DISCLAIMER: I can't guarantee the reliability of this report. Essentially,
the Legion chats involve about twenty-five fans shouting repeated questions
to the creators. The creators are sometimes unable to answer questions
thoroughly or clarify their responses. As a result, misinterpretations may
occur on my part.

A BIG THANKS: To James Schee for logging Tuesday's chat.
You can see L* art team Jeff and Cory's work in GEN 13 #38, out this month.
He pencilled 7 pages for a subplot involving Lynch, but they don't show
the title heroes. He also drew a gorilla for this story.
Dragonmage is supposed to be shorter than most of the Legionnaires.
In theory, Brainiac 5.1's force field could repel Charma's pheromones. Tom
said that light and sound are the only things that the belt can't keep out.
We haven't seen Gates much recently because he's been trying to avoid
Tom thinks Kinetix won't stop searching for power, despite all the troubles
her power lust has caused her.
Tom is trying to convince L* co-plotter Roger Stern to work on an
Jeff pointed out that L* #70's subtler references to the TV show and video
game POKEMON were the magnoball and the girl Kuniko's outfit. The look of
the battlefield, a mixture of the works of M.C. Escher and Jack Kirby, was
Roger Stern and Carmela Merlo's idea.
Cosmic Boy defeated Domain by powering up the field on himself to draw the
spheres in, and he also got extra power from brother Pol. Save for a few
seconds at most, time didn't pass outside Domain's realm while Cos and
others were inside.
Though Rokk was nearly assassinated by Cuspin's order, he won't go after
his ex-agent. Tom said that's because Rokk's mother will ask him not to,
and he'll have to go after the Elementals anyway. The Krinn family will
show up again in L* #71. However, don't expect Cuspin to get away so cleanly.
Jeff has slightly modified Apparition's costume. Soon you'll see her in a
cross between her first (postboot) costume, and the one that Lee Moder gave
her after she died and returned. She'll also go back to the wavy hair she
had before it went flat.
Tom said that we'll see Saturn Girl "from a different point of view" in L*
#75, which focuses on the the three founders.
XS returns in L* #76.
Tom said L* #77 will hopefully show Apparition "meeting someone who shares
her predicament," whatever that means.
Scott Kolins will design Kinetix's new costume, which debuts in LSH #119.
It'll still be green. Tom pointed out that Scott draws Zoe's hair rather
full, so it's hard to tell whether it's still floating or not.
