"Starro World" from R.E.B.E.L.S. (vol.2) #8 (DC, 2009) by Tony Bedard and Andy Clarke
14 years after LEGION/REBELS wrapped up, Vril once again lost control of LEGION and went on the run in a new REBELS book. Is this an indication that people would not be interested in picking up a book called L.E.G.I.O.N., thinking perhaps it might require the same amount of knowledge that apparently sinks other Legion of Super-Heroes series? In any case, while I have had problems with some of Tony Bedard's writing - and REBELS did feature his principal flaw, stretching story lines out too long - I enjoyed his take on REBELS tremendously! Maybe you can't write a bad Vril Dox, I dunno. There were old faces like Strata and Garv, and new Legion precursors like Wildstar (Wildfire/Dawnstar) and Tribulus (Validus), and Bedard turned Starro into a major badass. Overexploited him, maybe, but that was all very cool. Of course, the REBELS were really LEGION for most of the run, without a title change, which was just weird.
