I don't like the idea of a superfighter guy who's learned everything there is about fistfighting but can get jolted by one lightning zap. Besides, he was unique in the 31st century where there were all powered beings in the Legion- in the era of Shiva, Richard Dragon, Black Canary, Seven Deadly Brothers , Bronze Tiger, Batman, Nightwing and Deathstroke there's an awful lot of martial artists out there to use.

> > I don't think Geo-Force will be joining. If he was, he would have been part of the team picture in issue #7. I think that he was one of Meltzer's red herrings. Meltzer has his 11 members now. And I don't think McDuffie will be adding any new members without trimming away some.

He is on one of the covers and there could be a subplot involving his Terra powers and blackouts.

> I don't think either one is going to join. I think Karate Kid will be with the new LoSH that will most likely come out of this and Geo-Force will join the newly made Outsiders. Also, I think McDuffie is going to increase the teams numbers quite a bit. This is the guy who wrote JLU and I'm pretty sure I saw it somewhere that he likes larger teams and putting smaller side teams together for adventures. Or not.
Funny thing is , KK is right there in Supergirl's Legion book, so he had to go home sometime.

I'd love the idea of a bigger League, maybe they could move that over to Classified, in the vein of a more mature JLU Adventures comic book.

We already have Wally West joining, so why not:

-John Stewart (formally, I've never considered him off the list)
-Martian Manhunter (he can't show up, but just induct him!)
-Freddy Freeman (should he pass the Trials of Shazam)
-Rocket Red One (touted as a possible member a few months back in Green Lantern)
-Booster Gold (though he should be made to fight for it without using his Rip Hunter exploits - mind you, their dialogue is strikingly similar in 52; turn it up to 11! )

there should be active representation (not membership) from the Shadowpact, Checkmate, the Great Ten and the JSA- a kind of liason person.

> He is on one of the covers and there could be a subplot involving his Terra powers and blackouts.

Could you please post this cover? DC hasn't released any covers past issue #13.
