6:15am: Best Friends 4 Ever!
You know, the Legion of Superheroes are really cool. Where else can a teenager like Superboy hang out with kids with powers like himself, go on wacky adventures, get trapped to die a slow lingering death…
Wow. Apparently torture of prisoners is legal in the 30th Century.
10:01pm: Another TypoLad Guest Post...
This time I paid a visit to the nice folks at "Suspension of Disbelief". The topic was the recent issue of Action Comics featuring SUperman going to someone's house for Friday Night Shabbos dinner.
Bruce Wayne hears gunfire and leaps into the limo to get in costume…
…but he puts on Superman’s costume.
Really. The top half of the page is Superman elsewhere. For some reason, the artist decided Bruce would put on big blue’s costume.
Top of the next page, he’s in his own threads.
I dunno, maybe it’s Hypertime.
Or maybe I'm just a geek.
In other news, I was talking to a friend last night and he got an odd look on his face. When I asked him what was up he told me that he just realized I could have used the computers he was given that day. However, since he could not think of anyone, he decided to have some fun with a sledghammer.
5:45am: Double Your Pleasure, Double Your Fun!
In an odd costuming moment, Duo Damsel retains her full body costume the entire time she’s a member of the Legion, and then starts showing up in peek-a-boo outfits once she’s married and off the team.
How can you not love a comic where a woman gets in a catfight with herself?
7:19am: This One’s Just Painful.
Imagine if David Duke came out with a children's book featuring an African-American protagonist....
Roy “Girls are Stooopid” Thomas presents a book where the female Avengers are manipulated by a militant feminist, in one of the most painful to read stories ever
(I'm not saying Roy Thomas is quite on that level, but this book doesn't help argue that he ain't!)
In a rare examination of actual content, the story goes like this - The female Avengers, plus then non-member Black Widow, are convinced by The Valiryke (Not the one from The Defenders - they just look alike) that they need to replace The Avengers because they are men and are therfore unfit.
Because yes, that is what feminism is all about.
(Although one could argue that Clint and Pietro deserved it, at least.)
The Flash is attacked by The Golden Glider - for whom I confess that I've always had a soft spot (She’s a psycho skater, what’s not to like?).
Anyways as part of her master plan, she straps some "rocket skates" on him and tries to launch him into orbit (which is a reoccurring deathtrap of the Rogues. Captain Boomerang tried this the first three times he showed up!).
Flash manages to snag himself on a building and use centrifugal force and super-speed to make the skates snap off.
Cool beans Flash!
Never mind the fact that the super-fast skates went zooming off at practically escape velocity, killing many and destroying property, at least you’re free!
5:58am: LoSH Fashion Friday: The Gim Avenger!
Poor Gim gets a hard time from a lot of people. He’s never seemed the brightest member of the Legion. I mean, the guy married a Durlan spy thinking she’s his best friend who he’s pinned for forever and doesn’t notice? Tch.
Plus, there’s the fact that when he designed his new costume, he left something out:
