I know it's a little cheap to cross-post something from another blog I'm participating in, but I love the Hot or Not feature we're doing over in the Legion of Super-Bloggers that I want to promote it elsewhere. The idea was to host a chat with various awesome women from my entourage, none of which had any familiarity with the Legion of Super-Heroes, about the relative "hotness" of various male Legionnaires (though the female Legionnaires get invariably splashed through their relationships with those guys). The result of rambunctious and frequently funny, with some pathos thrown in when they find out such and such a Legionnaire was killed in action. We're doing them biweekly in order of joining the team, and I've already given you access to the guys from Cosmic Boy to the first Invisible Kid. It's been months since then, we even added a member to the Hot or Not team with the dry-witted Science Girl at one point (joining punmistress Lip-Bomb, her sweet sister DJ Nath, loopy Art-Girl, harsh Shotgun, wise divorcée Havana Nights, and myself, like a man caught in the crossfire), so here are the next 11 Legionnaires they tackled...
Brainiac 5 is one of my favorite Legionnaires, but I'm not sure his attitude was appreciated by the girls. They much preferred Supergirl.
Superboy was fun because there are many live action versions to discuss.
Ultra Boy is probably hot, right? But will the girls clutch Phantom Girl closer to their hearts?
Star Boy's up next. It's time to talk about beards. Collateral damage: Dream Girl.
Sun Boy, poor Sun Boy, may just be the most hated of all Legionnaires. And an inside joke is born.
Bouncing Boy may prove to be relationship material. Just ask Duo Damsel, she's in here too.
Mon-El is Science Girl's first Legionnaire and - oops - has cupid's arrow struck so soon? Shadow Lass also in the crosshairs.
Matter-Eater Lad is of a type we see a lot in our particular group of friends. Will we find out why they're all single? Also, some talk of Saturn Queen!
Element Lad brings a whole other dynamic, especially with the whole Shvaughn/Sean Erin relationship.
Ferro Lad is disfigured, sure, but don't underestimate the power of METAL!
Karate Kid's review came out just last weekend. Collatoral damage: Princess Projectra/Sensor Girl!
If you like these, please leave comments somewhere. I love to give the girls feedback. Example: You might tell them to tone down the camping jokes. (Ok maybe that one's just for me.) And oh, no spoilers ;-). Is there a Legionnaire in this list - boy or girl - whose hotness can't be denied?
