[personal profile] grazzt wanted this one, and it's definitely deserving of a repost.

The bad guys attacked, they're getting away. That is all we need to know.

His completely disgusted expression cracks me up. Anyway, Brainy is fine, what with the invulnerable force field and all, and promptly sets up intensive search programs for Lyle. Which leads to this...

...and, of course, this.

That is still the cutest thing ever.

That's a rather generic star insignia used by artists all across the industry.

That is adorable. And quite wonderful given Brainy's stuttering subject change after-the-fact. Aww...

They're now touring the multiverse as the New Wanderers, per Legion of Three Worlds #3.

This whole pairing was a bit . . . as far as I can remember they did seem to be trying to turn it into something official, but this was as far as it got before the reboot and all the early signs consisted of were a couple of the other Legionnaires discovering Querl's stash of creepy pictures of other teammates.

Including one of Lyle undressing.

The idea of the pairing is adorable but the actual canon was taking its relationship advice from way too many bad romance movies.

I don't know, it has possibilities...

LYLE: You're impossibly smart. And snobby. Your skin is... green. And sometimes you speak like you need to show off your vocabulary. You never eat or drink anything and you don't go into the sunlight (because you spend too much time in your lab). I know what you are.

QUERL: Say it out loud, say it.

LYLE: ...Coluan.

QUERL: Are you afraid?

Until they paired him up with Dream Girl, I was definitely reading a slashy vibe between Brainy and Lyle in Threeboot.

Not to mention that animated Brainy was so ridiculously gay for Clark.

This amuses and frustrates me, big time. Mostly because it was said many times before that Lyle in this 'boot is canonically gay, but they always backed down from saying it. (

This was interesting, but then this scene was never followed up on. I saw that as a bit of a cop-out: why put it in if it isn't going to be dealt with? (A subsequent issue was a 'downtime' issue that was horrendously bad, and didn't even go near this. It was frustrating as hell.)

Unregistered open-IDs are treated like anon comments, which DW prevents from making html links in order to prevent anon linkspam.

Also, yeah. The post-ZH Legion is "my" Legion, as much as I have one, but it really was frustratingly heteronormative, particularly in comparison to the tail end of the preboot Legion. Lyle was all we got and we didn't even actually get him.

My Legion was was Threeboot, but I feel pretty much the same level of disappointment, with the only queer character being a cameo by Giant Lad's brother and that only coming by exposition from another character.

They didn't have much time to follow it up. This story-arc ended in issue 30, the series was cancelled by issue 38.

(. . . Also I am totally mis-remembering the order in which things happened because I remember Kon-El being involved in the discovery of Querl's picture stash, so that means it happened after this scene.)

Regarding Lyle, just because he's gay doesn't mean he'd date Brainy. Lots of people otherwise attracted to men have declined to date Brainy, the boy comes with more baggage than Mogo on vacation and his romantic history in all incarnations has mostly consisted of pining for whomever on the team can best kick his ass at something.

Oh, this wasn't about them dating so much as I wanted on-panel confirmation about Lyle, that I was waiting for for some time.

When it came to Brainy in earlier discussions I always figured Lyle wasn't into Frozen Food.

...and his romantic history in all incarnations has mostly consisted of pining for whomever on the team can best kick his ass at something.

That might make an interesting character (or even species) trait. Brainy (or any Coluan) isn't attracted to male or female, he's just attracted to people better than him.

That seems like a plausible Coluan-trait to me! He would probably justify himself as saying that it's evolutionary sense to want to pair off with the best available mate.

It'd be an excellent trait for a species that genetically engineers all its babies in artificial wombs anyway, which I am pretty sure the Coluans do in some continuities. You don't have to worry about species, let alone gender.

I have never been a Legion fan, the whole thing actually kind of actively turned me off (time travel! defiant kid heroes against meanie adults! huge rosters! Superwanking! an endless sea of white human kids in a supposedly global and interspecies society!). And then [ profile] batcookies did some posts on S_DLJ about the Legion in which a snake princess wore a fruit basket hat, and I fell so utterly in love, only to discover that the whole lot of them got obliterated in miserable indignity before I even finished high school.

And naturally this is not the Legion that Johns decided to restore when Threeboot got chucked over the side. I can't have nice things. ;_;

I've hardly read any of that era, but I learned enough to laugh like an idiot at a fanfic in which Chameleon hits on her by saying, "But, listen-- in my true form, I don't even have FEET!"

She swoons, of course. As much as a snake can swoon.

I love a romantic ending.

I'm just glad I was away when Threeboot Star Boy appeared. I gather that a lot of fans carried on about this as if somebody had gunned down a puppy in the street. Always disheartening.

I'll still check out the revived book if I can scrape up the bucks, though.
