Just make sure you skip that Fogotten Queen. Or, I guess try the first issue if you want to try it, but do not buy the trade or multiple issues until you know that you want it

Oh I dropped that off my Wish List awhile ago after you panned it in the Weekly Reader thread.

=============================================

X-O Manowar 24 - Probably wasn't a good idea trying to read during a break at work.  But at least it was mainly fight panels.  Good art and good battle.


I'm sure I will get caught up with the rest in no time......

Duplicate Girl (Formerly Triplicate Girl and Duo Damsel)

Real name:  Luornu Durgo
Home world:  Cargg
Powers:  The ability to create numerous duplicates (Originally, the ability to split into three bodies.)
First appeared in Action Comics #276 (May 1961), already a member.  Revealed in Superboy #147 (May/June 1968) to be the Legion's fourth member.
Triplicate Girl (now Duplicate Girl) was created in 1961 by writer Jerry Siegel (the co-creator of Superman) and artist Jim Mooney.

Origin
Luornu Durgo was born on Cargg, a planet with three suns, which grants its Carggite inhabitants the ability to split themselves into three identical bodies. She left her homeworld after hearing of tryouts for the Legion of Super-Heroes, and she had each of her bodies demonstrate her power to the Legion's three founders (Cosmic Boy, Saturn Girl, and Lightning Lad) separately. Luornu then surprised them when they gathered to find they had each been approached by the same girl simultaneously. This convinced them to make her their first new Legionnaire recruit, and she joined the team under the code name Triplicate Girl.

After successfully completing many missions as Triplicate Girl, she suffered tragedy when Brainiac 5's robot Computo went rogue and killed one of her three bodies. To the surprise of the Legionnaires and in defiance of traditional Carggite physiology, Luornu's other two bodies managed to survived the loss of the third. She adopted the codename Duo Damsel, with the ability to split into two forms.

When Bouncing Boy lost his powers (temporarily as it turned out), he decided to propose marriage to Luornu, they became the Legion's first married couple. At the wedding, Luornu's second body was kidnapped by Starfinger and she temporarily lost her duplication power due to the villain coveting it for himself. But his plan was foiled by the Legion and Luornu's two selves were reunited. After the ceremony, both Chuck and Lu resigned from active duty and became Legion reservists (due to Legion bylaws, married Legionnaires could not serve full-time).

Luornu also joined the Legion Espionage Squad, a special branch of the Legion that handled covert missions. She also decided to become teacher along with her husband and ran the Legion Academy, a school designed to train prospective Legion members. They enjoyed running the Academy so much that when the Legion Constitution changed its bylaws to allow married couples, they opted to remain reserves

Years later, Luornu and Chuck helped form a new Legion of Substitute Heroes with the retired Cosmic Boy and Night Girl. When the Superboy from the Pocket Universe was killed by the Time Trapper, Duo Damsel was devastated, realizing that she still loved him. She joined a conspiracy with other Legion members, including Saturn Girl, Brainiac 5 and Mon-El, to made a pact to break the Legion code and kill the Time Trapper. In the ensuing battle, Duo Damsel lost another duplicate (the one that wore purple) and was left powerless with a single body. She continued on as an instructor at the Legion Academy but decided her fighting days were behind her after losing two of her selves, rejecting Brainiac 5's gift of a force field belt so that she could continue being a heroine.

The "Retroboot" returned the Legion to a close approximation of the original team prior to the Five Year Gap. Luornu was once again Duo Damsel and wore her classic DD costume. During the Lightning Saga, one of Duo Damsel's two bodies traveled to the 21st century to join Karate Kid on an assignment. Because her other body was still in the 31st century she couldn't duplicate, so while on the mission she called herself "Una." Tragically, both Una and Karate Kid were killed in action in the 21st century. But when Una died, Luornu's single remaining body in the 31st century somehow received a major power upgrade, gaining the ability to split into any number of bodies. Luornu changed her name to Duplicate Damsel and later to Duplicate Girl.  So far, Luornu has opted to remain an instructor at the Legion Academy rather than rejoin the Legion with her greatly enhanced powers.


On your list of favorite Legionnaires where does Duplicate Girl land?  For me she has landed at #23.  

What's your opinion of Duplicate Girl/Duo Damsel/Triplicate Girl?

Jeff, were you just at that last game with the 5 goal win? That must have been CRAZY HUGE IN THAT PLACE!!!

I was right behind the visitor goal for all of that - Row 13.  I can honestly say it was the greatest hockey game I've ever been to.  The Stars were on fire and the crowd was electrified.  I think the building was shaking.  Where has THAT Stars team been all year? ? ? ?

Sorry I'm behind on getting this out.  Been crazy this week juggling work and hockey!

I'm going to concentrate on the back log this week since I didn't get to it last week.  There's more than enough to keep me occupied.

Nothing lick Playoff Hockey....NOTHING

Great wins for the Stars and the Bs...very happy both series are now tied.

Totally Agree....FU(K ESPN

As for the Avalanch...close, 1996 was thier 1st, with the great Patrick Roy and probably one of the best defencemen to every play the game, Ray Bourque (Traded from the Bruins the yr before after 20yrs so he could get a Cup because Harry Sinden had no desire to give the Bs anything to win)
