Legendary Star-Lord #10 (HERE BE SPOILERS!)

OK, a lot happens here in pretty quick succession.

J'Son has Thane encase Spartax in amber so that he can sell it to the Brood.  In exchange, he gets control over every tenth planet that the Brood conquer.  Meanwhile, the Brood get to implant eggs in the immobilized Spartaxans, drastically expanding their population overnight.  (The Spartaxans will die in the birthing process, since the eggs are placed in their brains.)  Peter and the Hala team arrive to find the encased bodies, and he tearfully confesses to a fossilized Kitty that she was right about everything.  Kitty manages to phase through the amber, and a sarcastic and tearful reunion ensues.  ("The time to berate you is later.  Just kiss me, space boy.")  Magik and the runaway team members also arrive, but, before anyone can devise a solution to save the Spartaxans, the Slaughter Lords attack!

This event has been pretty uneven, but this issue is one of the better installments.  For the first time, someone seems to have some sort of plan (i.e., J'Son).  (It now explains why he needed Thane, given his ability to case people in amber.)  I'm definitely more engaged than I was after the disastrous "Nova" issue.

*** (three of five stars)
