Week of 27 August 2008

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

"One World, Under Gog Part III: War Lords"
ROLL CALL: Starman/Star Boy (Lightning Saga Legion)

BITS OF LEGIONNAIRE BUSINESS: Thom is looking more confident, and he's also taken off his hood. Not sure where they're going with this, but sanity seems to agree with him.


"Enemy Manifest Part 1: Monster in Our Midst"
ROLL CALL (Teenage Revolution Legion): Atom Girl, Brainiac 5, Chameleon, Colossal Boy, Element Lad, Invisible Kid, Light Lass, Lightning Lad, M'Rissey, Night Girl, Phantom Girl, Princess Projectra, Saturn Girl, Shadow Lass, Star Boy, Timber Wolf, Ultra Boy

BITS OF LEGIONNAIRE BUSINESS: Lightning Lad calls Element Lad "El" -- I believe this is the first time this particular nickname has been used. In previous continuity, he's usually called "Jan"

Among those in line at the United Planets Young Heroes auditions are Night Girl, possibly Insect Queen, and a guy with hair reminiscent of Atmos.

Saturn Girl and Ultra Boy are caught in flagante delicto at the end of the issue. This echoes LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES #289 (7/1982). in which an innocent Saturn Girl and Timber Wolf were discovered in a tender moment. Interestingly, that issue also featured another parallel with the current issue: a budding romantic relationship between Colossal Boy and Shrinking Violet. Of course, we later learned that she was Yera, not Vi.

Finally, on a personal note: I've spent the last week and a half recovering from neck surgery, and one o' them bio-repair tanks would be a great thing to have. Just in case someone has a spare one lying around....
