Star Trek & The Legion of Super Heroes #3

The team-up com­ic is now in its third issue and only now have the heroes of both worlds met. And, of course, they do so by get­ting into a fight. Its large­ly a point­less bat­tle, what with Braini­ac 5 being invul­ner­a­ble to phasers because of force field belt, and the oth­er super­heros being more than a match for un-pow­ered humans (or Vul­cans) even though they are car­ry­ing pow­er­ful ener­gy weapons. And just one exam­ple of that is Sat­urn Girl using her tele­path­ic pow­ers to make Lt. Uhu­ra drop her phaser.

For­tu­nate­ly for all involved, the smartest mem­bers of each team quick­ly come to the real­iza­tion that they all were not ene­mies, which is a good thing as quick­ly after, the real ene­mies arrive: the Fatal Five of the Legion (in pow­ers and weapons) cast as crea­tures from Star Trek (Gorn, Ori­on, etc.: the Emer­ald Eye is wield­ed by a green Ori­on woman.) The two teams nat­u­ral­ly work togeth­er to defeat them.

The Incredibles

The com­ic series based after the movie “The Incred­i­bles” is now being reprint­ed in mag­a­zine for­mat. I don’t know the sched­ule but soon the Dash vs. Mes­merel­la sto­ry­line will come out.
