Issue background colours

These relate to issue entries, e.g.:

  • Endless Summer
    • W: Roger Stern, Tom McCraw; P: Jeff Moy; I: W.C. Carani; C: Tom McCraw; L: Pat Brosseau; E: Mike McAvennie, Frank Berrios (Assistant Editor); "Adult Legionnaire" [Script Assistant]: Carmela Merlo

White, as in the Legionnaires #77 example, denotes a "normal" issue - i.e., an issue of a Legion title, or a significant guest appearance, which follows the era denoted by the year/etc header.

Other background colours, such as the grey behind Superboy's Legion #1, derive from the heading colours above:

Preboot (Pre-Crisis) Preboot (Post-Crisis) Preboot (5YL) Preboot (Retro) Preboot (Post-Flashpoint) Reboot (Post-ZH) Reboot (Earth-247) Threeboot (Earth-Prime) Elseworlds Cartoon (DCAU) Cartoon (LSH)
