    Default Legion of Super-Heroes issue #11 preview/Spoiler discussion





    "Mark my words! This drill will open a hole in the universe. And that hole will become a path for those that follow after us. The dreams of those who have fallen. The hopes of those who will follow. Those two sets of dreams weave together into a double helix, drilling a path towards tomorrow. THAT's Tengen Toppa! THAT'S Gurren Lagann! MY DRILL IS THE DRILL THAT CREATES THE HEAVENS!"

    - The Digger

    We walk on the path to Secher Nbiw. Though hard fought, we walk the Golden Path.

    - Lor-Zod confirmed to be the Zod in question. This also puts Lor back in the Kent/El family via his kid (likely daughter) marrying into the Els.

    - This is in fact a Karakoa/Viltumite "make more Kryptonians" situation. It seems that Kryptonians are expected to and able to have quite a few kids in their lifetimes. Lor-Zod seems to be an example of this given the fact that he's nearly 1000 years old yet he still apparently had a kid that married into the El family in the 31st century meaning that he just kept having kids.

    - This also confirms that the Kryptonian lifespan is still crazy long given the fact that Mon-El is Jon's 5x great grandson yet it's 1000 years in the future. that means Jon's kids and grandkids were still having kids centuries later.

    - Mon-El is unironically one of my favorite characters in this book. His motivations are not at all sympathetic in a traditional sense, and are in fact rather entitled and childish, but there are so dang relatable in such a legit way. His unfiltered nature coupled with the very real fact that he's absurdly powerful make him such a fun twist on the mold, and a great addition to the family.

    - Pop Pop Lor-Zod is the only Lor-Zod I will accept. He's adorable.


    ---------------

    Just gonna make the guess and say Mon-El's the Legion member that goes bad in Future State and maybe the end of this story.

    So it is Lor Zod,
    but this kinda lead to the question, where is Clark and Jon in the future?

    Considering how old Lor-Zod, a full-bloodded Kryptonian, is, I think Clark is dead. And Jon being half-human probably hadn't the extended life-span.

    I imagine they're leaving what exactly happens to Jon in the future vague like they used to with Clark. But it's actually hard to say if Jon's lifespan isn't as long as a full blooded Kryptonian.

    Juts look at Mon-El's family line. He's only Jon's great great great great great grandson in 1000 years. That means Jon's descendants (who had not yet married into House Zod apparently since Lor is only Mon's grandfather) lived for at least a few hundred years easily, yet they'd have to be less than half Kryptonian given that they're Jon's line.

    Kryptonians may work under Viltumite rules where they're genetics almost completely override the genetics of whomever they mate with, thus making nearly perfect Kryptonians children. It would be the only way for Mon-El to even exist as the prime Kryptonian specimen he seems to be after 6 generations of new genetics mixing in (even with the Zod family being mixed in).

    I have not read this new legion and the truth is that I do not intend to do it, but I'm curious,
    is superman dead, missing or something like that?

    Wonderful how two words can makes me so angry.

    Edited the rest out still, don't need to rant I think.

    But it was certainly another stellar issue for me.

    Reading the issue today, I didn't get the vibe Bendis would make Jon young again to close this series out. That seems like it would be rushed if it happens in one issue, but with how random it was that Jon and saturn girl kissed I guess anything is possible.

    I don't know how the issue with Jon will be resolved, but, it seems to me that spoilers:
    there will be a time travel. Rogol Zaar managed to do too much destruction and kill Dr. Fate (he's dead, right?) to just leave it like that. And that's the only thing that fits into Jon's "great sacrifice" from solicits. And maybe that's how Jon will get deage.
    end of spoilers
    It was a great issue, by the way.
