Week of 14 April 2010

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

ADVENTURE #10/513 (6/10)
"Last Stand of New Krypton Part Six: Divided, Conquerable"
ROLL CALL: Chameleon Boy, Element Lad, Matter-Eater Lad, Mon-El, Quislet, Starman/Star Boy (also: Superboy [Conner])

CUTE BOYS:  Conner, Jan, Mon-El, Tenzil (and don't miss mostly-naked Az-Rel in bondage in the second story)

This issue comes with two covers. The variant one is the only place where Sensor Girl is pictured this time around.

Quislet rescues Superman from falling to his death. Meanwhile, Starman, Chameleon Boy, Element Lad, and Matter-Eater Lad dash off to find the bottle cities, leaving Conner to be ambushed by Luthor. Conner winds up in the re-bottled Kandor. Meanwhile, Mon-El is sedated and hallucinating. General Zod and his crack suicide team break out of Kandor to attack Brainiac.

BITS OF LEGIONNAIRE BUSINESS: After being transported to Kandor and losing his Kryptonian powers, Conner uses his Legion flight ring to fly. He thinks, "...Never used it to actually fly before. It tingles a little while it works...never knew."

Of course, Conner's flight ring is from Earth-247; we don't know if flight rings tingle in current continuity. (Come to think of it, XS and Gates also have Earth-247 flight rings - are they automatically compatible with current ones? And what about the Earth-Prime Legion - is their equipment also compatibile?)

When out of his ship, Quislet looks like purplish energy with a Legion flight ring.
