I did not see any Legion content in DC Comics this week.
There was a new issue of Young Avengers, with lots of cute
boys and some tender moments. Hulkling and Wiccan continue to be the
cutest couple in all comicdom (although rumors are that Kevin Keller is
going to have his first kiss in an upcoming issue.)
This is the first part of a three-parter, and it's got some interesting twists. Earth is in conflict with New Krypton, formerly the Kryptonian colony Argo. Earthgov, represented by Minister Kirt Niedrigh, views the Legion as collaborators with the Kryptonians. There are plenty of hints of the xenophobic "human supremicist" theme in this version.
Booster Gold is there, too, and has a Legion ring just like he's supposed to. Brainiac 5 is caucasian and looks like the actor who played him in the series. Clark and Garth are just plain cute. When the two of them meet once again, there's a definite sexual charge in the air. (Plus there's the fact that for much of the story, Garth is holding onto one of Clark's balls, and no, I'm not making that up.)
All told, it's a refreshing take on the Legion, and a fun little comic. I'm definitely looking forward to the next issue.
As always, check out my new Legion site, and email me if you want an account so you can leave comments and such.

The new issue of World's Finest has Power Girl and the Huntress fighting Desaad, who at times bears a striking resemblence to the Time Trapper...but I'm sure that's just the tattered purple robe and hood plus general menacing posture.
In other words: No Legion stuff to see here. Move along. Move along.
In the 26th century, three psi-gifted teenagers find themselves on the same flight to Earth. Thrown together by chance, the kids use their remarkable abilities to foil an assassination attempt against Colleen Artveldt, the galaxy's richest person. In response, Artveldt announces that she wants them to be founding members of a new organization, a corps of similarly-talented youths to be called the PsiScouts.
