Legion of Super-Heroes Vol 7 Wrap Up

           While this series was enjoyable to me it faced many problems that helped to lead to it being cancelled. First, in what was supported to be a way for new readers to get into reading comics the series needed too much on knowing past Legion history and stories for parts that made it very unfriendly to new leaders. In my opinion the series would have been helped by instead of having a separate mini series on the Origin of the team published along with the early series they instead used the issues to establish the characters so people could better understand them.

This series starting with Fantastic Four number 1 will examine the comics and how the Marvel Universe came to be a result of this. It will look all the major character comics some starting at issue one and others in other comics before moving to their own comic usually with issue 100. Third, September look at the Legion of Super-Heroes current run is the last issue and the comic will not longer be published. In its place in November(though it comes out in October)  I will be covering its replacement comic of Justice League 3000.

Shrinking Violet to this says. And you want to pay him a visit? There are times, Cham, When I think they're right when they say you're crazy. Chameleon Boy to this says. When don't you?
      As Validus KRAKLES and then ays. ARRRGGHHHH! Chamelon Boy says. Prison hasn't made him any pleasanter. Shrinking Violet adds. Validus isn't a him, only a beast in a cage.

 

      As both jump put of the way of his hand Chameleon Boy turning into a bug says. Zoos treat their specimens better. Shrinking Violet adds. He should have been put down long ago. He's a murderous monster. Above Vaildus says/yells. ARRGHHH!
     Outside Gravity Kid to Lighting Lass says. Validus will kill them-- Why are they doing this? Lighting Lass to this says. Cham's not any more human than that monster, Tel, Don't worry about him... ANd my little VI can take CARE of herself. Gravity Kid then says. B-but you're one of the most powerful Legionnaires- shouldn't you get in there, DO something? Lighting Lass to this says. I can't blast my way through interton, Tel-- Raw power isn't always what it's about.As they watch Validus yell ARRRGGHHH! she adds. This is THEIR mission.
       Back at Legion HQ to a walking Star Boy Polar Boy says. mission-Ready, Thom? You're moving well again. Star Boy to this says. Finally. Than as they walk. Those last couple of fights while I should have been on the sick list didn't help the recovery. Wish I could get Nura to call it quits.. As they walk into the hall of hero's he adds. Before i end up in polished Bronze. To this Polar Boy says. Morbid  Witching this on a screen Shadow Lass says. I know how he feels.



     In the room now Mon-EL puts his hand on her arm and says. You're still mourning Niedrigh... It's time to get past him. Shadow Lass to this says. Because you hated him? Wasn't his sacrifice enough to show you he was a good man, Deep down? Mon-EL to this says. I'm not talking about him-- I'm concerned about you. Holding some of her hair he adds. You need to get back to being yourself- We need you. Shadow Lass with the look of anger on her face to this says. I'll be there when the LEGION needs me, Don't worry. As she walks out she adds. And you still have my vote as leader.. But not as lover, Not again... (Mon-EL looks stone faced to this)
      In Brainiac Lab he is testing Glorith in a device and says. Don't more.. Don't argue.. And don't annoy me.. Glorith to this says. Why-- Brainiac to this says. Quiet. Then adds. Your simply showing up in Barcelona triggered a timestorm, and Earth gov's ready to blame me. As stuff happens he adds. They though getting the time institute off world would stop such incidents. Suddenly as a device falls with a HRAK Harmonia says. Your measuring device is falling. With a WHOOSH she uses he powers to send it his way and he says. Excellent Catch--  It would have taken hours to rebuild completely
      As he sets it on a desk he says. If i have to recalibrate it... WHEW.. Every setting is desynchronized... Peculiar... The fall couldn't have done this.. It's usually quite stable, Absent interference from outside chrono-forces... He then adds. Variations are very consistent, too... 79% cross-correlated. (As they talk Glorith get's up and leaves) As Brainiac turns to look at where she once was he says. Glorith...? Something very odd about...

    

      Back at the prison on a monitor a voice says. odd. Validus says. ARRRGHH. Shrinking violet to this says. odd to be standing here waiting to get squashed? Chameleon Boy to this says. No. Validus. As he starts to transform Shrinking Violet says. What are you doing? Chameleon Boy now looking like Validus says. Testing a theory. Shrinking Violet can only say. It's your hide.
      Chameleon Boy to this says. Funny, But I don't think I'm in any danger... Am I, Big Fella? As he touches Validus it disappears with a POOF and he says. No. Shrinking Violet then asks. Now how'd you..? I mean didn't he fool Mon-EL's super-vision? Chameleon Boy to this says. It takes a fake to spot one, VI. The real questions are. How'd they do it, And where is Validus now?
     At the Legion HQ the last part of Chameleon Boy's.. Is Validus now? is heard and Mon-EL says. It's impossible... I should've spotted it... Cosmic Boy who has walked in causes Mon-EL to say to him. Maybe you were right.. We should have held the election earlier. This has all been too much for me. Cosmic Boy to this says. I know how it feels. Back when we founded the Legion, It felt simpler.. Smaller problems, Easier answers. A little heroics here and there. Then people started dying.. And it wasn't so easy anymore. The bronze status in the hall started to line up... But the ones who didn't die because of what we did? The civilians... There are whole planets of them. And you saved more than your share.



     As the two grab and shake hands Cosmic Boy adds. Each term as leader has a price tag.. And its victories. I'm glad you're still standing as your's ends, Pal. As Invisible Kid appears on the monitor he asks. Am I too late, messierus? I wish to cast my Ballot.. Cosmic Boy to this says. You're the last, Jacques. Invisible Kid to this says. Bien and then votes. The winner of the election comes up and it is Phantom Girl(Guess she has been seen eh?) Cosmic Boy to this says. That's a surprise!



      The Comic ends far away with the narrator saying. A complex quark relay performs its appointed function... Until suddenly.. It doesn't. And the universe may never be the same.

This election issues was pretty good. The story was well paced and the winner was very neat to see in the end. As for the fatal five ark it is heating up nicely. However, one of the things I really liked about the artwork for this issue is the great use of facial remarks. They help to tell a thousand words more and were very well done.
