History

(Legion of Super-Heroes III #14) - The Dark Circle left behind a few members on Earth to commit acts of sabotage. An Ontiir clone used his weapon-chair to destroy the bridges and drainage systems that kept the California Costal District afloat. The Legion of Super-Heroes was holding a membership drive, and took several prospective members to California to investigate. Dev-Em of the U.P.’s Counter-Intelligence Corps was also on the scene, and with the help of telepath Tellus they found the Ontiir clone. The clone set off another destructive device that caused a tidal wave. Mon-El used his heat vision to evaporate the tidal wave while his teammates tried to pierce the clone’s forcefield. Quislet, an adventurer from a microscopic dimension flying in a miniatures Trans-D Vessel, joined the fray in an attempt to impress the Legion. Quislet could animate inanimate matter, and took control of the clone’s weapon-chair, using it to defeat him. Quislet returned to his Vessel, and the weapon-chair crumbled to dust, as was usually the case for any matter Quislet possessed.
