...almost none of which will I be showing you, in order to keep to the new-issue posting limits. 4 pages.

This is where we open, and while it seems fairly static I include it for three reasons: It's as good a setup as we could ask for; I really love Glorith's magical redecorating job on her quarters; and I have no idea why she is wearing Polar Boy's clothes. /jk In any case she follows the voice through the pink cloud to someplace where a torch-waving horde of medieval peasants is yelling "BURN THE WITCH!!!" Green though Glorith is, she realizes this is Not A Good Sign.

The next morning, Dragonwing and Chemical Kid find Glorith's quarters empty, and hit the panic button, insisting Glorith would never have blown off their shopping date without a word to anyone. Harmonia, surveying Glorith's quarters, agrees it's mysterious but not necessarily an emergency. Mon-El, who's still leader for another day or two, agrees; Cosmic Boy, working the board on light duty while recovering from his injuries, demurs, saying Glorith is the meekest new recruit he can remember in years. He's sure she'd have at least posted her status on the board.

Mon-El is all prepared to pull rank and blow the alarm off, when the SP's make a distress call: Timestorm in Barcelona! The Legionnaires scramble for Spain, where they find dinosaurs, cavemen, the aforementioned medieval peasants and World Wars-era tanks all creating chaos. Brainy takes coordination position, dispatching Mon, Ultra Boy, Dragonwing and Chem Kid to run interference while he and Harmonia search for...

"But will I have to stay shielded all the time?" Brainy theorizes that it's the combination of Glorith and the Barcelona locale that triggered the timestorm, else why bring her there? and so she's fine as long as she stays away from Spain. "...at least until we find out who did this...and why...?"

In the only non-action page of the ish, Chameleon Boy summons Shrinking Violet and Lightning Lass to his quarters to discuss their hunt for the remnants of the Fatal Five (not a euphemism). "You mean the aimless chase?" Ayla interjects. "I'm worried there's a reason that we're failing..." is Cham's last word on the subject. I only mention because it brings us nicely up to the Next Issue tag:

NEXT: VALIDUS!

I couldn't help but laugh when I saw your linked image of Polar Boy, immediately thought "Missing arm, that was so written by Geoff Johns", and then found that I was absolutely correct. It's like his go to move, it's ridiculous.

And Britta put a blue streak in her hair. Dystopia.

That is kinda funny, but since that arc was my first real exposure to the Legion, I still have a lot of love for it, especially that badass Polar Boy. :D

Looks interesting and pretty good.

See, I disagree--I've felt for a while that Lost has been the more frentic and interesting book, while Legion's been slow, plodding, and kind-of pointless since the beginning of the New 52.

I could see that--the only characters I've really read a lot of in Lost at this point that I feel like I could tell OOC behavior or not are Dawnstar and Wildfire, and they didn't seem all that far off.

Oh yeah, I forgot about #0 and Timber Wolf. That is a big change, though I do get why if they were going to change up someone's origin, it's going to be Timber Wolf and his weird robot twin origin.

So is that Lionel Messi being pulled from the 21st century or a 31st century Barca fan in a commemorative Messi jersey?

You know, when I saw the solicit for this, I thought the idea was that a 21st Century city would have found it's way into the 31st, which I think would have been a FAR more interesting story, even if this one included dinosaurs.
