I get the feeling Andromeda (aka Laurel Gand) from the SW6 batch and the Reboot Legion was meant to be sort of a hybrid of Laurel Kent and Supergirl, allowing them to essentially save "both" of the characters that the Crisis wound up killing. I imagine the Legion writers got an editorial mandate to make Laurel a Manhunter to reduce the Superman connection to the Legion, and they hated the idea.Batgirl III wrote: ↑Mon Apr 16, 2018 9:48 pmIn that case, you'll never get to her. She never joined the Legion!
In the original continuity, she was kept out because "Invulnerability" was her only power and it wasn't unique, she never graduated from Montauk Point. In the Post-Crisis version of the LSH, she was retconned to have been a Manhunter android! In both the Post-Zero Hour and Post-Flashpoint version of the DCU, she simply doesn't exist.
According to wikipedia, the bit with the Manhunter is no longer considered in continuity, so she's technically alive out there.
As for her not being a member of the Legion, I plan to also do mock ups of other characters important to the Legion mythos who might not have technically been members, and since Laurel was a special request, I'll fit her in. Beyond nixing the barely-there-bathing suit and the pancho, any special requests with her outfit? There where these Superboy/Supergirl outfits in the 90s that Alex Ross had designed for a shot of the Legion in Kingdom Come.
