Week of 24 October 2007

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

COUNTDOWN #27 (10/24/07)
"Disasters Great & Otherwise"
ROLL CALL: Karate Kid, Una (Lightning Saga Legion)

Karte Kid, Una, Buddy Blank, and Buddy's grandson arrive in Bludhaven, and Darkseid plays with his d/o/l/l/s/ action figures.


"No Boys Allowed"
ROLL CALL: Bouncing Boy, Lightning Lad, Phantom Girl, Saturn Girl, Superman, Triplicate Girl

BITS OF LEGIONNAIRE BUSINESS: In the 31st century, the Amazons have settled on New Themyscira, formerly Jupiter's moon Io. They did a great job of terraforming.

Circe turns the boys into pigs: an echo of how she treated Odysseus' crew in The Odyssey.

In Superman #165 (11/1963), and adult Saturn Girl masqueraded as Circe. In ancient Greece, the real Circe turned a centaur bowman named Biron into Comet the Super-Horse, member of the Legion of Super-Pets. In the Giffbaum Legion, the director of the Earthgov police was named Circe, but whether she was supposed to be the same as the ancient Circe was never clear.
