^Yes.

Great defense of M-E Lad, ElScoob. He can basically disintegrate anything by touching it...with the inside of his mouth. The time he chomped the Persuader's Atomic Axe in two was priceless.

Re: Geek out Smallville moment!!

I saw the trailer a few days ago and thought it was awesome. Really looking forward to Legion and have faith in Geoff Johns...I got Superman and the Legion of Superheroes in anticipation of the episode since he has hinted some of that was inspiration for Legion.

He did indeed. I believe Brainiac 5 eventually managed to cure him, if memory serves.

It was also suggested in at least one story, years later, that Tenzil retained some residue of the Miracle Machine's energies after eating it, giving him the ability to influence the nature of reality (albeit unconsciously)... which may account for some of his later bizarre adventures.

I suddenly remembered another point in Tenzil's favor: in Jim Shooter's famous 'Adult Legion' story, Tenzil eventually became president of his home planet Bismoll.

A president who can eat matter in all forms. How awesome is that?

(I realize that by definition, probably any president of Bismoll would be able to eat matter in all forms. But how many of them were retired super-heroes?)

I always thought that would be a great name for Matter-Eater Dog.

You know, between Streaky the Super-Cat, Comet the Super-Horse, Krypto the Super-Dog, Ace the Bat-Hound, and Chameleon Boy's pet Proty (and its successor, the imaginatively named Proty II), that's not such a big stretch...

That picture actually looks a little like Jimmy Olsen.

^ I wouldn't be surprised if that was an actual "Superman's Pal" storyline.

Chloe looks like she might go full on bad ass for a while, which I will enjoy.

Dude, I agree! I'd love to see my beloved little blonde go bad-ass for a spell! I say turn her into the Chlovinator and let her take numbers and kick ass!




Seriously though, that promo looks good. I'm psyched for January 15.

Re: Geek out Smallville moment!!

maybe ive been at Superdickery to much, but why does Superman never help Jimmy when he gets into these situations?

They should do an issue (yeah I know its not running anymore) where Jimmy gets Clarks powers, and flys off to become Superman refusing to help him change back

Clark: Oh no Jimnmy Olsen and I have body swapped he has my powers and my identity, Lois will never believe what happened. Im alone helpless & trapped in the body of Jimmy Olesn.

Jimmy (flying away): Now you know how it feels Superman, to have your friends turn your back on you when you need their help the most, I will be Superman for ever, and soon Lois will be mine. Oh & that trick you played on me with the Green Arrow, well that was just mean, I now know that you Clark Kent was the Red & Blue blur.
