Issue #7 Review

What Happened That You Have To Know About:

Brainy finds he sent himself a secret message while Lemnos was taunting him, warning himself that Colu was Lemnos' next target. So he, Saturn Girl, Light Lass and Chameleon go to Colu to stop whatever's going to happen from happening. When they get there, they find that the Coluans have been memorywiped, and Brainy freaks out. They detect that Lemnos was the cause of this and almost catch him, but he gets away. It is implied that he's not going to be able to make them forget him this time.

Meanwhile, all is not well at Legion HQ. Sun Boy is thinking about quitting, nobody trusts Triplicate Girl because she's a spy for Cosmic Boy, and Cosmic Boy, Phantom Girl, Lightning Lad, Invisible Kid and Triplicate Girl break into Brainy's lab in his absence, to learn all his secrets.


Good issue. Imaginative uses of Cham's powers, and also Light Lass's. I'm surprised Lemnos' hand has been tipped this soon, but I'm glad to see it; anything to advance the plot. We get a few looks into Brainiac 5's head - what kind of trauma has he been through? People thought he was stupid? His rant about Light Lass and Star Boy was perfect, and entirely in character considering his similar take on Dream Girl a few issues ago.
