About this timeline

The third volume of Legion of Super-Heroes ceased publication with issue Legion of Super-Heroes v3 #63, with the conclusion of the Magic Wars. The fourth volume of Legion of Super-Heroes began with Legion of Super-Heroes v4 #1, set five years later. Although events during those five years were referenced and some key events shown in flashback, much of this time remains undocumented.

Based on 2995: The Legion of Super-Heroes Sourcebook, text pages in the comics themselves, and mentions in the comics stories themselves, this article attempts to list the events that occurred during these five years. This timeline uses the years used in the comics, with the events in Legion of Super-Heroes v4 #1 occurring in late 2994. Events occur after the timeline is changed due to the events in the Mordruverse.
