Mon-El Slurpee Cup

Real Name: Lar Gand
Born on the planet Daxam, Lar had amnesia when he reached Earth. Since he had powers like Superboy's, the Boy of Steel thought he was from Krypton and named him Mon-El.

Chameleon Boy Slurpee Cup

Chameleon Boy

Like all people of the planet Durla, Reep can change his shape and color to resemble anything or anybody. He uses this ability in the Legion of Super-Heroes, where he leads the Espionage Squad.

There are also Slurpee cups featuring Superboy and Supergirl, although the text on the back of the cups does not mention their memberships in the Legion.
Superboy Slurpee Cup

Secret Identity: Clark Kent, student at Smallville High
When Superman was a boy, he first fought crime as Superboy in Smallville. It was then that he developed the character of Clark Kent--timid, so he could run away when danger threatened--and switch to his super-identity.

Supergirl Slurpee Cup

Secret Identity: Linda Lee Danvers, student advisor at New Athens Experimental School, in Florida.
When the planet Krypton exploded, one city survived under a plastic dome--and there Kara, Superman's cousin, was born. When Kryptonite wiped out the city, she was sent to Earth, and here she became Supergirl.

A checklist of all the DC Comics Slurpee cups is available.
