Week of 12 January 2011

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

R.E.B.E.L.S. #24 (2011/03)
"Starstruck Part 1"


Adam Strange, Captain Comet, Lobo, Starfire, Tribulus, Vril Dox, Astrild Stormdaughter, Smite, Starro

CUTE BOYS: Adam Strange, Captain Comet

Okay, this is getting more interesting. I'm a little dubious about bringing Starro back so quickly, but Green Lanterns and various Vegans weren't working, so why not? (Still, a visit from the real Legion couldn't hurt. Or how about the Legion of Earth-Prime, since it was Earth-Prime's Brainiac 5 who started Dox on all this stuff to begin with?)

Anyway, Dox goes on a date with Blackfire, Adam Strange has a nice evening at home with his wife and kid, and Captain Comet runs into Lobo in a bar while moping about Starfire.

Astrild Stormdaughter lures Lobo away with pheremones, and drains his life-force to restore the parasite on Starro's chest. In turn, it births a bunch of little starros. (This is confusing...the name "Starro" refers to the space-starfish as well as to the big bald guy with a star-shaped scar on his face.)

Finally, Smite crashes into Dox's ship with a big Skroom!, carrying Tribulus away.

BITS OF L.E.G.I.O.N.NAIRE BUSINESS: Is it just me, or has Tribulus done nothing much up to this point? Other than occasionally acting as bodyguard for Dox (who doesn't really need a bodyguard, and anyway I thought that was Lobo's job).
