The Legion of Super-Heroes vs. Galactus by Nate Stockman

Hol-ee crap. So . . . one day I was bouncing ideas off of Nate for possible future commissions and one idea I had was the Legion fighting Galactus. I was thinking of a small squad of Legionnaires, maybe eight members of the team facing the Devourer of Worlds in battle. I told Nate to go with the post-Zero Hour version of the Legion, since that was his favorite version of the team. Then Nate went and decided to use the WHOLE TEAM. Then he added some of the Heralds. Then we decided to use four pieces of 11x17 Bristol board so it wouldnít get cramped. Then he sent me the layout and I just stared it for a very long time and imagined how awesome it would look when it was finished. My imagination didnít even come close. Nateís layout is superb here, and the amount of thought he put into where the characters would be and what they would be doing is incredible.

So where do I start? We have Inferno and Live Wire attacking Galactusís eyes while a bunch of other Legionnaires are flying up to attack his body. Sensor is projecting an image of Shalla Ball to distract the Silver Surfer while Superboy attacks him from behind and Monstress crawls onto his board. Leviathan is small compared to the Big G and has been captured, but Magno and Kid Quantum are about to free him. Nova has captured Brainiac 5, but she canít really hurt him while he has his force field. Nevertheless, a bunch of Legionnaires are after Nova, because Brainy is probably the only one who can think of a way out of this mess. And when Andromeda brings her ďdeath from aboveĒ attack down on Nova it will be all-out war. Also notice the nice little touches of Chameleon catching a fainting Dreamer and XS running up Galactusís leg. Moving on around we see that Terrax is going at it with Ultra Boy but Cosmic Boy is using his magnetic powers to steal Terraxís axe while Spark fries his brain. Itís called teamwork, baby! And Nate knows how to draw it!

Who would win this war? The Legion, for sure! But man, would it be an epic, crazy, fight. With such a wide range of powers and abilities, the Heralds would go down almost too quickly. With multiple characters that have Superman-level strength and all of the magic and energy projection and manipulation in the team, even opponents like the Silver Surfer donít stand much of a chance. But then what about Galactus himself? Well, I think that would come down to Brainiac 5. Brainy is smarter than Reed Richards (yeah, I said it) and would figure out a way to beat the Wolrd-Eater. And then heíd remind everyone later that he was the source of their victory, because Brainy ainít modest! And if for some reason everything didnít go the Legionís way, thereís always Karate Kid!

If you like this piece, then by all means go buy some of Nate's comics and/or commission him yourself.

Da~mn! See, now -that's- what commissions are for.

You certainly get extra points for going 34x22 but I'm going to have to be petty :) and deduct 1 for the use of the snake Princess Projectra. Overall score on a scale of 1 to 10? 19.
