The Legion Of Super-Heroes: The Betrayer From Beyond
If it's Wednesday, there must be a traitor in The Legion.
Seriously, these guys were so often screwed over from within their own ranks, it's a wonder somebody didn't just go the whole hog, and invent a character called Traitor Lad, and have it be him every time.
This time round though, it's one of the new Legion applicants who's the bad egg, but which one? Is it Infectious Lass, or Molecular Master, or is it my namesake Porcupine Pete?
Oh right, the covers already given it away. Nice one, DC.
This issue also features the ( because you demanded it! ) return of one my all-time favourite Legionnaires, Wildfire, who'd bravely sacrificed himself a few issues previous, and of course, it's from Dave Cockrum's run, still the best Legion artist for me, and next to Kirby, comics' greatest costume designer.
Sadly, none of the applicants this issue make the grade and get in the team, not even Infectious Lass, who has the power of making blogger's come up with a million inappropriate gags about her.
But then, I guess what Bouncing Boy & Duo Damsel get up to at night already covers that one, and as we know, you can't have the same superpower twice in the Legion.
