This Week’s Issues
In the opening sequence of Young All Stars we see a nightmare playing out in the dreams of Helena Kosmatos after which she learns her guardians are actually Johnny Quick and Liberty Belle. Do you think she has the ability to see the future among her other powers?
There sure are a lot of All Star Squadron members these days aren’t there? Who is your favorite and why?
What do you think of think of the new kids here? They are all pretty interesting wouldn’t you say? Whose your favorite?
Do you think that Tsunami is a traitor as Sandy insists or is he letting his prejudice color his reactions to her?
What do you think of the Axis Amerika?
Arn is quite the show off and a bit of a mystery man as well. How do suppose he came by his powers?
Even though this book was written in the late 1980s it is set in the 1940’s and as such uses certain racial slurs that were used at the time to make it more period accurate. How do you feel about this?
