Reviews Of Old Comics: Legion Of Super-Heroes #313

LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES #313 July  1984 Did you think I'd forgotten about my reviews of the Legion of Super-Heroes comics that made me fall in love with the Legion? Well, I didn't, I was just caught up in getting things up on the site. Nevertheless, we get to the end of the Legion's first series of its own, and the last stop before the launch of its own series in DC's deluxe line of books that bypassed the newsstand altogether! It also concludes a two part story that highlights the Science Police and SYNOPSIS: The Science Police and the Legion are providing security for Earth President Marte Allon whose life was threatened by a blackmailer. Science Police Chief Zendak embarrassingly explains that they believe the blackmailer is a traitor within the Science Police, which is why the Legion is helping.

Review: Convergence – Superboy & The Legion of Super-Heroes #1

I was really underwhelmed by Convergence #0, which was meant to introduce all of this event to us, but looked forward to this one, being a huge fan of the Legion. Don't believe me? Well, the thing I hate more than reading a bad comic is reading a bad comic that I really wanted to love.

Reviews Of Old Comics: Legion Of Super-Heroes #312

LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES #312 June  1984 I know the frequency of Old Comics Reviews has been a little sparse in recent months, but my duties here at Needless Essentials generally keep me from going into my collection for something older that I can review. Because I go so into detail on the synopses for these comics, Reviews of  Old Comics takes a little longer to write than a normal review. However, a very lackluster Legion appearance this month got me in the mood to resume reviewing the old issues of the Legion, now with an issue that looked at the Science Police and how the Legion works with them. SYNOPSIS: Sun Boy is in Science Police Officer's GiGi Cusinamo's apartment, romancing her, when a call comes in for an emergency at Metropolis Stadium. Sun Boy flies her there. A bomb has exploded in the middle of a Moopsball game. Colossal Boy and Element Lad were in the crowd and are able to keep damage and panic contained until the Science Police arrive. Back at Legion HQ, the injured Blok volunteers to debug the new Mission Monitor Board.

Reviews of Old Comics: Adventure Comics #342

Adventure Comics #342 March 1966 In Reviews of Old Comics, I've made a habit of reviewing comics from the 80's and 90's but I decided that I wanted to review an issue with more vintage, and decide to go with one I remember very fondly, where the Legion actually expels a member for SYNOPSIS: At Legion HQ, The Legionnaires not on missions are relaxing, playing games, dancing or seeing which members have the most fun kissing each other. When Star Boy refuses to join in, the others speculate that it's because he's still carrying a torch for Dream Girl, who left the Legion after joining under false pretenses. They test two new applicants, Calamity King and Color Kid, both of whom are rejected, and Star Boy goes to visit his parents on the remote planet Karak. When he arrives he finds that they have moved, leaving their observatory to Jan Barth, an explorer. A ship lands nearby and its pilot kills Jan Barth before he can fire his own gun. The assailant is Kenz Nuhor and he's arrived to kill Star Boy. His shield reflects Star Boy's power back at him, pinning him to the ground.
