Legion of Super-Heroes Volume 1 - Paul Levitz and Steve Crow

The first volume is the monster manual, giving the usual approximately 60-40 or so hero to villain ratio, but some assorted NPCs.

There's an introduction and timeline of Legion history to the time.  Then the Legion, the villains and the related characters of importance and allies.
A few pages of new powers, some options and a couple of combat options in Parrying and Bracing.  Then a few pages of beasts, including the fabled Lightning variety and the Space Dragons of Imsk. A couple of pages on aliens, law enforcement. The last few pages are a 'GM Section' of the Legion compiled in stat blocks so they are all togethers in alphabetical order sans writeups.  So an even denser great value book if they used that space for more characters, or you count the doubles.

Probably the best value DCH sourcebook.
