Smallville#8-11: "Legion" Discuss/Grade <SPOILERS>

CWTV:
DC COMICS’ LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES ARRIVE IN SMALLVILLE FROM THE FUTURE TO HELP CLARK STOP BRAINIAC AND THE PERSUADER — The aftermath of Doomsday’s (Sam Witwer) attack on Chloe (Allison Mack) and Jimmy’s (Aaron Ashmore) wedding leaves Clark (Tom Welling) in shock, but before he can search for the kidnapped Chloe, The Persuader (guest star Fraser Aithceson) appears and attacks him. Rokk (guest star Ryan Kennedy), Imra (guest star Alexz Johnson) and Garth (guest star Calum Worthy), also known as The Legion, step in from the future to help vanquish the Persuader and the group realizes Brainiac has taken over Chloe once again. Meanwhile, up at the Fortress, Chloe, as Brainiac, informs Davis he is Doomsday and was created to kill “the other Kryptonian” and destroy the world.
Let's welcome the Legion of Superheroes (if it isn't preempted for President Bush).

Re: Smallville#8-11: "Legion" Discuss/Grade <SPOILERS>

Is this the third or fourth notable thread "people" have started in the last 8 months since the first trickle of a germ suggested that this might be happening well before season 8 came to our screens?

I take it that Bush wants to say ttfn?

Oh, god, he is leaving right?

He hasn't changed his mind about being difficult?

LONG LIVE the LEGION!

Please, give Clark a friggin' flight ring.

I thought Bush was only getting time on the major networks and news outlets, not the CW. Well, he should be long asleep here on the west coast by the time Smallville airs here. So I should be safe at least.

Why do I imagine George entrenching in a fort made out of white house linen and pillows screaming about how they're not going to get him out of there alive?

Yes, but will Clark know what to do with it?

Good to see you, Dagman!

Clark's first (conscious) flight shouldn't be done via a Legion Flight Ring. Well, IMO anyway. It would be dumb.

I'm curious as to how they'll handle the Legion's ridiculous names. I mean, come on.

Saturn Girl: "Hello, I'm Saturn Girl. And this is Lightning Lad and Cosmic Boy."
Clark: "There's no way I can rag on Oliver for his hero name choices after this..."

BTW, can I just rate this SUPER now? It's not like it will be any different after this airs.

I thought I would enjoy the Avengers Movie.

10 years later and I can still feel the pain.

Assumptions are dangerous.

Well, I was being facetious, but I'm still pretty sure I'l really enjoy it, even if it's not quite SUPER quality.

And it took me a minute you figure out you were talking about the movie based on the British TV show, and not the comic.

Clark will probably say

" Nah I had a bad expeirience with rings. I'm going to take it one step at a time, even if it takes 9 seasons of angst!"

legion- *sigh*

They could just use their real first names of Imra, Garth and Rokk.

Oh and, hello Procutus.

They're using their real names according to the episode summary I've seen on Smallville Wiki. They have Smallvilleize Legion costumes as the pics have shown which I dig a lot. I've been looking forward to this episode, Geoff should do a great job with it. I even went and bought his Legion of Superheros arc of Action Comics because he's mentioned that some of that crept into the episode. Apprently there are a ton of geek moments in this episodes!
