Week of 17 February 2010

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

"Team History"
CUTE BOYS: Ace, Blackhawk, Mikaal, Mon-El, Prof, Red, Rocky

More bad guys go after more pieces of alien technology from the past, while Mon-El doesn't do much of anything (his only action scene is off-panel). So why is Mon-El in the comic? Just to sell more comics to Legion fans?


SUPERGIRL #50 (4/10)
CUTE BOYS: As if! (this comic is for Lesbians and straight men: boobs all over the place)

No actual Legion connection, but Lana Lang once again becomes the Insect Queen. In an earlier reality, Lana Lang's Insect Queen was a Legion Reservist.


"The Big Noise Part 2: Benediction Redux"
CUTE BOYS: nope.

Again, no actual Legion connection, but the villain is a time-traveling Durlan. (You'd think a Durlan could masquerade as a cute boy, but apparently not.) The Durlans apparently tried to eliminate the Kryptonians once upon a time, and this Durlan is still on about that. Chameleon Boy, Chameleon Girl, and R.J. Brande were all Durlans -- and none of them tried to kill Kal-El or Kara, so I guess the Durlans got over it by the 30th century.
