Dorfman, Swan and Roussos bring back the Superman Revenge Squad in Action 380 (Sept. 69).
The pair who execute this plan actually have to win a competition first, on what appears to be a small planet full of Revenge Squad members. It’s a popular club. They come to Earth, and begin to mess with Superman, making him think he is performing destructive acts in his sleep.
In fact, it is the two Revenge Squad members who are doing this, while giving Clark red kryptonite induced nightmares.
The female member impersonates Supergirl, lying to Superman about a test he undergoes to see if he is being affected by red kryptonite. Superman is left believing himself to be guilty of their crimes.
The story concludes in the next issue.
Duo Damsel is the focus of this month’s Legion of Suepr-Heroes story, by Shooter, Mortimer and Abel.
Luornu Durgo splits into her two selves, sending one on a mission, while the other hangs and relaxes with Bouncing Boy. The one who left takes an awful long time coming back, and when she does, it is on the arms of Nam-Lor.
The second body starts using a different name, Leilith, and her behaviour has changed. Luornu suspects something is wrong, and discusses this with Bouncing Boy. The two wind up confronting Leilith and Nam-Lor, catching them in the middle of a theft. Luornu finds she cannot even merge with Leilith.
The story comes to a genuinely surprising conclusion. Leilith orders Nam-Lor to kill Bouncing Boy, but he refuses. We discover that Nam-Lor has, among other powers, a “hyper-aura” that has driven Leilith to become a violent criminal. he has reluctantly gone along with her, but hates the person he has turned her into. Nam-Lor leaves.
The story ends, just when it gets very interesting. I want to see how the two Duo Damsels interact now, but it’s over. In later years, more would be made of the “darker” body of Duo Damsel, and it’s not too long after this that she adopts a new costume, which gives each body a different colour.
