    Some guy: I don't believe there are people out there. In Genesis, it says God created the firmament. It doesn't say anything about him putting people in it. If you think there are people up there, explain why they have never contacted us.
    Eddie Campbell: There are people in the next street who have never contacted us!!

    The guy obviously wants to do comics badly but isn't talented enough to actually do them.

    You will cast an Ectothere-spell that will cover every food distribution center... a spell causing all who eat the food to become weak, indifferent, and easily conquered!

    You've got nothing to be ashamed of. My knees weaken when I look at you.

    LETTER WRITER: And lastly, when is my torturous thirst for Chemical King [...], absent for about 100 issues now, going to be slated?
    EDITOR: [...]Chemical King will be back in #227, in a story entitled "To War No More."
    --An exchange from the letter column of Superboy #225. I don't expect that this fan was very satisfied with #227, given that Chemical King died in that issue.

    Continuing with the Legion lettercolumn theme:

    I don't think there is enough romance in the Legion. The Legionnaires always seem so serious. Since they are teenagers, they must go on some dates. -Nancy Scott, Stuart, Fla.

    (Sure they go on dates - especially Triplicate Girl, who sometimes goes on three at a time! -Ed.)
    --From the letter column of Adventure Comics #329. Forty years later, that last statement would be confirmed in Legion of Super-Heroes vol. 5 #3.
