The Legion’s next major appearance in a calendar was in 1996, when DC published its FINAL NIGHT series, in which the heroes and citizens of Earth faced impending demise as the Sun-Eater, which first appeared in a Legion story, threatened to extinguish their Sun, therefore creating the planet’s final night.
   As a prelude to the series, DC Comics released a Final Night calendar … an advent calendar of sorts which allowed retailers to reveal scenes from the series weekly in the countdown to the first issue. An exclusive story previewing the crisis was featured in the calendar, which showed Superman and members of the Legion discussing the menace of the Sun-Eater.
