Happy Birthday, Shadow Lass!

According to the 1976 DC Calendar, today will be the birthday of Tasmia Mallor, better known throughout the galaxy as Shadow Lass. (Sometime between her debut and her Who's Who profile in 1985 she changed her spelling from "Malor" to "Mallor." Another one of those double-L things?)
Shadow Lass was the 25th member of the Legion of Super-Heroes. She served with distinction for nearly ten years.
Shadow Lass is an Aquarius. She would like to confide in a wise person, but she's not sure she knows someone she can trust. She should reach outside her circle to a stranger who has nothing to gain or lose by advising her.

As an extra bonus, here's a scene where Shadow Lass teams with Night Girl to take down some crooks. (Legion of Super-Heroes #212 with art by Mike Grell)


  1. You know, the Legion is, by far, large enough a group that the rule that there should be at least one pair of characters who by chance have the same birthday apply. It'll be interesting to see if, when the whole first cycle concludes about a year and a month from now (because of that one, yeah), there are any two who share a birthday other than the twins...

  2. Jeff, interesting that you say that. Looking at the whole 1976 DC calendar where the majority of these birthdays were listed, and then combining those dates with the LSH Handbook that the Bierbaums issued in the Nineties, there are NO characters who share a birthday. In the entire DC Universe! So a little bit of cheating going on there, I think...! Thanks for posting!
