Week of 5 November 2008

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

"The Worst Night of His Life"
ROLL CALL: Tellus (Lightning Saga Legion?)

Some time ago, Jim Harper broke into a Cadmus facility in Salem, NH. There, he saw the Legionnaire Tellus floating in a stasis tank. Tellus telepathically told him not to worry, the Science Police would come.

"Earth Bound"
ROLL CALL: Starman/Star Boy (Lightning Saga Legion)

Thom explains how he can make black holes and open portals to other universes (if "explains" is the word I'm groping for here): "My ability to increase gravity and even manifest miniature black holes allows me to not only travel through time, but to other parallel worlds." Uh...right. And his uniform, which "was designed by three Brainiac 5's," is a map to the (new) multiverse.

Designed by three Brainiac 5's, eh? And when, exactly, did this happen? So far as we know, the three Brainys have only been together twice: once during the original "Legion of Three Worlds" untold adventure, and currently during the "Legion of Three Worlds" miniseries. But Thom's arrival in the 21st century predates the beginning of the current L3W series...doesn't it? So did the three Brainys design Thom's uniform during the untold adventure? Or did this version of Thom originate from during or after the current L3W series? Oh, man, time travel makes my head hurt!
