Week of 17 June 2009

I did not see any Legion content in DC Comics this week.

There is one minor LSH connection. ACTION COMICS ANNUAL #12 (2009) tells the origin story of the new Nightwing and Flamebird, aka Christopher Kent (Lor-Zod) and Thara Ak-Var. One of the characters is a Kryptonian criminal named Dev-Em.

In classic Legion continuity, Dev-Em was a Kryptonian juvenile delinquent and Kal-El's on-again-off-again S&M buddy, before jumping forward to the 30th century to become entangled with the LSH. Dev-Em had a long and distinguished career as an agent of the Interstellar Counter-Intelligence Corps, then Giffen and the Bierbaums drove him insane with a terrible haircut and made him blow up the moon.

That was about it for Dev-Em. In current continuity he is a Kryptonian criminal incarcerated in the Phantom Zone. He has no connection to the Legion...yet.

I still have my eyes on Chris Kent/Lor-Zod/Nightwing. I'm willing to bet he hooks up with the Legion sometime.
