Triplicate Girl goes on 3 dates…at the same time! Brainiac 5 plans a coup while Cosmic Boy (aware of Brainiac’s plans) readies himself. This is a ‘Origins and Omens’ issue of the threeboot Legion.
The children of Naltor (Dream Girl‘s home planet) cannot sleep. Brainiac 5 deduces that the Public Service, which all under-agers are plugged into, is being used by Naltor’s elders to keep them from sleeping. Naltorians can view further into the future while sleeping than they can while awake. The elders have seen visions of a war in the near future where many of their children will be killed on the front lines. The elders thought they were sparing the Naltorian youth from the grief of knowing their fate. What do the Legionnaires do?
While rereading the first issue of the threeboot Legion I remembered something that I’d noticed a while back about the Legion logo. The old logo has a ‘shooting star’ above the ‘L’ with the star falling while the threeboot logo has the star shooting up. Does anyone know if there’s any significance to that change? Check it out after the break.
I won’t lie: I really like the threeboot Legion. There’s no Legion-on-Legion snark in this issue so instead I’ll give some reasons why I think this version of the Legion rocks.
