“It’s My Party and I’ll Fight if I Want To”


In space, a L.E.G.I.O.N. ship gets attacked by those it is pursuing — aliens hunting the last Vuldarians — and is destroyed.  On Earth, amidst the opening of the theme bar Warriors, Brainiac 5 appears, gets handed a beer, and disappears, returning to the 30th century.

Only scenes featuring Legion of Super-Heroes characters are dealt with here.

Analysis Notes

Cover There were two variant covers for this issue.  The most commonly seen had a cardstock cover which opened both left and right like a pair of doors to reveal the mass of characters who appeared at the opening of Warriors.  The lesser known cover was an based on Edward Hopper’s 1942 painting “Nighthawks” (which is probably better known by the version of it done by Gottfried Helnwein as “Boulevard of Broken Dreams”).  Although the official credit in this issue is for “Nighthawks”, there is more fun (or weirdness) in the mappings of Superman to James Dean, Lobo as Humphrey Bogart, Artemis as Marilyn Monroe, and Warrior as Elvis Presley.
8:1 The Dox referred to here is Lyrl Dox, who had usurped the reins of L.E.G.I.O.N. from his father using mind-control techniques.
Dialogue is from Ammon Hakk.
8:2 The character with long hair is Davroth, who has powers of flight.  The one with a mohawk is Ammon Haak, a super-strong Khund.  Both are members of the second-string L.E.G.I.O.N. team dubbed R.E.C.R.U.I.T.S.
8:3 The craft being pursued have apparently turned around.
8:3-4 These ships belong to the Tormocks, a race genetically similar to the Vuldarians.  Guy Gardner is half-Vuldarian, and the Tormocks are out to kill him.
Naggz is presumably Sol.
8:5 Dialogue is from Davroth.
8:6 Cairn is the home base for L.E.G.I.O.N.
15 This scene takes place in < >, between < > and < >.
15:3 The two standing immediately behind Brainiac 5 are Nuklon and Obsidian, former members of Infinity, Inc. and then-current members of the Justice League.
15:4 The man in the baseball cap is a cameraman covering the event, but is probably also a friend of penciller Phil Jimenez, since there seem to be a number of such real-life people sprinkled throughout the issue.  The pink-haired creature (more clearly seen in 15:6) is the monster from the “Stanley and His Monster” strip.
15:5 The character next to Nuklon is the post-Zero Hour Hawkman.
