Happy Birthday, Pete Ross!

According to the 1976 DC Calendar, today is the birthday of Honorary Legionnaire Pete Ross.
Pete Ross was out camping one night when something happened between him and Clark Kent that changed his life forever. Pete wasn't trying to perv on Clark or anything...he just happened to look over. Pete couldn't believe what he wasn't what he had expected to see! Timid and shy Clark was taking off his clothes, trying not to show Pete his biggest secret, when the night sky was lit up by a flash of lightning. Suddenly, Pete could not un-see what Clark had accidentally shown him! For keeping quiet and being Superboy's "secret ally" for his entire life, Pete was given Honorary Legionnaire status.

Pete Ross is an Aquarius. Not a lot of good will come of thinking that your work is very important. This evening, logic will prevail, and, in a strange way, life will prove, for once, to be quite fair.

As an added extra, here is one of the few times Pete Ross actually helped the Legion out. From Adventure Comics #379. Art by Curt Swan and Jack Abel.
