Legion Worlds 6
You are here: Rimbor
Mercenaries which her mother hired to retrieve her, however, follow her, and in a fight surrounding her giving birth (having been sent into labour by news of the Lost Legionnaires' return), despite the best efforts of the Wolf Pack, she is only saved (for expediency, the mercenaries had decided to take only her baby) by their own tracker, which had absorbed her personality traits in the process.
Taking the mercenaries' tickets, she and her baby, followed by Timber Wolf, prepare to return to Earth in a Footstep Drive ship
A Moment Here
- Set shortly after the events of Legion of Super-Heroes v4 #125
President Leland McCauley gives a speech in tribute at the unveiling of a statue to the Legionnaires lost in the Rift - in what would become known as Legion Memorial Plaza, in front of a large crowd including the surviving Legionnaires and Lori Morning - announcing the disbandment of the Legion of Super-Heroes "with full honours". He ends with a call to applaud the Legion, which the crowd duly does.
Cosmic Boy thanks the President for his "generous words," and McCauley says that, whatever his and the Legion's history, he wouldn't have wished their fate on anyone and will provide transit to any Legionnaire wanting to reach their homeworld or family. Cos thanks him, but says he thinks they just need "a moment here."
He goes over to see Spark, who is looking up at her brother and asks if she's okay. She forces out a "yes", and stutters that they don't know if Garth - or any of them - are actually dead. He manages to say "there's always hope" and they embrace sadly.
Invisible Kid asks Apparition what she's going to do, and she's not sure, saying that she thinks she'll stay there, but her mother wants her to move in with her - which Lyle notes will be awkward when her baby is born. Shocking, she asks in a low voice how he found out, but he had just been observant and found it "obvious". As Triad talks with Lori Morning and her new adoptive mother in the background, she begs him not to tell anyone, at least until she's decided what to do, and he reluctantly agrees.
Magno, in full Science Police uniform, tells Kinetix and Shvaughn Erin about his decision to join up, and Kinetix abruptly decides to follow suit - leading Shvaughn, when asked, to tell her not to do anything hasty...
Sensor and Violet talk to each other about how lost and tongue-tied they feel, and Sensor says she's mad as well - are they just to give up? They were the Legion. Vi says they will be again, but Sensor says no, over the statue of Element Lad, things have changed so much they'll never be the same again...
Later, in Legion HQ, everyone is packing up. Cosmic Boy makes an attempt at a rallying speech, but tails off, saying he just doesn't have one in him now. He begins to take off his flight ring and says that maybe they should just resign him, but Triad stops him, and puts on a holographic recording she'd received that morning which she thinks everyone should see.
It's from R.J. Brande, giving the rallying speech Cos couldn't. Apologising that he couldn't be there in person, he thanks them and tells him that, though "[his]... successor" may have disbanded the Legion, it would never go away, and ends by thanking them all for what they've been, what they've done... and what they've yet to be and do.
And one year later, the Outpost returns to UP space...
LEGION WORLDS #6
Written by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning; art by Kilian Plunkett, Mike McKone and Lanning; cover by John Cassaday.
Tinya Wazzo, the former Legionnaire known as Apparition, is on the run from mercenaries hired by her domineering mother. When they track Tinya to Rimbor, the homeworld of her late husband, Jo Nah (the lost Legionnaire Ultra Boy), Tinya is no condition to make a last stand against her pursuers. Fortunately, she's befriended a "lone wolf" of sorts along the way, and he doesn't like having his back against the wall! In the backup story (with art by Mike McKone & Andy Lanning), we go back one year in the past, to the memorial service for the Lost Legionnaires, and learn what prompted the remaining heroes to disband the Legion.
48 pages, $3.95, arrives in stores on Sept.26.
