COUNTDOWN #6 (3/19/08)
ROLL CALL: Karate Kid, Una (Lightning Saga Legion)
It appears that Val is dead and his body is in stasis at Cadmus. Meanwhile, Una sets out with Buddy Blank into an Earth in the throes of morticoccus pandemic.
BITS OF LEGIONNAIRE BUSINESS: This Earth is not the same one from which our heroes started; on this Earth, Buddy Blank is a lab assistant at Cadmus.
Una explains that in the 31st century, medical nanites keep people healthy and, presumably, young enough for Legionnaires in their 20s and 30s to still be called "Boy," "Girl," "Kid," and such. (This idea, minus the nanites, was first proposed many years ago in the time of the classic Legion.)
