As great as I’m told my memory is, things to fall through the cracks on a regular basis. This is especially true when there isn’t a Big Event to help me fix the proper sequence of events, and I don’t notice the omission until some stray stimulus eventually jars it loose. The early months of […]

30th Century deja vu

May 23rd, 2016

The Mighty Mike Sterling recently fielded a reader question about the Legion of Super-Heroes’ decline from a fan favorite franchise to its current state of sad irrelevance. Mike did a great job breaking down the Legion’s tragic cycle of reboots and diminishing returns, which has been on my mind since I revisited those funnybooks for […]

A Most Modest Flower: Day 29

February 29th, 2016

(art by Jaime Hernandez in Who’s Who: The Definitive Directory of the DC Universe #21, November 1986) After flaking on AT’s February theme month tradition for a couple of years, I decided that 2016 would be where I got back on track and made a mental note to begin researching potential subject material… …a mental […]

A Most Modest Flower: Day 28

February 28th, 2016

(from “False Start” by Paul Levitz, Daniel HDR and Wayne Faucher in Legion of Super-Heroes v6 #11, May 2011) “Okay, I’m sorry. I’m sorry I won’t be able to kick that ginger-haired asshole in the nuts again. Happy?”

A Most Modest Flower: Day 27

February 27th, 2016

(from “Acceptance” by Paul Levitz and Francis Portela in Legion of Super-Heroes v6 #6, December 2010) “It’s nice our relationship doesn’t have to be coyly hinted at anymore, but it would have been nicer if they managed to do it while anyone still cared about the Legion.” Ah, the “Rip Van Winkle” reboot of the […]

A Most Modest Flower: Day 26

February 26th, 2016

(from “Flight” by Tom Peyer, Jeffrey Moy and W. C. Carani in Legionnaires #23, March 1995) “Can we just go back to the lime green miniskirt?” Sequences like the above were the reason I adored this era of the Legion. There were plenty of quips about the “Archie-fication” of the team, but I appreciated that […]

A Most Modest Flower: Day 25

February 25th, 2016

(from “Membership Drive” by Tom McCraw, Mark Waid, Lee Moder and Ron Boyd in Legion of Super-Heroes v4 #66, March 1995) “I suppose I can live with the reboot if it means getting to kick Micro Lad’s ass again.” The post-Zero Hour LSH was everything a reboot should be — a perfect blend of old […]

A Most Modest Flower: Day 24

February 24th, 2016

(from “Five Years Later…” by Keith Giffen, Tom & Mary Bierbaum and Al Gordon in Legion of Super-Heroes v4 #1, November 1989) “Time to crank some Bratmobile and burn ions until I see the moons of Winath.”

A Most Modest Flower: Day 23

February 23rd, 2016

(from “Dead End” by Paul Levitz, Greg Larocque and Mike Decarlo in Legion of Super-Heroes v3 #22, May 1986) “I guess we’ll have to wait another twenty-five years to explicitly state it, then.” The awkward early days of the Legion’s real power couple.

A Most Modest Flower: Day 22

February 22nd, 2016

(from “If You Think the Khunds Are Cuddly…” by Paul Levitz, Steve Lightle and Larry Mahlstedt in Legion of Super-Heroes v3 #13, August 1985) “Thank Valor for reboots.” If you haven’t read the issue (or couldn’t tell from Sun Boy’s talk of “hit points”), the above sequence took place during a game of holographic D&D […]
