This page gathers the information pertaining to Legion-related issues of all series entitled Starman from the regular pages of the Legion Publication History. This includes one issue from the 1988-92 series (v1) and eleven issues from the 1994-2001 series (v2). In the second series, six of the "appearances" have no interior content, but the covers combine to form a large poster of the various characters who have taken the name Starman over the years, including what appears to be an adult "Otherworlds" Star Boy.
