What a time for this preview to come out ...

NOooooo




I mean, come on.

Ridiculous. Zombie dude? or worst ... Zombie Surfer?
Crap
Please not my prize leader!!

Others and sneak preview of pages HERE

I also don't like Blok. Didn't care for Dawnstart either, at first, but slowly growing on me. At least she looks more age appropriate now I guess? They certainly didn't shy away from the Native American type history. Matter-Eater Lad is another whiff in my eyes, but DreamGirl, while totally different, does look pretty cool. Is that a big black bouncing boy I see inside the ring of cover #2? Also trying to think who the girl with the slot-glasses could be?
Most seem okay, I guess, but ...
But still, Element Lad?

Still trying to figure out that girl in pink, but now I am wondering if that guy I was talking about inside the ring circle could actually be Polar Boy. His hair looks a little "icy". I guess I went the body shaming angle and just assumed a chubby dude would be Bouncing Boy?
 Grin
EDIT - And only going off the green outfit here but, could that be the new Shrinking Violet behind Super Boy's left shoulder? And is that Queen Projecta in the pink? With slotted Glasses? Not sure how that connects ...  Grin

Lightning Lass

Real name:  Ayla Ranzz
Home world: Winath
Powers:  Electrical manipulation; control and generation of electrical fields.
Later gravity negation, then regained her original powers.
First appeared First appeared and joined in Adventure Comics #308 (May 1963).

Origin & History
Ayla Ranzz was the twin sister of a founding member of the Legion of Super-Heroes, Garth Ranzz (Lightning Lad), and the younger sister of the villainous Mekt Ranzz (Lightning Lord). While traveling from their home planet of Winath, all three siblings became stranded on the 'lightning world' of Korbal, where they were attacked by powerful creatures known as lightning beasts. Rather than being killed, the Ranzz's somehow survived the attack and gained formidable lightning powers themselves. Ayla originally joined the Legion of Super-Heroes disguised as Lightning Lad, claiming to be her brother back from the dead after his apparent death at the hands of the villain Zaryan. Ayla's impersonation of her brother was soon discovered, but she proved her worth to the team and was admitted into the Legion as Lightning Lass.

For many years she was called Light Lass, after Dream Girl used the science of her homeworld Naltor to change Ayla's lightning powers with the ability to make objects super-lightweight, or anti-gravity powers (The Light Lass powers were explained both ways over the years).

In original continuity, Ayla had two major romantic relationships: first with Timber Wolf, and later with a female teammate, Shrinking Violet, which lasted all the way to the end of original continuity.

The event known as Infinite Crisis brought together the Legions of all three continuities. Afterward, the current Legion of Super-Heroes has returned to being a close approximation of the original Pre-Crisis team prior to the Five Year Gap. Ayla Ranzz has returned to her Lightning Lass identity and possesses her original lightning powers along with a variation of her original blue and orange costume. In the Lightning Saga (which chronicled Legion events leading up to Infinite Crisis), it was mentioned that Ayla had reconciled with Timber Wolf, implying that the two may have gotten back together. However, more recent events ended that speculation; Ayla is currently in a steady romantic relationship with Shrinking Violet, just as they were at the end of original Legion continuity.

On your list of favorite Legionnaires where does Lightning Lass land?  For me she is at #24.  In hindsight, I should have swapped her out with Colossal Boy but all well, close enough.   

What's your opinion of Lightning Lass?

Man, a tough one.
Not sure where I want to place her yet ... certainly low as from what I can remember she is so derivative of her brother, especially early on, but then she does get some character development later that separates her from the mold ... but ... wasn't really a fan of hers, but I am just now relearning a lot of the legion now that I am reading them again, for the first time as an older reader. Still, eh ... as she is a sibling, how about between the two cousins at #29, for now?

#01 - Phantom Girl
#02 - Mon-El
#03 - Cosmic Boy
#04 - Brainiac 5
#06 - Chameleon Boy
#07 - Element Lad
#08 - Ultra Boy
#09 - Sun Boy
#11 - Star Boy
#12 - Lightning Lad
#14 - Shrinking Violet
#21 - Saturn Girl
#23 - Colossal Boy
#25 - Dublicate Girl
#28 - Supergirl
#29 - Lightning Lass
#30 - Superboy
