But there is more here than meets the eye, as those in power want what everyone wants – to stay in power. And to do that, they have no shortage of super-powered humans at their command. Converts? Well, no, not really. They’re still slaves.
Last issue I made a Legion of Super-Heroes reference. This issue, writer Tim Seeley makes one. And from what I hear, there have been several others made in other DC titles. Is this an effort to tighten a more cohesive DC Universe, or simply a means to appease long-time Legion fans? (Present and accounted for!) Or, better yet, could it be the forerunner to the Legion’s return to the DCU?
Until now, I have been unfamiliar with the work of artists V. Ken Marion and Sandu Floria. I think it’s among the best I’ve seen in the Green Lanterns title – detailed, textured and expressive. DC could do a lot worse than make this art team regulars on the book of their choice. I doubt I’ll see that happen, at least until DC returns to a monthly publishing schedule. But I look forward to seeing more of their work, wherever it may appear.
