The latest issue of Legion of Super-Heroes, #13, has a short note at the end:
Cast your vote for the Legion’s Leader! All active members (except those LOST in the 21st Century) are eligible. Send your vote to
New York, NY 10019
Final date for ballots: November 16, 2012!
The tradition of fans selecting the Legion Leader was first established in 1968 in Adventure Comics #364 (as reported here), with 7,810 readers voting and the winner, Ultra Boy, announced in issue #368. They continued on and off through the series history, with the most recent elections held online in October 2010. Here are some reactions from that time of who’s voting for whom and why. My favorite reason is “to make things difficult for the writer”.
Strangely, they’re apparently not allowing electronic voting this year.
