For those not reading the current arc: the JLA and JSA are working
together to retrieve 7 "lost" members of the Legion of Super-Heroes;
that's the pre-Zero-Hour version, maybe even pre-Crisis judging from
In this scene, Red Arrow, Power Girl and the Hawks are in Thanagar
looking for Dawnstar. Red Arrow says what's on every reader's mind:
"Oh, then she's practically a sore thumb. Girl with wings..." (looks up
to the Thanagar sky, full of flying people) "Never seen that before."
Then Hawkgirl says: "Relax, Sarcastic Lad." He mutters: "Sarcastic Lad?
They don't have humor in Thanagar either?"
So it was a joke with the Legion's naming pattern. I guess we'll only
know if it was an LNH reference or not, if Meltzer eventually mentions it
in an interview, or if he throws in a more clear reference later on :-)
So many of our dreams at first seem impossible,
then they seem improbable, and then, when we
summon the will, they soon become inevitable.
