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.

- 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.

Rumble in the Tumble(weeds) )
Next issue: Please Join Our Lost Legionnaires For Their .... LAST STAND!

Four pages from Legion of Super-Heroes #11. The basic situation, you'll recall: the Dominators have kidnapped Brainiac 5 and Dream Girl, and the politicos have forbidden the Legion from taking any action.

I'll let Cosmic Boy and Mon-El fill you in on the specifics, here.

We need LEADERSHIP here. )

But wait! Remember that prophecy Dream Girl laid on us last issue, that help was coming, but they would be betrayed?

Whyyyyyyyyyyy?? )

What's going on there? I've no clue, but I'm happy as long as it winds up eighty-sixing that particular character. Never, ever liked 'em.

LOSH #10 is just out, and it's setting up for the next big story arc. I bring you 3 & 1/3 pages to give you the general idea.

Last issue: Some creepozoid monsternasties teleported into Brainiac 5's lab to kidnap him, despite Harmonia and Dream Girl's best defenses; Brainy got snatched, and Dreamy got taken along for the ride.

We've escaped from worse. )

Technically the kidnappers are unidentified, but the Legion has, let us say, a very strong suspicion. But despite a covert intel assault on the suspects' Earth embassy and current leader Mon-El's impassioned plea to the council, the United Planets and Earthgov have forbidden the Legion from making any move against their suspects.

So what's a team to do? Splinter over the issue, of course.

We're not leaving any Legionnaires behind. )
So help is on the way, and that's a good thing! Right?

Right? )
It's a little early to start placing bets, but it should be interesting to see how the odds on that prophecy of Dreamy's shape up as the arc progresses.

Incidentally, I think Star Boy is in that chair because of ongoing effects of the process of restoring his sanity after his return from the 21st century. (Unless he got whomped in the Saturn Queen's New Legion of Super-Villains arc and I've forgotten? Anyone?) Reference has been made to his having rehab sessions, but I believe the end of last ish was the first time we'd seen him use an assistive device to get around.

The preview for issue #21 is out. Harley Quinn is breaking into Arkham, per the last issue, to finish the Joker.

Why finally get an idea of what that nail in her collection of four tools is so vital.

Even the smallest of things...  )
