(SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers. Don't read it before you've read the comic.)
LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES #46 (11/08)
"Imperatrix: Enemy Manifest Part 2"
ROLL CALL: Brainiac 5, Chameleon, Element Lad, Invisible Kid, Light Lass, Lightning Lad, M'Rissey, Phantom Girl, Princess Projectra, Saturn Girl, Star Boy, Timber Wolf, Ultra Boy
BITS OF LEGIONNAIRE BUSINESS:
Phantom Girl is reading ACTION COMICS #242 (7/1958). That issue featured the introduction of Brainiac and the Bottle City of Kandor. Not-so-coincidentally, ACTION COMICS in 2008 is currently running a multi-part series that updates this story. (The other comic next to Phantom Girl is GREEN LANTERN #85 (9/1971).
Although Chameleon is supposed to be genderless this time around, Brainy refers to Cham as "he."
The new Legion costumes came from "Carmine's Actionwear." This is probably a reference to the legendary Carmine Infantino, who designed the costumes of the Silver Age Flash as well as many, many others.
