Hey, we passed our 100,000 hit over the weekend! How about that? Not bad for a blog that's been around for less than 2 years! Thanks to you for making this blog a success.
And when we speak of success, we need look no further than Superboy & LSH v1 #218!
Why? Well, because we see the second appearance of Infectious Lass for one thing!
Oh, Quake Kid.... I appreciate how desperate single guys can get, but the girl's whole shtick is that she spreads disease. I loves me some Infectious Lass as much as anyone, but is this really the girl you want to go for? I mean, really? Did someone shout "last call!" and I just didn't hear it?
Attacked.... so suddenly.... I wasn't ready..... oh, where's that Legionnaire whose super-power is the ability to foresee the future? Why didn't she warn us? Oh, it's me? Whoops!
Also, what was Dream Girl proposing she would have done even if she'd had a month to prepare? The girl sleeps. And talks about it. She ain't exactly front line infantry material...
This was actually the issue that was supposed to show that Tyroc really deserved his invite to the Legion. And, if you don't know who Tyroc was, don't worry - neither does anyone else.
Anyhoo, Tyroc is now facing the guy who has temporarily has all the powers of Superboy. And no, it wasn't Nemesis Kid, because that would have been too awesome:
Ok, everybody got that? He's just as formidable as Superboy! Remember that, because it's important! And try not to get distracted by the fact that his name is "Absorbency Boy" and it sounds like a brand of tampon you'd find at the dollar store. Focus, dang it! Focus!
Ok, I'll buy that Tyroc took advantage of the fact that AB overshot the use of his power and that was his downfall. I get it and it was very clever blah, blah, blah.
But since when is Superboy vulnerable to a "bonk" in the clavicle?
See what I mean? AB is essentially Superboy right then, but he gets taken out by a karate chop! And a non-Karate Kid karate chop to boot.
Say it with me: That makes no sense!
Just getting back to our roots for a moment there.
See you tomorrow!
