Four pages from LEGION LOST 2...

They track down Doctor Scanlon to a cabin, where they give him a telepathic info-dump.

I don't read legion, so is there a normal member named Tyroc? Because I'm thinking of the infamous black Tyroc.

As far as I'm aware, that's him. I don't know what makes him infamous, however.

Tyroc's introduction into the Legion is seen as something of a not terribly high spot of the series. It wasn't enough that they had a black Legionnaire, it had to be a black Legionnaire who was from a sort of island Brigadoon, directly descended from escaped black slaves who had made a completely non-white culture for themselves in their islands pocket dimension and who inherently distrusted white folks. It was, I'm sure, all very well intentioned, but it didn't come across particularly well.

Ah, I knew about that. Yes, it wasn't a great introduction for the character.

And that is the extent of my knowledge of him. I actually thought he had been erased from continuity. That's why it seemed weird to me when I saw his name.

Gotcha. Nope, he stayed with the Legion for quite some time, IIRC.

And now he's dressed like that dude in Squadron Supreme whose look, in turn, is meant to call up Sly Stone in the reader's mind.

Still: better than the porno outfit.

He's wearing too many clothes. I have an interest/skin ratio.

He's particularly wearing too many clothes given that he originally dressed like this:

Oh, Mike Grell, how I love you....

You do realize though that Grell is on the record saying he meant that to be a stupid and awful design? (He wasn't keen on the manner of Tyroc's backstory and thought it was racist)

Well, yes, the black guy in these panels is Tyroc.

See, I thought Tyroc had been erased from continuity after that whole deal. Guess not.
