Notes

  1. Circe is not to be confused with the sorceress Circe, who was a major adversary of Wonder Woman in the 20th and 21st centuries.
  2. Although initially believed to be a Khund, Flederweb's actual species and homeworld were never revealed.
  3. The Legion first battled Universo in Adventure Comics #349 (October 1966). In the following issue, Star Boy and Dream Girl rejoined the team under the aliases "Sir Prize" and "Miss Terious", but the two are not included in Batch SW6.
  4. Inferno's Legion membership status is debatable, as she was a Workforce member accidentally stranded in the 20th century with a group of Legionnaires in Legion of Super-Heroes vol. 4, #84–85 (September–October 1996). She leaves the group in Legion of Super-Heroes vol. 4, #96 (September 1997), and does not accompany them when they return to the 30th century four issues later.
