This page gathers the information pertaining to Legion-related issues of both series entitled Secret Origins from the regular pages of the Legion Publication History. This includes one issue from the 1973-74 series (v1) and seven issues from the 1986-90 series (v2).

Note: Prior to publication of both the series represented here, DC published a one-shot issue in 1961 entitled DC Comics presents Secret Origins. Many sources consider that issue to be Secret Origins v1, with the two later series being v2 and v3.
