The Legion tells Supergirl that they have chosen someone else for membership instead of her, but since there are no new members between this time and her successful second tryout, the Legion must be referring to Superboy himself, explaining why they didn't say his name or introduce him, since they try to recruit him next.

  • A young time-traveler from the 75th century who witnessed Superboy's failed initiation travels back to the 30th century to apply for membership as Anti-Lad, then manipulates the Legion into thinking that he also traveled back to the 20th century to weaken Superboy so he would fail his initiation test.

As the LSH searches for Dawnstar, they encounter a group of woolly mammoths brought to Metropolis through a time warp. Brainiac 5 discovers that antimatter is approaching Earth. Dawnstar (along with Superman of Earth-2 and Solovar of Gorilla City) is sent to the 30th century of the alternate timeline of Earth-1 known as the Great Disaster, where they meet Kamandi and protect the Monitor's machine from shadow demons. Meanwhile, the Legion is attempting to stop the antimatter from reaching Earth. While helping the Legion evacuate part of England, Legion reservist Kid Psycho is killed by antimatter. The antimatter threat ends when Earth-1 is placed along with Earth-2 into a protective netherverse created with the Monitor's death, an event that occurs throughout time. The Legionnaires are amongst the heroes of Earth-1 and Earth-2 gathered into the Monitor's satellite in 1985, where the threat of the Anti-Monitor is explained. The Legion witnesses strange time warps on Earth-1 and Earth-2, and Brainiac 5 realizes that the two universes are coming together as the vibrations separating them slow down, and that if they can't merge them properly, they'll both be destroyed. The Legion agrees to help fight the Anti-Monitor. As part of a mission to bring Earth-4, Earth-S, and Earth-X into the netherverse, Blok is sent to Earth-4, where he meets the Sentinels of Justice, who are manipulated by the Psycho Pirate. Afterward, the Legion returns to the 30th century. Note: As revealed in LSH #18, the Infinite Man has begun absorbing the energies of the Crisis at this time, which causes the Legion and most people of the 30th century to forget that the Crisis is occurring in their time at all. This explains why the Legion returns to their own time and stays for weeks before returning instead of continually remaining in the 20th century to help fight the Anti-Monitor there. [CRISIS #1-7]

Kid Psycho's last remains are sent to Shanghalla, the cemetery world, but the Legionnaires can't remember how he died. As antimatter destroys Takron-Galtos, the Legionnaires who arrive to help with the evacuation cannot remember where the antimatter comes from or who causes it. While most of its criminal population is evacuated to be held elsewhere, members of the Legion of Super-Villains and the Fatal Five are taken to Brainiac's ship to help conquer Earths 4, X, and S in 1985. Brainiac 5 inadvertently releases the Infinite Man, who has absorbed the energies of the Crisis in the 30th century. The Legion battles him, and the White Witch causes him to return all his power to the source of the Crisis, changing him back into the human Prof. Jaxon Rugarth. With the end of the Infinite Man, the people of the 30th century remember the Crisis again. Note: This story reveals that the whole universe of the 30th century has been struck by disastrous effects of the Crisis on Infinite Earths for the past few weeks, yet almost no one remembers it. [Legion of Super-Heroes v3 #18; “The Monitor Tapes,” Crisis on Infinite Earths #10]
  • The LSH note that the merging of the Earths has stopped after Supergirl's sacrifice, and Brainiac 5 vows to find a way to repair the damage caused by their overlapping.

The Spectre puts a stop to the Villain War, explaining to heroes and villains throughout time (including the LSH in the 30th century) that the Anti-Monitor still lives and has fled to the dawn of time. The LSH are among the heroes who travel to the dawn of time to battle the Anti-Monitor, while the Legion of Super-Villains and the Fatal Five are among the villains who try to stop Krona on Oa of 10 billion years ago from creating the multiverse and the antimatter universe. After a battle with the Anti-Monitor at the dawn of time, the LSH and the villains are returned to the 30th century. [CRISIS #8-10; “Crisis on Infinite Earths: The Villain War”]
  • September: At the end of time, the real Time Trapper takes a break from his chess game with Brainiac of 1985 to destroy Time Trapper II (the Controller posing as the Time Trapper since shortly before the wedding of Lightning Lad and Saturn Girl), who was taken from Takron-Galtos as it was destroyed. During a moopsball tournament as Rokk Krinn (Cosmic Boy), Garth Ranzz (Lightning Lad), and Imra Ardeen (Saturn Girl) are reunited, agents of the Time Trapper kidnap Garth and Imra's son Graym, but the Legionnaires are unable to summon the help of the LSH. The three Legionnaires obtain Rond Vidar's help at the Time Institute to travel to meet the Time Trapper using Vidar's Time Cube, while Lightning Lass (Ayla Ranzz) becomes suspicious over her brother's evasiveness. Arriving at the end of time, the three Legionnaires are captured by the Time Trapper's minions, and Garth is taken away. After three days of captivity, Rokk and Imra escape and find Graym, only to learn the Trapper wanted Garth all along. The Time Trapper tries to cause Garth to slip into madness by subjecting him to visions, then tells him the visions will end once he reveals the Legion's secrets to him. The Time Trapper brings Garth back in time years ago to the moment of his parents' death, which the Trapper causes. Then the Time Trapper's hourglass runs out, and the three Legionnaires with Graym automatically return to their own time. Note: The presence of Brainiac proves that this story takes place in the Earth-1 universe and is canonical. [Legionnaires Three #1-4]
  • October: Five LSH members (Chameleon Boy, Element Lad, Phantom Girl, Shrinking Violet, Ultra Boy) are abducted by a Controller to disable the warlike planet of Tyrraz (Tyr's homeworld), since these Legionnaires earlier destroyed a planet in Limbo where a Sun Eater was being built by a Controller in order to destroy Tyrraz. The five Legionnaires battle Tyr and then disable Tyrraz's star-drive that allows it to move through space, while the Controller remains on Tyrraz to ensure that the planet does not again become a threat. Meanwhile, Invisible Kid II has his teleportation power removed, Brainiac 5 becomes obsessed with learning Sensor Girl's identity, and Dream Girl and White Witch celebrate Halloween with several other Legionnaires.

Universo is posing as Vid-Gupta, Earth President Desai's aide. The Legionnaires help deliver the former Takron-Galtos prisoners to Labyrinth.
