And Speaking of Blackest Night...!

How IS that whole War of Light thing going to play out, anyway? I can't help but think that possibly THIS character will come into play. Somehow.

Oh those whacky Legionaires! If Color-Changing Lad here, can actually do this, then the whole War of Light is gonna get a whole lot more interesting. If this kid is still around and available, of course.

He's tragically stuck living a thousand years in the future, when the war's long over and the Corps got a new oath to reflect it. Plus the only mention of his status is that he's blind now, so he wouldn't know what colour he's changing things into.

Didn't they have someone similar--a girl--in the group of Replacement Legionnaires that saved everyone's butts from Earth-Man?

Yeah, the new Color Kid is a young woman who's a member of the Legion of Substitute Heroes. She can tap into the "emotional spectrum" to utilize one superpower at a time (red for super-strength, etc.), but her personality shifts wildly when she does.

The girl in the Action Subs just proves that Johns can't do anything the easy way. He has the choice between an established character with a history and a cipher who showed up less than a page's worth of panels so of course he skipped Color King! I think I'm gonna start calling it Hawkman Syndrome for all the convoluted things he had to do with that character to get it where he wanted, when just one or two snips retcon-wise would have done the trick...

Hah! I KNEW someone would know what happened to this character!

What I never understood was that Color Kid could sometimes pull a Shadow Lass on his enemies by turning the air in front of them to the "color" black. But black is not actually a color, but rather, the absence of color. So WTF?

But I thought black was the simultaneous absorption of all the colors of the spectrum by the surface in question, and white is the simultanuous reflection of all the colors in the spectrum off a surface. Therefore, by being able to manipulate how the spectrum is reflected or absorbed, wouldn't he also be able to create black and white as well?

But, Sally --! Didn't you know that Color Kid is actually the great-great-great-great-great-etc.-grandkid of Hal Jordan, the Rainbow Lantern? ;-)

I could be cracked out on this one, but couldn't Color Kid neutralize Kryptonite? I seem to recall him pulling that power out of somewhere once, which seems like a good enough power for Legion membership. ("Superboy's Bodyguard Lad") As usual, I could be wrong about this.

(Word verification, swear to god, "mospam." Well, that's helpful...)

Sea, with the number of illegitimate children that Hal has or will eventually father, he's probably an ancestor of everyone IN the Legion!

Oddly enough, yes, Color Kid COULD neutralize Kryptonite. This was not considered to be "special" enough to the rest of the Legionaires. God, I hate them so much!

I think Color Kid's neutralization of kryptonite radiation can be explained thusly. The color of incandescent radiation is dependent on its vibrational wavelength. By changing the color of kryptonite, Color Kid altered its wavelength, thus rendering its radiation harmless to Kryptonians.
