Oh my this is getting sooooo complicated... and I KNOW all of Legion history. How is any new freader to jump on board if they make the BEGINNING this complicated???

I really love to see Levitz-era Legionnaires jumping around, but I don't see how this could come to a satisfying end... I really don't...

Thanks for posting this info, though. I quit the new JLA book after 4 issues because I just did not get what it was all about, especially because I did not know all those villains. Except for Grundy.

Chemical King, at this point I think they are just going to bring back the old complicated DC. smile

New readers? It's not like there is a ton of new readers jumping on. I think they figured in this new direct market world that the same amount of readers will jump on no matter what.

I honestly don't think there is a Earth2, etc. I think they just all remember there being multiple earths. But what does that mean for the Legion?

Well I think it might be the WaK KK only because Batman says he is from the 31st century, and isn't only the current one from there, or is the one before it from there too?

Timberwolf, after reading what Brad Meltzer is saying about it in his latest interview, it does seem to be KK from WaK.

Quote
NRAMA: So – winding down the issue…the obvious place to end would be that final page – the tease for the upcoming crossover. One of the Starro people – Karate Kid from the Legion of Super-Heroes?


BM: Yep – that’s it – the team up is coming, and it’s JLA/JSA/LSH, baby. Acronyms abound. But if you look again at eh very first image of the Justice League we released, Karate Kid was sanding there in the background, and then we pulled him out.

Geoff [Johns] and I have been planning this since we were seven years old.
And the KK we have seen on that cover was from the current series.

There seems to be a heavy 70s influence with KK being in the present, the new Gods, the other Kirby stuff.

It's almost like they want to reboot the DCU to the time just before the DC Implosion if not in terms of continuity then certainly in the structure of the publishing line up.

Imagine how cool the JLA storyline would have been if they used the Revenger rather than Trident. Sigh. They never see the obvious choices.

Close enough to count as a Legion appearance, given the context of the book...

From Welcome to Tranquility #3 - 2 months old but which I just got today. I believe these kids are a version of Sun Boy (mish-mashed with Element Lad's soul patch), Dawnstar (feather, dark skin), Ultra Boy (bare chest). The red haired girl - ?? and the girl in purple makes me think of Violet, because of the colour, or even a female Lyle (Leila?) because of the jacket.

Maybe the WaK Legion connects to the Wildstorm universe and the pre-boot Legion to the DCU.

That's an intriguing idea, Fat Cramer! I like it!

Not sure if this is "DCU Proper" but completists may like to know about it.
Mordru appears in the following DC Novel.

DC Universe: Trail of Time
Hachette Book Group, March 2007 (343 pages, $6.99)
ISBN: 0-446-61659-1

Living in a dark world of terror alerts and censored media, Clark Kent has no memory of being anything other than human-until the Phantom Stranger appears to tell him that he is really Superman, and that all of Earth has fallen prey to malevolent magic. For 1,500 years, three evil sorcerers have been casting a spell to warp reality, pervert the flow of Time, and render superheroes helpless. Now the heroes, helped by four legends of the Old West, must launch desperate manhunts through history's worst massacres. For these wizards are fueling their power with human blood-even as they wait to destroy Superman in temporal death traps...

If I was going to use some two-bit villain for a JLA storyline that I'd later use to play "Karate Kid" in my JLA/JSA cross-over, then I'd pick someone from Val's series in the 70's.

Looking over the list of possibilities...

<strike>Nemesis Kid</strike> - KARATE KID #1
<strike>Major Disaster</strike> - KARATE KID #2 & 11 & 13
The Revenger - KARATE KID #3
<strike>Master Hand</strike> - KARATE KID #4
<strike>Commander Blud</strike> - KARATE KID #5 & 6
<strike>Gyro-Master</strike> - KARATE KID #7
<strike>Pulsar</strike> - KARATE KID #8 & 9
<strike>Black Dragon II</strike> - KARATE KID #10
<strike>Lord of Time</strike> - KARATE KID #12 & 13 & 15
<strike>Diamondeth</strike> - KARATE KID #14

I'd pick the Revenger, certainly over Triton. Where's the symmetry?

Thanks for the info on Revenger! Maybe choosing someone from KK's own series either might've tipped their hat too soon or it might've called into question whether or not those stories are in continuity. Either way, it'll be interesting to see how Val ended up here.

I did think about whether anyone would suspect Val, but the twist came out of left field that I'd be impressed if anyone bothered to suggest it. It might also have helped if they used other ultra-obscure 70's villains that have never appeared since. I may even try to come up with "my" substitutes for Plastique and Electrocutioner, but chalk it all up to a missed opportunity.

And DC's continuity is so whacked, I'd doubt that the Revenger would have thrown much of a wrench into it.
