Default Anyone translate Starman's Interlac statement? SPOILERS

I haven't had a chance to translate the two words Starman tells KK. Anyone done so yet? A partial character substitution list is on one of the screens in the Batcave when Batman and BL are examining "Trident."
Just curious.

Various posts discussing the issue have already translated it. I believe he said "Lightning Lad"

Yeah I originally thought it might be Karate Kid b/c the first two symbols matched, but there were too many symbols in the first word. So then I went back to the Teen Titans/Legion crossover to see who was originally lost in time with them. Then it hit me like a sock full of quarters "Lightning Lad."

Then I laughed my *** off when I went back and reread the panels where Starman does that.

Karate Kid is describing how when someone said "starboy" he suddenly remembered who he was. So Starman stops his ranting. Goes "Lightning Lad." Karate Kid passes out and Starman continues ranting.

It's genius and I bet Meltzer and Johns are having a blast writing comedy that on really dedicated fans get. It's sort of like when parents go see movies like "Shreck" or "Cars" with there kids. The kids love the animation and the slapstick humor, but they miss the subtle comments that make the movie really, really funny.

So i guess that lightning lad is one of the missing legion members, or that he is the one who sent them.

That would appear to be so, however, it could just be that members names are some sort of mental influence on KK. As Kid Devil pointed out -

Karate Kid is describing how when someone said "starboy" he suddenly remembered who he was. So Starman stops his ranting. Goes "Lightning Lad." Karate Kid passes out and Starman continues ranting.

Both times a member's name was mentioned, something happened to KK.


Of course, did anyone else notice that the interlac title to this chapter of the Lightning Saga was also Lightning Lad.

Obviously the original 70s JSA/JLA/Legion crossover "never happened" in this New Earth universe

Alas...

Nix the Batman crossover issues, the whole "Karate Kid" series and probably a bunch of other old time travel stories.
