Hi ho Legion fans, 4 pages from LOSH #17 here. Remember the last page of last ish, how a complex quark relay station quietly goes about its business...until suddenly it doesn't? Well, as David said in Prometheus, big things have small beginnings, and so to this ish's title, "The Beginning of the End"!

Total system failure... )
NEXT ISSUE tagline: It Gets Worse. Whooboy.

Incidentally, anybody heard any word on where/when the Legion Lost crew is likely to fetch up next?

3 pages from LOSH #16, a filler issue in which we hang out, elect a new Legion leader, and move the last pieces into place for the return of the Fatal Five.

But I won't keep you in suspense about the popularity contest leadership election!

and the red scrunchie goes to... )
Next issue: Things Fall Apart.

Things are still building slowly in this weeks LOSH #14, but they are building. Four pages.

You start the fire - I'll provide plenty of fuel. )

Love that teaser for next ish, because "Witch in a Time Storm" means either Glorith or Mysa will be turning up. Either would be dandy by me!

OK, so the work on this primer kind of got away from me, mea culpa. But I now have it complete up to the current "The Culling" crossover arc.

In Part 1, we saw how Yera was duped into impersonating Shrinking Violet for months on end, during which time "Vi" secretly married Colossal Boy. Yera was exposed, Vi was rescued, Gim and Yera decided to stay married, and all was on track for them all to live happily ever after.

But first, they gotta tell Gim's parents...

in a story called 'Guess What's Coming to Dinner?' No, really. )

And you can tune in to Legion Lost for more Chameleon Girl, now that The Culling is wrapping up!

Hello s_d! As promised back in my last Legion Lost post, here is a Chameleon Girl retrospective. Because this is gonna be too huge, I'm breaking it into two parts: pre- and post-Conspiracy. Second part will go up tomorrow if my computer cooperates. Images from Legion of Super-Heroes 288-305 in this part.

In this part we ask the eternal question, When is a Shrinking Violet not a Shrinking Violet? Is it when she suddenly starts entertaining advances from the guy who's had a crush on her forever? Or is it when she gets called out on same by her boyfriend of record?



Or is the answer...something far more sinister? dun dun DUNNNNN

pace Vic Sage, 'Obvious, in hindsight' )

So ends part 1 of our tale. I don't think it's much of an exaggeration to say this plot was the most interesting thing to happen to Shrinking Violet and/or Colossal Boy in years. Plus, it falls during my personal pick for Keith Giffen/Larry Mahlstedt art at the top of its game.

Next up, pretty much all of Yera's post-conspiracy appearances.

One of my favorite comic book deaths, probably because it was my first.

From Superboy #203, written by Cary Bates, art by Mike Grell.

I've chosen not to reproduce the first 13 or so pages of this comic, mainly just to keep the page count legal. So, a quick summary of the events up until now.

The story begins with several uniformed invaders entering Legion headquarters, attempting to access the Legion museum. All are thwarted save one, who turns out to be Element Lad. That's right, it's a Legion training exercise--but there should have been a Legionnaire on duty in the museum. It turns out that Invisible Kid was on duty, but he appears collapsing on the floor.

They take him to the infirmary and after a mento scan then find that he was more or less shirking his duties, as he was visiting another dimension at the time to see his up to now unknown girlfriend Myla. Her dimension only seems accessible to Invisible Kid, as his powers allow him to visit the dimension. Well, current Legion leader Mon-El is pissed, and forbids him from turning invisible for a week. Invisible Kid isn't happy, but accepts his punishment. He plans to return to the dimension after his punishment is over and ask Myla to be his wife.

On with the story )

One of the reasons I've always loved this story is seeing just how much of a bad ass Validus really was. He pretty much punked the Legion out without breaking a sweat. I don't think he's given this sort of treatment anymore.

About a year ago, I posted my very first Master Post entry back on scans_daily. It was Giant Size Hernandez Bros. (http://master-post.livejournal.com/652.html#cutid1 ) and it was incedibly fun to do. I was celebrating the release of their latest Love & Rockets volume. Well, the second issue just came out and what can I say? It’s fantastic. I think every time one of these books hits the shelves there should be a parade or some sort of citywide festival. It’s no less than what the Bros.deserve, right? I’m only one person, though, and this Master Post is my humble contribution. HINT: it's got tons of superheroes.

Untitled-3

This is a huge post so I’ll keep my dumb mouth shut for the most part. Like last time, I appreciate the present by looking back into some lesser seen gems of the past.

Waaay back in 2006, when the Legion of Super Heroes cartoon first aired, an s_d 1.0 member thought that Bouncing Boy would be the Legionnaire who'd be subtext-y for Supes.

Then the episode "Legacy" happened. Hindsight, as they say, is 20/20.

'Training purposes,' dammit! ) ETA: Goddammit Photobucket just reduced their bandwidth limit from 25 GB to 10 GB. Yet they still sent me an email saying I'd exceeded the "25 GB" limit...

In the final months of the threeboot book the Legion was joined by the young M'rissy. At the time I thought it was obviously how Shooter saw himself in his early years writing the Legion but went on to discover the name M'rissy is actually referring to a fan of the Legion who had since died, Rich Morrissey. (His writings about Coluan Lifespans, from the Legion Fanzine 'legion outpost' is available in 'the best of the Legion outpost' on amazon)
