As with all stories related to the Super Sons, the question of which Earth serves as the setting looms large. Is the story taking place on Earth-1? Or is it, as Infinite Crisis would suggest, Earth-154? In either case, the story has little impact on Earth-1 continuity.

Princess Projectra and Saturn Girl return from a mission to find they have been replaced by Prince Projectur and Saturn Lad. Why has the Legion forgotten who they are? Mon-El is also sworn in as the new Legion leader.

This was the last issue of Action to regularly feature The Legion of Super-Heroes. From here, they would jump to Superboy #172.
