> ACTION 859:
> Questions:
> How many of the JL are previously established DC characters?
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!

> Were there other LSH easter eggs possibly missed?
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? >:-|

> 2/ how on Earth did they get away with naming a character Spider-Girl?!?!?!
She's a Silver age character! Nearly as old as Spiderman IIRC... she even became a Legionnaire in the Bierbaum/Giffen LSH.

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

> Isn't it unlikely, Batarangs are pure metal (at least anti-magnetic)?
I thought that too!

> Does Camp 6736 implies a cosmic reset button must be rehit?
> Even without answers, this issue was a superific fun read, eh?
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*

I've seen only the preview pages.

Is this the adult Legion? If so, why are they being called "Lad", "Girl", and "Boy"? (And if not, where's Rokk's goatee? \:D )

If they knew young Clark and haven't seen him in years, how in the world could "Kal" have told them anything about Batman? That would have been part of Clark's ADULT life, not his youth

How would young Clark have even KNOWN about Batman, let alone the kryptonite ring?
