So, I've forced myself through about 250 issues of Adventure Comics and the Legion has only appeared once. It appears I've got many miles to go before they become a regular fixture. Had I known this, I might have taken a cyanide suicide pill around 150 issues ago, but we're too far along to quit now! Certainly not with deliciously awful Superboy solo tales like that of Adventure Comics Number 250.
Now, you'd think that at a milestone like that, there would be hoopla. Well, there wasn't much. They didn't even make a stink about it on the cover, which is interesting, because you know that never would have flown with Stan Lee.
It seems like Mr. Future Man could have saved us a lot of grief if he'd said "Lorac is disguised as LANA LANG!" A little less verbosity and a few more proper nouns could have saved everyone a lot of stress. "Lorac is disguised as one of your friends or neighbors?" Seriously, what the hell is that? Why did he have to be so cryptic?
But, stupid as this story was, it did make me do a little research. Cobalt doesn't explode, folks. At its most menacing, it's an isotope. Big mushroom clouds like they're showing there? Not so much.
I'll call the store and order a television.... wait a second, I'm a sole proprietor. There's no one there to answer the phone! Dang!
EVERYONE'S WATCH HAS STOPPED! CAN YOU FIND THE CLUE IN THIS PANEL WHERE ALL WE TALK ABOUT IS HOW EVERYONE'S WATCH HAS STOPPED? NO, SERIOUSLY! THERE'S A CLUE HERE! MAYBE YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO EVERYONE WHEN THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT HOW THEIR WATCHES HAVE STOPPED! HEY - WHAT TIME IS IT? *wink wink*!
