After the battle with the Emerald Empress, it’s time to get some down time, vote Polar Boy out, and catch up with the past. Invisible Kid takes us on a ride through the Legion’s past, to when a new fresh face named Condo Arlik contemplated his opportunity to become a Legionnaire.
Darren and Paul dig into the conclusion of the Emerald Empress story, have a little TV talk, as well as a Stump the Subs!
Darren and Paul play catch up! First, they talk about the cons they recently attended, and then they go out of the Emerald Empress story to talk about the issue before that story, one which they missed previously. Oops! It’s issue 86, we haven’t found the Empress yet, Zendak is still the Chief, and Blok is trapped, but he’s not alone!
Fresh from a day at Fan Expo, Paul returns to put right what once went wrong, and records an episode about New Adventures of Superboy issue 5, which somehow was lost to the earlier coverage of the series (thanks to the eagle-eyed Thomas Lanes of the Parliament of Rooks podcast for noticing this!). How do Superboy’s powers start to diminish, and what do Ma Kent’s prize-worthy tomatoes figure into it? Also, how does this story tie into one of Paul’s all-time favourite pre-Crisis Superman stories? Those answers, and more, lie within!
