Week of 30 January 2008

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

COUNTDOWN #13 (1/30/08)
"Abandon All Hope"

No Legion content in this issue.


ACTION #861 (3/08)
"Chameleons (Superman and the Legion of Super-Heroes Part 4)
ROLL CALL: Brainiac 5, Colossal Boy, Dawnstar, Polar Boy, Sun Boy, Superman, Wildfire, Yera (Chameleon Girl) (all Lightning Saga Legion)
JUSTICE LEAGUE OF EARTH: Earth-Man, Eyeful Ethel, Golden Boy, Radiation Roy, Spider Girl, Storm Boy, Tusker

BITS OF LEGIONNAIRE BUSINESS: This issue directly ties into the Lightning Saga. And there's an interesting bit of foreshadowing, when Superman asks about the lightning rod that the Legionnaires brought back from the 21st century and Brainy answers, "The universe is missing a key figure to activate it. Dream Girl's last vision before she returned to Naltor told me it had to wait. Until the Crisis of the 31st century begins." (Me, I figure if Dreamy went back to Naltor, then it might be a good time to get away from Earth...)

Earth-Man absorbs all the powers of the Legionnaires, becoming a one-man Legion...something like the Composite Superman way back when.

Yera has a code name now -- Chameleon Girl. Does this mean she's a Legionnaire? Couldn't blame her...
