In light of certain developments in this month's WONDER WOMAN, I thought it might be interesting to go and dig up an old, potentially somewhat related SUPERBOY story from the hazy days of late '97, in which Kon teams up with the Legion, partners with Green Lantern, and tries very hard not to get his face melted.
Our story picks up when Kon, currenty being visited by a handful of Legion types, hears about a break-in at a local museum. The perp appears to be one of Kon's rogues, the Silver Sword (former curator of the very museum in question, until he got Origin Story'd into something roughly equivalent to the Metal Men and decided he would be The Hero of Hawaii instead of Kon - and no, the skeezy racial undertones here are never properly addressed). So over they all go to check it out.
Never split up! Fools.
See? What did I just say?
Between saving each other and protecting the rest of the museum, the heroes are unable to prevent Sword's escape. So the Legion kids bug out back to their own title, and Kon gets into a fight with his girlfriend which prompts him to go be all macho.
Standard throwdown ensues, and Kon manages to wrest the Spear back, but Silver Sword once again gets away.
Dun dun dun.
Meanwhile, elsewhere in the world, Kyle Rayner got a commission to do some watercolors of the Hawaiian landscape for a travel company. He gets tangled up in a minor super-fight within thirty seconds of his arrival, at which point he meets Kon and the two decide to hang for a bit - Kyle even offers to teach Kon how to draw.
They sit down to draw the idol, but Kon gets all exasperated that it takes him more than thirty seconds to master being an artist, and stomps off.
Very poor showing, boys.
And into the lava they go.
Kyle for the save!
By the time they get up to the rim, though, Pele and Silver Sword are elsewhere.
Again, standard combat ensues. Violent, dangerous combat, in which Kyle and Kon spend many more pages rescuing bystanders from lava flows than actually fighting Pele.
Thanks to Silver Sword's alignment issues, the boys get the upper hand and manage to beat Pele into submission.
