SUPERGIRL LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES #19 (8/06)
A 31st Century Whodunnit!
ROLL CALL: Chameleon, Cosmic Boy, Lightning Lad, Star Boy, Supergirl, Timber Wolf
Most of this issue is taken up with a clever locked-room mystery story starring Chameleon and the Science Police.
Meanwhile, Supergirl encounters Theena and finds that Seiss (the Calamity Kid analog from a few issues back) is nowhere to be found. And Brainiac 5 has vanished, taking both Lemnos and Dream Girl’s body with him.
BITS OF LEGIONNAIRE BUSINESS:
A classic exchange among kids in Legion Plaza as Supergirl flies by: “Looksky! Birdplane!” “Dude, what’s a ‘birdplane’?”
In the same panel there’s a stand for “Morlo’s Fast Food” -- a clear reference to Doctor Mantis Morlo, an old-time Legion adversary.
