrifice her life for her teammates. She would have succeeded, had not Mon-El telepathically revealed her plan to Lightning Lad.

Unable to join Mon-El in the Zone because of sunspot activity, Lightning Lad dies. *Source: The Official Legion of Super-Heroes Index #2 - Published by ICG.

(Note: Lightning Lad is later revealed to be in a death-like coma and not truly deceased.)
