This is it! The big one! Superboy leaves the Legion never to return again… well, for a couple of years, at least. Join the subs while they take a look at Legion of Super Heroes 259.
Darren and Paul get into the final issue of Superboy and the Legion of Super Heroes. What will drive Superboy away from the Legion? How will Brande deal with his bankruptcy, and how soon will we see the Legion on Supergirl (there are some minor spoilers for Supergirl. We announce them, and tell you how far ahead to skip!)?
Happy New Year! Paul kicks off the year with 2 back to back issues of The New Adventures of Superboy, issues 22 and 23. Superboy exiles himself from Smallville after he makes too many mistakes. Where will he go?!? Also, the origin of the signal lamp, and an adventure of the Dog Detective of Smallville! Lots happens in these issues, including the origin of one of Silver Age Superman’s more ridiculous villains!
The Subs take a look at two Legion holiday tales. The first is from the 1980 DC Comics Super-Star Holiday Special, and the second from Teen Titans Go (2013 series) 49.
We wish our listeners a safe and happy holiday season!
As the holiday decorations go up at Subs HQ, Darren, Travis and Paul give their commentary on the 80s holiday classic movie Gremlins! More Holiday fun will land next week as well! In the meantime, pop the movie on and join us as we experience it again!
Paul takes a look at New Adventures of Superboy 21. Superboy meets his match with Super Salesman Huey B Mckay. Huey can sell anything to anyone, including a new super power!
Paul, Travis and Michael talk about Superboy and the Legion 257. Topics include: Legion speculation in the Crisis on Earth X crossover event on the CW, Gerry Conway’s run on the Legion, Steve Ditko’s fill-in stories and the paradox of fun-size candy bars.
The Legionnaires resort to desperate measures to restore Brainiac 5’s sanity, and it’s making the Subs crazy!
The Subs go back in time to Smallville, and then back even further to Krypton on a fateful day, in order to save the world. It’s fill-in madness, along with the latest in Legion news and some character talk.
The Subs talk about part 2 of the League of Super Assassins story, but before that, they get into a discussion (thanks to James Purcell on the Facebook page) about Alan Moore and Curt Swan’s Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow. Was it a response to the darkening of comics, or was it a further salvo in that darkening? Listen to our thoughts, and share your own on the Facebook page, or by email!
