And by "little king," I of course mean...ahem.
A reason why Bedard & St. Aubin's R.E.B.E.L.S. is one of the most criminally underrated DC comics around right now. It was only BLACKEST NIGHT that gave me occasion to notice it(and they were even playful with BN). Sure, on Earth, the DCU is a grim, grim place. But in space no one can hear you laugh.

They're Psions. They're probably just sizing it up (pardon the pun) for future genetic experimentation.

I always wondered why Braniac 5 seemed so much stupider than the other Braniacs until I realized he is the only one cursed with any kind of morals.
Now it all makes sense.

Threeboot B5 seemed just as smart as this Dox to me :)

Brainy can't be right all the time or the plot falls apart.

Funny thing is, in the end Brainiac 5 wins, while Brainiac 1 or 12 or 13 loses.

That, and when your hero is infallible, there goes the whole point of having a team. :/

Threeboot Brainy disturbed me greatly, but I guess that was kind of the point. [shrug]

Since when did Despero have a "Little King'. He was usually shown running around naked, but he's a Ken doll!

Dox: "Oh yeah. Tweaked the regeneration a bit. Enjoy the new weak spot."

<< I would totally not put this past Vril Dox.

I'm actually vaguely disappointed. From your cut text, I was expecting someone to be buried alive by Despero.

Has Despero ever been de-powered and revert back to Silver-Age self?

I definitely recommend it! I started with the Blackest Night tie-in and haven't looked back since. Hell, bought all the back-issues last week! It's a great book.

And if you like it I definitely recommend the original L.E.G.I.O.N. series, which I think is even better (tastes may vary and all that, but Dox's even bigger bastard there, which is always a bonus).

I have put thought into tracking down L.E.G.I.O.N. Do you know if any of it is collected?

I'm not really the person to ask, since I'm on the wrong continent, but unfortunately it seems that there are no trades. At least the main DC site lists none, and the same goes for Millarworld's trade paperback list. Didn't find any on milehigh either.

Rassafrassin... hopefully R.E.B.E.L.S. does well enough for DC to consider putting some out.

I gotta say, though, I *love* how all three of them are staring straight at it once Despero emerges fully grown. I guess it would be quite hypnotic.
