A Few Continuity Notes from Legion Of Super-Heroes #9 (Spoilers)
A few notes from friend-of-Bleeding Cool, Caoimhe, over the new Legion Of Super-Heroes #9, out today. Written by Brian Bendis and drawn by.. everyone.
Saturn Girl's pink bikini and Cosmic Boy's … whatever it is…
….mean that the Mike Grell Legion Of Superheroes costumes come back into continuity.
Talking of names, as promised last year by Brian Bendis, Boom Studios Vice President, Marketing, Arune Singh, former Marvel Comics marketing man – my former editor of Lying In The Gutters at Comic Book Resources, is now Monster Boy. As for the planet of choice, Tor-Etto? He has been compared to Vin Diesel's character Dominic Toretto from Fast & Furious often…
Now one of an invisible alien race from the planet Kit-Son, named after L.E.G.I.O.N. artist Barry Kitson.
White Witch is the birth daughter of the wizard Mordru this time around. Previously she was his wife, and trapped in an abusive relationship. Presumably that specific relationship won't be revisited.
And did anyone notice anything was meant to be going down between Saturn Girl and Superboy? Even in the current costume?
Now to try and get A Great Darkness to line up with Donny Cates' Black Winter…

I bought mine from Piranha Comics in Kingston-Upon-Thames. Piranha Comics is a small south London comic store chain with a small south-east store in Kingston-Upon Thames's market centre, which runs Magic The Gathering nights on Fridays, and a larger south-west store in Bromley, which also runs Magic nights and has an extensive back issue collection and online store.
