LSH(5) #13

(SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers. Don't read it before you've read the comic.)

LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES (v. 5) #13 (2/06)
(L 2006-2)

ROLL CALL: Brainiac 5, Chameleon, Colossal Boy, Cosmic Boy, Dream Girl, Element Lad, Karate Kid, Light Lass, Lightning Lad, Phantom Girl, Princess Projectra, Saturn Girl, Shadow Lass, Star Boy, Sun Boy, Timber Wolf, Triplicate Girl, Ultra Boy

The end of the Terror Firma storyline comes with an all-out battle between the Legion and the bad guys. Some awfully nice touches here and there, as when Ultra Boy finally gets "Micro Lad's" name right, Star Boy using his power to make air too heavy to breathe, Triplicate Girl's nickname ("Trip"), and Light Lass's line, "So you're planning on a water landing, them...?"

After saving the day, Sun Boy resigns from the Legion in order to stay with the super-powered kids of Terror Firma. Personally, I'd like to believe that he has a crush on the cute blond guy with the dark shades....

The story ends with a hint that Dream Girl might be saved after all.

LSH (v. 5) #13 (2/06)
(L 2006-2a)
The Hours

ROLL CALL: Brainiac 5, Dream Girl, Element Lad, Saturn Girl, Shadow Lass, Star Boy, Ultra Boy

A short, artful story tracing Dream Girl's premonitions in the three hours before her death. An interesting look into the psychological world of a precognitive.

LSH (v. 5) #13 (2/06)
(L 2006-2b)

ROLL CALL: Karate Kid, Polar Boy, Shadow Lass

Another out-of-continuity Letter Column (like the one in LSH (v. 5) #6, this time featuring Karate Kid, Shadow Lass, and the (brief) return of Polar Boy.

Despite the teaser, there appears to be no LSH presence so far in Infinite Crisis...just a few cameos.
