And there will always be the underlying theme of family. After the great character cast expansions we've seen under Kirkman and Fraction, I was a little nervous about the latest reboot. What would happen to the Richards kids? To the rest of the Future Foundation? To Bentley, the Moloids, and Dragon Man?
Mister Robinson, to you I say... you had my curiosity. Now you have my attention.

Which is a shame, because in the middle of this dead zone, you get one of the single greatest moments for Dr. Doom ever.

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!
Blok and the White Witch.
( We all change. That's what gives us life. )
So now they're both on inactive status. But maybe someday they'll rejoin the Legion, and be cute and lighthearted again. Hope springs eternal, right?
Although I hate Parallax, I've always had a soft spot for Final Night. I think it's one of the best crossovers DC ever had, which pitted Earth's heroes against a Sun-Eater bent on eating our sun. In the end, it was Hal Jordan, fresh from the Zero Hour debacle, who saved the day, by sacrificing himself. Say whatever you want about the idea to darken him, I think his sacrifice is one of the finest in all of comics. In fact, I found most of issue #4 deeply moving.

We're throwing comics at the wall here to see what sticks. (why yes, I have just finished a Portal 2 binge.)
Combining (broadly) the Doom Patrol and X-Force, two misfit bands of tragic mutants led by a rather unbalanced, near-sociopathic Futurist gets us...
( Those misfits, misfits of science (ha)... )
14 1/3 pages behind the cut, 7 from X-Patrol #1 and 7 1/3 from Exciting X-Patrol #1.
Greetings, True Believers! Corporal Chocochuy reporting for duty as well as sporting a new avatar!
So far we have seen the rebirth of the Red Skull as well as Cap and Bucky fighting a Japanese Vampire. Right now I have decided that we need to see some of the romance that has been part of the life of Captain America. I am proud to give you one of Cap’s dangerous date with Betsy Ross. Enjoy!

Back in 1989, a mysterious new character started communicating with the Suicide Squad via computer. The Squad's computer technician (and you may all marvel at the super-modern computers) was Flo Crawley, an idealistic young woman given a job by Amanda Waller, who is apparently a friend of her mother Edna Mae.

So here's a look at what YJ!Superboy might want...
