Ed's Notes: Oh, FFS. OK, for the record crap like THIS is why I didn't really want to write up the Legion of Superheroes Characters. Don't get me wrong, they was some cool characters. But for every Ultra Boy, Saturn Girl and Lightning Lass, you get garbage like Bouncing Boy, Matter-Eater Lad and Arm-Fall-Off boy. (No, I did NOT just make that up!) Call me a grouchy old crank with no sense of humor of fun in the comments if you like, but a good... Half? At least? (And that's being GENEROUS) ...of the LoS Characters are utter crap. Fucking Bouncing Boy. GMAFB. And go ahead now: Call me a grouchy old crank with no sense of humor of fun in the comments. It's a freebie.  I'm admitting to it.

First Appearance: Action Comics #276 (May, 1961)
