IN September 1998, a poster of the DC Comics line-up was given out on the summer convention circuit. It included most of the company’s characters at the time, with the Legion represented by the three founders and Brainiac 5. Although the figures were small in comparison to the size of others, they were featured smack dab in the center of the poster.
    The image, drawn by Jerry Ordway and Karl Kesel, was subsequently released as a limited edition lithograph (250 copies) by the now-defunct Warner Bros Studio Store, and called Strength In Numbers. It was a name that would later also be used for at least two other DC Comics posters: a JLA one and the poster depicting the threeboot Legion.

    The artwork was milked for all its worth. It was repurposed as a poster for libraries to encourage reading, and was used as a 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle produced by the Warner Bros store, only this time the set was called Heroes of the DC Universe. In addition, the central part of the poster, featuring the Legionnaires, was excised for use as an American Library Association bookmark with the @your library branding, to promote DC Comics.
