Superhero Clubhouse

Welcome to the Superhero Clubhouse, a Legion of Superheroes blog! The LoSH is a 31st century superhero group comprised of idealistic teenagers from across the galaxy! I'm Qulore Dox, the daughter of Brainiac 5, and I've decided to come back to the 21st century to explore the heroic deeds of the Legion and other superheroes in order to one day join the Legion myself. Feel free to look around and leave a comment or two!

Who's Who: Dawnstar

please note: Who's Who: Brainiac 5 has also been updated to include the changes made in the Who's Who layout.

Dawnstar: "While I lead the diversion, Lightning Lad, perhaps you can think of something useful to do with that puddle they're all standing in!"
Lightning Lad: (Dawnstar's still as acerbic as ever. Ah well, she may not be the easiest person to get along with - but she's one fantastic Legionnaire!)

Given Name: Dawnstar
Home Planet: Starhaven
Eyes: Blue
Hair: Black, long and straight, always worn down
Appearance: tall, athletic, American Indian heritage
First Appearance: Superboy and the Legion of Superheroes #226

Dawnstar was first seen at age 16 as a recent Legion Academy Graduate. Because of the unique abilities she possessed she was given Legion membership.

Abilities: tracking, flight, can survive in space

A *VERY* Brief History

Dawnstar is the child of Mistrider and Moonwalker and was born on the planet Starhaven. She also has two younger brothers named Greybird and Greatfire. Before joining the Legion Academy her parents started a business built around their daughter's amazing tracking abilities. Once she joined the Legion, Dawnstar sent her Legion stipend to her home world. She was also seen occasionally working for her parents guiding spaceships when away from the Legion. Dawnstar was especially useful to the Legion for tracking down missing Legionnaires as well as the occasion villain. She had a love affair with Wildfire, however, even when he possessed a body they discovered there couldn't be a physical side to their relationship. Sadly, even though they both loved each other, Wildfire couldn't bear the thought of hurting Dawnstar and ended the relationship. Dawnstar also played a part in Crisis on Infinite Earths. Dawnstar hasn't appeared since Zero Hour.

Personal Notes

I didn't have the honor of meeting Dawnstar myself as she was a rather distant Legionnaire, eventually switching to reserve status. Dad seemed to respect her although he too said he had never gotten to know her all that well. Shadow Lass always spoke very highly of her and I regret not having met her.

I'm curious as to why she hasn't been reintroduced. For a minor character she has a substantial fan following. Many people were upset by Waid's issue 15 - the cover feturing Dawnstar had made many fans hopeful that she was going to be reintroduced.

They should bring her back. She was a very cool character and also extremely cool looking.

Thanks for a concise summary about {ahem} "my sister"! {g} I hope that Waid, Kitson, et al., will have the good sense to return her, and other exotic or semi-humanoids, to the Legion lineup. I miss Blok, Tellus, and Quislet as well. ... I'd only demur about Dawny being a "minor character," as she was in the Legion for 17 years, from '77 to '94. (Even if some of that was under severe travail. %$!@#^* Giffen *sigh*)

I wasn't referring to her as being minor in the Legion - I meant in the general DC continuity... to DC Matrix/Linda Supergirl is a minor character (and I'm still upset she's not around). I can understand why she wasn't one of the first Legionnaires brought into the reboot - I just want her to come back :)
