Our Gene Gonzales/Legion of Super Heroes theme continues this week, with a look at Duo Damsel. Seems appropriate, since yesterday’s entry featured Computo.
Now I’m sure the Legion fans here know that her real name is Luornu Durgo. And that she originally had the power like all those from her planet, to split into three bodies. And that one of her bodies was destroyed by Computo, making her code name changed from Triplicate Girl to Duo Damsel. And that she married Chuck Taine, aka, Bouncing Boy. And that Dave Cockrum redesigned her costume to be an important part of the story where it first appeared. Yes, there are dozens of details about her that I’m sure we all know that come from the time period long past the Cockrum/Grell period of the Legion.Â But I know one thing more: October 5 is her birthday – At least according to the 1976 SUPER DC CALENDAR that hangs in my studio. :)
