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 )

So I've decided to post issue 29 and 31 together (Issue 30 is a Will Pfeifer story, that I actually really like, and may post after this is all over)... Not a lot of narrative consequence happens in 29 So I thought we'd plow through.

No sooner does Kara declare that she will save Thomas life, than an armored man appears out of nowhere, and shoots her with a Kryptonite bullet. everyone else seems locked in time, and unable to re-act but very slowly Superman is able to shoot the man with his heat vision, this causes them to teleport to somewhere else...

I'm gonna say while it had some high points, Supergirl Vol 5 was a bit of a mess until Sterling Gates took over as writer. Kelly Puckett's storyline about cancer, isn't as off kilter as the quick change retcons around her origin, and reason for being on Earth... but is probably the weirdest arc in the book... so let's take a look at it.

Mike Maihack has, over the past couple of years, done a series of Batgirl/Supergirl strips of surpassing charm and cuteness (in other words, about as far from the New 52 as it's possible to get)

Might count as spoilers below the cut, depending on how up to date you are on certain plans involving Kara.

So recent events have led him to create a new one )
