ACTION 859:

http://www.dccomics.com/comics/?cm=8331
http://www.comicboards.com/superman/view.php?trd=071120221323



Superific art. And story. And uniforms (especially the 3 protagonists). And Dawnstar *love* (&wing details). And new(?) future setting. And Batman element. And Justice League element. And LSH mythos elements. And splash pages. And armbands. And teacher (&teachings). And chain of events logic. And part 2 of arc of unknown length (ATM dont care how long this enjoyable entertaining storyline lasts). And variant cover (http://images.tfaw.com/covers_tfaw/400/se/sep070184d.jpg). And did I mention the story and art?!

Questions:

How many of the JL are previously established DC characters?

Were there other LSH easter eggs possibly missed?

What Jay asked(especially #2):
http://www.comicboards.com/superman/view.php?rpl=071123133656
1/ is the first image the cover and is the shrouded image of Superman meant to be with the Legion team or just an allusion to the story being about him?
2/ how on Earth did they get away with naming a character Spider-Girl?!?!?!

What Nav asked(paraphrased):
http://www.comicboards.com/superman/view.php?rpl=071122050100
Is there likely a Kingdom Come connectio?

Why wouldn't Invisible Kid be dealt with a little more respectfully being of Earth?

Should there, logically, have been more decay in the Batcave?

Isn't it unlikely, Batarangs are pure metal (at least anti-magnetic)?

Does Camp 6736 implies a cosmic reset button must be rehit?

Even without answers, this issue was a superific fun read, eh?

Most if not all are obscure Silver-age Legion characters, some are rejects from the Legion tryouts. I thought 'Earth-Man' was oldtime Legion foe Nemesis Kid when I fist saw him in the previews!

The camps that Superman & Dawnstar are overlooking in preperation for a breakout are allusions to silver-age Legion stories where the LSH is similarly oulawed, most memorably it turns out Universo was behind it...Hmmm? >:-|

She's a Silver age character! Nearly as old as Spiderman IIRC... she even became a Legionnaire in the Bierbaum/Giffen LSH.

He threw his lot in with the Legion obviously. Thus no stmpathy.

> Should there, logically, have been more decay in the Batcave?

Definitly, it looked like it had been abandoned a mere 20 years instead of a Thousand!! Think of all those Bat droppings and their acidic qualities and it's even more ridiculous.

I thought that too!

Yes. Mind you I feel more was needed in the way of background - why did things escalate beyond the Legions ability to adapt and how did this Justice League become so pre-eminent?
You'd think some oldtime Legion foes would be coming in for a slice of Earth/the U.P. with the dissolution of the Legion, Where are the Fatal Five, Dominators, Khunds and other miscellaneous threats the Legion contended with? Probobly besides the poit i know...


"LOL ...LMAO...*wink*... Guffaw... *sigh*..." (etc etc...)

...Oh, Did i say lol BTW? *rhe*
