In this episode of The Legion Clubhouse, we take a look at Adventure Comics #303 and Adventure Comics #304, which features the death of a Legion member.
In this episode of The Legion Clubhouse, we take a look at Adventure Comics #301 and Adventure Comics #302, and discuss what might just be the dumbest origin story of all time. Plus, what happens when you lose your powers?
In this episode of The Legion Clubhouse, we examine Superboy #98, and Adventure Comics #300 and discover the point where the Legion goes from a plot device to main event. Also, Legion of Super-Heroes writer, Mark Waid stops by to talk about his favorite Legion member.
In this episode of The Legion Clubhouse, we look at Adventure Comics #293, and Action Comics #287. What do you do when the Legion is taken down by brains in jars? What’s a Whizzy?
In this episode, we take a look at Superman #147, and Action Comics #290. There is evil afoot, and only the Legion of Super-Heroes (with Superman and Superboy) can stop them!
Or – “Sometimes, You Just Need A Goofy Silver Age Tale…” When it comes to the Retro Review, there are times where I want to be topical, times where I want to be informative, times where I want to convince you of the awesome that nobody but me recognizes. And sometimes, Supergirl uses the computer at the Fortress of Solitude as her personal matchmaker, which is such a perfectly goofy comic book moment that we all need to KNOW about it, dammit!
Or – “The Heavy Legacy Of Condo Arlik…” Chemical Kid’s brand of ‘leadership’ has brought him and his teammates to his (hilariously named) home planet Phlon, where Chem’s illusions about home and dear old dad have been seriously tested. Their chances of making it through the Academy are getting slimmer all the time, but even if they do make it, there’s no guarantee that the Legion won’t treat them like they do poor Power Boy (not to mention how they treat their own seasoned veterans.) Not that I’m bitter, mind you…
Or – “Fast Times At Thirtieth Century High…” With one bad decision under their belts, it’s much simpler for the kids of the Legion Academy to make a few more bonehead plays… Is there any chance of them making it to their second year?
Or – “Hey, I Forgot About This!” One of the unpleasant side effects of working on the fringes of the comic industry is that, sometimes, you get caught up in solicitations and coming attractions and forget that a particular event hasn’t actually HAPPENED yet. I’ve been looking forward to the Legion Academy story and the return of Phil Jiminez to the 30th Century for some time now, but was pleasantly surprised when it arrived this week. It’s one of the most talented artists of our time, plus Bouncing Boy and Duplicate Damsel? SOLD!
