Week of 7 April 2010

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

THE BOYS #41 (4/10)
"The Innocents Part Two"
ROLL CALL: Auntie Sis, Black Hole (not-Matter-Eater-Lad), Bobby Badoing (not-Bouncing-Boy), Kid Camo (not-Chameleon-Boy), Klanker (not-Ferro-Lad), Ladyfold, Malchemical (not-Metamorpho), Stool Shadow (not-Phantom-Girl)
CUTE BOYS: Black Hole, Kid Camo, Malchemical ain't bad-looking even though he's evil

Okay, Superduper is somewhat like the Subs, not the Legion. But there's still something wholesome and noble about them, which means they don't fit into the Boys universe. Which is what I suspect the whole story is about....


"Last Stand of New Krypton Part Five: Bottles and Battles"
ROLL CALL:Brainiac 5, Chameleon Boy, Element Lad, Matter-Eater Lad, Mon-El, Quislet, Sensor Girl, Star Boy/Starman, Tellus - also, Superboy (Conner), Supergirl
CUTE BOYS: Conner, Jan, Mon, Tenzil, Tiny Kandorians

Brainy's here, and he gets everyone through Brainiac's force field ("my ancestor's pitiful force field technology"). The Lanothians are no help at all. But hooray, that bothersome Kandor is back in the bottle. I say, put the stopper in and lock it up in the Fortress for a while.

BITS OF LEGIONNAIRE BUSINESS: Notice how Mon-El's hair has grown out quite a bit since last week. It looks good.

Jeckie drops the Sensor Girl mask. It actually makes the whole costume work's kinda a blend of Sensor Girl and Princess Projectra.
