with a bang *and* a whimper.

You'll recall that we left our merry band on the ropes during the rumble in the tumble(weeds) with Superboy, the Ravagers, Harvest and his lackeys, and Capt. Adym and Agent Lure of Echo all tussling with Daggor and the worldkiller he's building. Adym and Harvest, over the objections of all the other factions, planned to use Adym's time bubble to go back an hour before Daggor's forcefield went up and blow everything to Hell - killing billions, but saving quintillions, by their rather loose math.

We rejoin our battle already in progress, as Harvest sends Adym off in the bubble.

I do hope you won't allow the recent unpleasantness to taint your impressions of the 21st century! )
And we close out with the tagline, NEVER THE END!

So since they're still stuck in the 21st century, now can we start integrating them with the rest of the DCnU? I still miss Oz and the Orchid Clinic doc, who's still got hypertaxis virus mutation sufferers/fatalities all over the place. Wherever this team turns up next, I'd like to see some of that kind of supporting cast relationship-building happen, since they never took the time in their own title's 2-year run to do it properly.

...I know I sound like I don't like this title, but honestly I do. I nitpick because I love. I just got the trade of the first six issues and reading it like a book, I can see so many missed opportunities and so much potential here. It may not have suited my vision of a 21st-century Legion book, but I'm awfully sorry to see it go.

Kon-El had a lot of "Awwww!" moments. One is SUPERBOY #70, when Superboy returns from Hypertime. (That was a short-lived attempt to bring back Multiple Earths in the mainstream DCU, used in SUPERBOY and THE FLASH.) While traveling alternate Earths, Kon-El found out Clark Kent was really Superman which... hurt his feelings.

- especially if, like me, you haven't been reading other DCnU titles like Ravagers or Superboy. Four pages each from LL #14 and #15, out this week. I didn't post any of last month's ish at the time because I couldn't figure out where to even begin summarizing this hot mess. Oh, multi-team context-free melee issues, how I haven't missed you in this title! But oh yes, IT IS ON.
