Jeff Moy (L* penciller) was the guest on American Online's Legionnaires
Chat for Thursday, June 11. Jeff and Tom McCraw (LSH/L*
co-plotter/colorist) attended Legion of Super-Heroes Chat on Tuesday, June
16. Legion of Super-Heroes Chat takes place every Tuesday in the DC Comics
Online area of AOL at 6:00 PM EST. Legionnaires Chat is held every
Thursday in the same area at 10:00 PM EST. (Keyword: CHAT DC.) Regular
guests include Tom McCraw, Jeff Moy, Jason Armstrong, Ron Boyd and Mike
Thanks to T. Troy McNemar who originated the Legion Chat Reports; so much
of the format of these writeups was derived from his hard work.
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.
SPOILERS: Information that spoils current or upcoming issues is found
toward the end of this report. There's no spoiler space to separate such
info from the more general comments.

A BIG THANKS: To Scott Bierworth and Jim Caldwell for logging the 6/11/98
Jeff doesn't think that upcoming regular LSH penciller Scott Kolins is
manga-influenced. Kolins' first issue is #110 with no scheduled fill-ins
yet thereafter. The millionth issue of LSH is pencilled by Giffen; Tom was
very enthusiastic about Giffen's recent pages.
Jeff supposed that Gates was born with his powers, but noted that the
creators have never come up with an origin for him.
Jeff thinks that Sensor would lay eggs, rather than giving live births.
Tom thinks Supergirl should visit the 30th Century and become an honorary
There are some plans for Wildfire.
L* SECRET FILES #1 and LSH SECRET FILES #2 will be published, but Jeff
didn't know when they are scheduled for and what they will contain.
The new lineup for the WorkForce is still unknown. Evolvo and Spider-Girl
are still members. Evolvo is in it for the money. The Force won't become
the new Legion of Super-Villains.
Jeff is sure that Luornu's recent jewelry, which resembles the White
Triangle symbol, is an art mistake. In L* #63, he didn't originally draw
the triangles, but the pages were "corrected."
Jeff thought that Vi wouldn't always be wearing her new headband, designed
by Jason Armstrong.. She isn't trying to cover up the green in her hair.
LSH #109 is a spotlight on Vi, with the Emerald Eye.
XS will take part in the upcoming FLASH storyline "Chained Lightning."
A newcomer will join the team, with none leaving that Jeff knows of.
Jeff thinks that Laurel's new power involves electromagnetism, and she
still has her older powers.
Changes will soon happen to Thom.
Magic will resurface in the Legion books, as a "force to be feared,"
according to Tom.
