|2-5||The Authority has had a reputation for going up against variations on other superteams, including an evil version of the Avengers and a gender-swapped set of X-Men. It was probably only a matter of time before they decided to off a version the Legion, too. And while were at it, in the wake of September 11, lets have buildings blowing up and Arabs.|
|2-3||Behind Rushs (the winged woman) knee is a version of Elastic Lad. Between her and the machine is an Ultra Boy clone, incorporating Native American fringe from Thunderbird (who was based on Ultra Boy) and with a helmet reminiscent of Ultraman. The woman above him is a female Wildfire (based on the faceless helmet). In front of the Machine is a three-headed girl, Triplicate Girl, and the boy with the magnets would be Cosmic Boy. Below him is Sun Boy.
Below Rushs feet is a version of Ferro Lad, incorporating an Iron Man look. Below the Machines feet is a version of Shadow Lass. Below the Colonels leg is Princess Projectra. Under the Surgeons hand are Porcupine Pete and Element Lad, turned into gold. Street is diving toward a gender-swapped Bizarro version (and what would be more imperfect in a duplicate than the wrong sex?) of the gender-swapped Mon-El.
In the background, attacking the building, are Dawnstar, Supergirl (in a costume and with a power effect a lot like Apollo, who is a version of Superman), Star Boy (with a star for a head), and Lightning Lad, plus Polar Boy making ice at the bottom (and wearing a Santa cap) and a dinosaur (Beast Boy?) destroying a car.
Teuton is flying to attack a female Colossal Boy. Floating behind her is a female Bouncing Boy. Above her is presumably a male Phantom Girl (there being few other Legionnaires not accounted for). Below is Chameleon Boy (holding an Arab), then Saturn Girl (with a ring around her huge head), and Superboy (again with the Apollo appearance). And in the lower-right corner are Lightning Lass and the computer Brainiac 5.
Below Teuton is Timber Wolf (looking a lot like Wolverine), Karate Kid, the gender-swapped Mon-El (Mon-Ellen?), and Matter-Eater Lad (eating a person).
Shrinking Violet and Invisible Kid are notably missing from the tableau. She appears in 3:5; hes probably here somewhere, but we just cant see him. (Im sure the Authority kills him, too, though.)
