Week of 9 January 2013

I did not see any Legion content in comics this week.

Addition: However, an alert reader I'm going to talk about that Legion content in another post.

However, in working on my new Legion site, I did find a 47-year-old blooper chronicler's error.

Cast your minds back to Adventure 341, part two of the two-part Computo saga. In the previous issue, Computo executed Triplicate Girl. On page 3 of the current issue, the Legionnaires assemble to grieve for her:

But wait, who's that in purple-and-orange, with her back to us?

After the Legionnaires construct a memorial that gathers Triplicate Girl's disintegrated particles and sends them to Shanghalla, they get a surprise:

There she is again!

"But we saw you die!" says Superboy. More like "But we saw you standing in between Ultra Boy and Light Lass, just a second ago!"

I guess the other Legionnaires were too grief-stricken to notice that the woman they're mourning is in front of their eyes the whole time. "Super-senses" indeed!

Actually, my real guess is that this figure is supposed to be Phantom Girl, but the colorist messed up.

A little digital recoloring, and voila!...Phantom Girl:

Action Comics #16 has Legion content in the main feature and a "Tales of the Legion of Super-Heroes" back-up.

Grant Morrison's Adult Legion in the first story appears to be the Reboot Legion with some Original Legion touches.

The Chris Sprouse drawn back-up is all Original Legion and set in their earlier days.

Ken, thanks! I guess I'm going to have to start looking at Action more regularly.

I put up a new post with my analysis of which Legion(s) we're dealing with here.
