A profile in mediocrity: Mwindaji

This my companion post to Otaki. Mwindaji was a character from the Retroboot, appearing in a handful of issues from volume 7.  Presumably, he was part of a new class at the Academy along with Otaki after Comet Queen and the others moved up.  I feel like Otaki and Mwindaji

Electric Warriors round two

I really need to be more on top of these issues reviews as EW#3 is dropping this week. So hopefully most will have read this issue and not be spoiled.

Defensive powers - a summation

I think most of my blog posts about Legionnaires are starting to wind down but this topic seems to be what it all boils down. 

Now, let me classify what I consider defensive powers:  those powers and abilities that do not cause a direct change against an opponent or their environment.  Most of the Legionnaires can be categorized  in one of these two groups however, if Projectra was able to use her powers to actually upset someone's sense of balance, she could actually branch over into an offensive power.  But for the most part, those with defensive powers have to rely on evasion in some form or another.  How many times has Dawnstar had to get cruisers to chase her in order to get them to crash?

A case of Karate Kid

Unfortunately, the past two months have been busy, so I apologize for not posting more.  I ran of out of some of my easier topics.  I'm working on a big one that I might have to split, so let me get some thoughts out on Val Armorr, Karate Kid.

Should have been a contender, issue 8

This is sort of an odd one here.  Both a villain and a hero at one point, because he did not seem very evil.  He just wanted to belong!  He tried out for the Legion and was rejected, joined the LSV, but eventually ended up joining the Subs in Vol 4.  It's Ron-Karr.

Electric Warriors #1 - spoilers abound.

Finally getting down to writing some thoughts on this issue.  The issues starts out, letting us now that this is not an Earth we are familiar with.  The year is 2735 and humans are no longer the dominant species.  Turns out that animals have been transformed into language proficient, bi-pedal beings and take over a la Animal Farm. In the first few pages we find out that Earth is attempting to rejoin the United Planets and that a human and animal representative will split the title of Electric Warrior which is to be some type of Planetary Champion.

A profile in mediocrity: Otaki

I did not make it to the comic book store due to bad weather in the northeast so I did not get Electric Warriors #1 from my LCS.  I hope to get it for next week.  Besides my schedule is off since I just did a "review" last week.  So I'll try something a little different this time.

Otaki was a character from the Retroboot, appearing in a handful of issues from volume 7.  Presumably, she was part of a new class at the Academy after Comet Queen and the others moved up.
