ACTION #863 (5/08)
"Superman and the Legion of Super-Heroes Chapter 6: Sun Rise"
ROLL CALL: Blok, Brainiac 5, Chameleon Girl, Colossal Boy, Cosmic Boy, Dawnstar, Lightning Lad, Lightning Lass, Night Girl, Phantom Girl, Polar Boy, Saturn Girl, Shadow Lass, Shrinking Violet, Sun Boy, Superman, Timber Wolf, Tyroc, Ultra Boy, Wildfire
Great story. The double-page spread of the approaching Legion, with Superman's line "I've got the real deal," brought a chill to my spine. Yes, as far as I'm concerned, this Lightning Saga Legion is "the real deal" -- the classic Legion that started in Adventure 247.
And Ultra Boy's line to Terra Man ("Then who's gonna watch your back, jackass?") really sums up what the Legion's all about.
BITS OF LEGIONNAIRE BUSINESS: In the impending attack on Earth, the Imskians have "subatomic weapons."
Superman makes reference to the Magic War -- the last story before the Five Year Gap, which could be considered the last tale of the classic Legion.
