Comet Queen

Real name: Grava
Home world: Extal Colony
Powers: Space flight, comet gas extrusion.
First appeared in Legion of Super-Heroes vol. 2, #304 (October 1983) as a student at the Legion Academy.
Joined between Legion of Super-Heroes vol. 6, #16 (October 2011) and Legion of Super-Heroes vol. 7, #1 (November 2011).
Comet Queen was created by Paul Levitz and Keith Giffen


Origin & History
A teenager from the planet Quaal-III, Grava was starstruck by the Legion and hoped to join by replicating the original powers of Star Boy. Taking her star-ship on an intercept course with the closest comet, Grava jumped through its tail naked and came out mutated with different powers than she had hoped for. This did not detour her and Grava bid her time, and built up some credits, to fly off to Earth and set out to prove herself worthy of Legion membership.

Many years before, Bouncing Boy appeared as part of a good will tour at the Spiral Arm Colony. There, he met a strange alien girl calling herself Comet Queen. Comet Queen wanted to join the Legion of Super-Heroes, but Bouncing Boy had difficulty understanding her unending use of slang terminology. To prove herself worthy of Legionnaire status, Comet Queen took off towards the Lava Seas in search of the mythical remains of the alleged natives of Quaal-III. Bouncing Boy bounced off after her, afraid that the region would be too dangerous for the overzealous girl. He eventually caught up with her, but the two became trapped inside of an active volcano. Bouncing Boy tried to stop her before she hurt herself, but they both ended up stuck in a volcanic vent. Bouncing Boy told Grava to use her powers to emit fumes and short out the vent's circuits. After this incident, Bouncing Boy invited Grava to join the Legion Academy, and she accepted exuberantly, taking the moniker Comet Queen.

After the events of Legion Lost, the Legion found itself severely shorthanded. Seeking to fill ranks, the Legion pulled the entire senior class out of the Legion Academy and brought them into the Legion proper. Comet Queen was one of these inductees, along with Chemical Kid, Dragonwing, Glorith & Harmonia. After a couple issues she betrayed the Legion to their enemies the Dominators. The book got canceled before the story line got resolved.


On your list of favorite Legionnaires where does Comet Queen land?  For me she lands at #42 and is the last member I really know anything about.  The last four I only vaguely recognize.      

What's your opinion of Comet Queen?

Chemical Kid

Real name: Hadru Jamik
Home world: Phlon
Powers: Catalyze chemical reactions.
First appeared in Legion of Super-Heroes vol. 6, #6 (December 2010) as a student at the Legion Academy.
Joined between Legion of Super-Heroes vol. 6, #16 (October 2011) and Legion of Super-Heroes vol. 7, #1 (November 2011).
Chemical Kid created by Paul Levitz and Phil Jimenez


Origin & History
Hardu Jamik's father, a wealthy businessman on his homeworld of Phlon, synthesized the abilities of the deceased Legionnaire known as Chemical King. Mr Jamik used his own son as a guinea pig with successful result in order to allow his son to play super-hero and become famous. Chemical Kid enrolled at the Legion Academy with the goal to become a famous Legionnaire. He quickly garnered a reputation amongst the staff for being spoiled and a troublemaker for constantly disobeying orders to go out and spend his father's money.

On a joyride back home to Phlon, Hadru and his classmates helped rescue his father from the villain Black Mace and defeated another Phlon resident who had stolen Mr. Jamik's work to give herself Chemical King powers as well. He is closest to fellow student Dragonwing and has used his abilities in conjunction with the mystical Glorith to actually remove the aforementioned super villainess' powers.

Following the presumed death of seven Legionnaires, Chemical Kid and his remaining classmates in the Legion Academy are bumped up to active Legionnaire status with little notice.


On your list of favorite Legionnaires where does Chemical Kid land?  For me he lands at #43.  For me, he lands toward the bottom only because I know very little about him and have not read the stories he was in.      

What's your opinion of Chemical Kid?

Had to look for it, but I found it!

Okay, its all pretty much a jumble from here. I've got so many crossed out names and numbers moved on this sheet of paper that I can't make anything out clearly.
 Cheesy
They are all, from #41 and down just a crap shoot anyway. Only reason Earth-Man isn't last on my list is there is a costume I hate more
 Cheesy
Hell, Chemical Kid is only so high because I can picture Perez drawing him.
 Cheesy

If not Earth-Man, who is your least favorite, if not reviled, legionnaire Perry?

Well, I suppose he is my least favorite that I have read, I guess, in truth, but I really, really hate ... and spoilers ...  Cheesy ...  that whole idea and look of Dragonwing. Despise it. I know nothing of her, but I even hate her "real"' name. Blah!! But splitting hairs from 40 down, really, as I don't remember too much of anyone from that number and below. I mean I "remember" some of them, barley, but I either never read a story with them or I have forgotten all about most of them.
