First attempt at posting, so I hope I got it right.

The following pages are from Legion of Super-Heroes Vol. 3 #35 (Jun. 1987), the conclusion of the four-part "Universo Project". Essentially, Universo is doing his old shtick again, taking over the United Planets via hypnotic control. But this time, he's hedged his bets by capturing those heroes that might have the willpower to resist his mind zapping. In the Legion's corner, that includes Dream Girl, Brainiac 5, Chameleon Boy and Saturn Girl (who's retired from the Legion at this point). Universo kidnaps them, makes them amnesiac and sticks them on an alien world.

Saturn Girl - Imra Ardeen - proves a tough nut to crack, as she shrugs off the induced amnesia quite rapidly and sets about freeing her fellow captives. The four Legionnaires make their way back to Earth for a confrontation with the big bad, complicated by the fact that their fellow Legionnaires are under his control. Brainy and the others make a stand at his old lab, and are taken out.

And now it's down to Saturn Girl. And between her and Universo are Ultra Boy and Mon-El, two of the most powerful men in the universe.


And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why you never fuck with Imra Ardeen.

She's been the 30th Century's #1 woman since she first appeared in 1958.

She's proof that a girl can kick nass and take names while wearing clothes (there was that brief period in the Grell years but we won't get into that...)

She's proof that a strong mind IS a valued asset in a woman.

She's the gawddam Saturn Girl and she got you on her mind!

...okay okay i'll go get my tea, geez...

I heard it on the car radio the other day. What's the name of the cut-song?

This would be great in the LoSH show, having Saturn Girl trying to free the Legion from Universo... but NO! They had to cancel the show after two season in one time slot om Saturdays while that POS George of the Jungle remake runs countless time for the weekend!

Another great Legion story uncollected; thanks, DC trade dept! I'm sure they'll get right on Great Darkness Saga too, only a year after Final Crisis!

Also: Miss Universo, WHAT is the outfit about?
