ACTION #874 (4/09)
ROLL CALL: Mon-El
Mon-El is released from the Phantom Zone bare moments before the Zone is consumed by a white void. Lar collapses in Superman's arms -- some would say it's because of lead poisoning, but I believe that Lar is just overcome by the appallingly-ugly art.
Mon-El's story continues in Superman 685.
TOP THREE THINGS I'D LIKE TO HEAR MON-EL SAY:
3. "Uh, Kal, why is there a statue of me among the Legion statues in your Fortress?"
2. "Uh, Brainy, why can't Kal take some of your anti-lead serum back to the 21st century and let me out of the Phantom Zone then?"
1. "Uh, Brainy, why can't you take some anti-lead serum back to the 21st century, get me out of the Phantom Zone, and then take me to the 31st century with you?"
ACTION #874 (4/09)
"Origins & Omens"
ROLL CALL: Sensor Girl [Wilcox], Tellus (cameo)
This story is mainly about the Guardian but it includes a cameo shot of Tellus. The Giuardian's story, and presumably that of Tellus, continues in Superman #686.
GREEN LANTERN CORPS #33 (4/09)
"Emerald Eclipse Part One"
No specific Legion appearances in this issue, but part of the story takes place on Daxam (which is conquered by Mongul), and Sodam Yat's parents feature in the tale as well.
R.E.B.E.L.S. #1 (4/09)
"The Future is Now"
ROLL CALL: Brainiac 5, Hakk (a Khund?), Skwaul (maybe a Hykrain?), Supergirl, Tribulus, Un-named alien, Vril Dox (here called Brainiac 2)
Good art, and a competent story. Vril Dox, being chased by a bloodthirsty group of aliens, lands on Earth and seeks help from Supergirl. Turns out that Brainiac 5 programmed Kara with a hypnotic message for Vril.
It will be interesting to see where this goes in the future.
