This story is reprinted from Adventure Comics #324.

Marden King -- brother deceased Jungle-King a rejected Legion applicant -- is plotting revenge against the Legion over his brothers death. Locating the planet Lallor, he learns that a nuclear explosion on that world had granted five of it's young people with super powers. However, the leader of Lallor, fearing what the young people could do has them exiled from the planet.

Seizing this opportunity, Marden contacts the space-bound Heroes of Lallor and convinces them to go after the Legion of Super-Heroes, whom he convinces the Heroes of Lallor that they are evil. This is all a plot to get a hold of the Legion's clubhouse and the scientific devices therein. While this initially succeeds, both groups of super-teens learn the truth.

When the Heroes of Lallor try to stop Marden, he threatens them with a device that will eliminate their powers. However, the timely intervention of Superboy foils this plot.

During a regular meeting of the Legion of Super-Heroes (where Brainiac 5 unveils new flight rings for the Legion to replace their flight belts), the attending members are interrupted by the arrival of Bizarro Superboy. Bizarro Superboy has come to the 30th Century seeking membership in the Legion of Super-Heroes. Naturally, the Legion rejects him from their ranks and he returns to his home world.

Using his duplicator machine, he creates Bizarro versions of Lightning Lad, Saturn Girl, Invisible Kid, Chameleon Boy, Cosmic Boy, Ultra-Boy, and Mon-El to be his Bizarro-Legion.

As with anything Bizarro, the Bizarro-Legion is a perverted "opposite" version of the actual Legion of Super-Heroes. The group goes out into space and completes missions that are considered good in terms of Bizarro logic, but causes nothing but chaos. When confronted by the real Legion, who demands they disband. Bizarro Superboy decides to agree on one condition: That the real Superboy crush a large diamond into coal. Superboy surprisingly is able to accomplish this feat, and the Bizarro-Legion now "rich" in coal, agrees to disband and return to Bizarro-World. Afterwards when the Legion is confused as to how Superboy was able to turn diamond back into coal, Element Lad reveals that he gave them a helping hand in order to trick the Bizarro's into disbanding their Legion.
