Oh my, this IS a tough one, I've been a sucker for team books all my life; the X-Men, the New Mutants, the Legion of Super-Heroes, the JLA, the JSA (Who I mostly knew about through the JLA/JSA crossovers), the All-Star Squadron, Grant Morrison's Doom Patrol, the Batman Family (which I knew when it was at the more ... manageable scale of one Batman, one Batgirl, one Robin and then a replacement Robin and a Nightwing... not that I didn't like the additions, but...) and of course, the New Teen Titans. I'd even count the five principle Bronze Saints from Saint Seiya as a team.

All these have been part of my comic reading experience since the age of... well let's not go there, so picking one is like being asked to pick between a boxful of cute, but different puppies. It's almost impossible.

But, whilst I've posted a LOT of New Mutants and New Teen Titans and Batman Family stuff over the years, there was always one team which was THE team... and it might not be one you'd think of, but it holds a special place in my heart.

The Legion of Super-Heroes )

OK gang, it's time for LOSH #23, "Aftermath," and you all know what THAT means....

On the upside, we do get lovely Kevin Maguire art for Aftermath. If you've ever wanted to see what Maguire could do with Bouncing Boy - and if not, why not?!? - this ish is your chance.

Everything since the crash is a cauchemar. )

And that's it until some other creator decides to reopen the toybox. Long Live the Legion!

Well, this was...messy. Two full pages and individual panels to make up maybe a third page and a half.

There must still be hidden defenses! )

And so hastily ends the Fatal Five Destroy Everything arc. Next issue, we tie up ... THE UNIVERSE ... as the series ends.

Art is by the tagless Jeff Johnson on pencils and Andy Smith on inks.

2 pages from the new issue.

So as you'll recall, Brainiac 5 and Dream Girl have been kidnapped by the Dominators. Everybody and their brother knows it's the Dominators. But thanks to POLITICS!!! the Legion has been forbidden to rescue them unless they present proof to the Council that it's the Dominators.

Still bickering, Cosmic Boy suggests Mon-El try magic - either via Glorith (remember her?) or a call to the Black Witch (remember her?). He declines, but it does remind him someone else still exists. So back to the Council they go...

Reasonable doubt? You be the judge. )

So basically they're just staking it all on that character's clout? Okaaaay.

One page from Superman #697, in which the Legion Espionage Squad reunites.

Oh yeah, the Legion's back )

And the request: I just finished reading The Supergirls: Fashion, Feminism, Fantasy and the History of Comic Book Heroines. It mentions at one point in the 1990s the Wasp of the Avengers started mutating into an actual wasp? Does anyone have scans of this?

In my Previous post Karate Kid died. The posted cover is from that issue. The following post is his wife's (Princess Projectra) reaction. (5 pages of 25)

5 pages )


Reading back through this original version of the Legion I remembered something that is missing from the later incarnations.
This LSH grew up from a gang of kids to seasoned adult heroes. Don't get me wrong, I believe that all the later reboots had
moments of merit and I enjoyed them. But this version had the history to back up the stories.
