Who's Who: Quislet

by Russell & Siskoid

Real Name: YXO
Super-Power(s): Ability to "possess" solid, inaminate objects/materials and animate them for short periods of time
Planet of Origin: Teall
Legion Seniority: Quislet joined as one of the five "rookies" after the founders retired from active duty. Polar Boy was listed first as the "senior" rookie, then Sensor Girl was originally listed next. When her status changed, Quislet moved up from Legionnaire #37 to became Legionnaire #36.

Legion Log 
Quislet made his debut appearance when five new recruits joined the Legion. He had arrived in our dimension from his homeworld looking to do "good". Originally volunteering for the Science Police, they suggested he try out for the Legion instead. In his first appearance, he helped Brainiac 5 defeat Dark Circle leader Ontiir, which impressed enough members for him to win acceptance. 

Quislet lives in his Trans-D Vessel, a space-ship that was created by the synergized power of Teall's inhabitants. Quislet's original mission was to go out into the Multiverse and find similar energy beings to bring back and convert into members of Teall's hive mind. However, given the chance to travel and escape the group mentality, Quislet left Teall and had no intention of going back. Looking for adventure, he heard of the Legion and joined their ranks.

Quislet's vessel is the only inanimate object that does not begin to disintegrate while he is inside it. Element Lad once attempted to run an evaluation of the spaceship, but did not even recognize several of its components.

Quislet is curious, gossipy, and fun-loving, but is the most self-centered member the Legion has ever had. Therefore, although he gets along well enough with all of his fellow members, he is not on particularly friendly terms with any of them. He did spend more time with Tellus, Polar Boy, Magnetic Kid, and Sensor Girl because they all joined at the same time. He also spent time with Wildfire, another being of energy, and both Dream Girl and Timber Wolf, Legionnaires who enjoy fun or who don't overthink situations.

He declined all attempts to "train" himself to become better, believing he is near perfect the way he is.

Quislet was a Legionnaire for nearly two years, in which time he helped the Legion battle Starfinger, the Manhunters, and Universo.

On a mission to capture the Emerald Empress, Quislet was blasted by her Emerld Eye. He survived the attack, but she did succeed in destroying his craft. Quislet therefore had no choice but to return to Teall. His last wish to his fellow Legionnaires was, "Never stop having fun!"

No version of Quislet appeared after the Reboot or Threeboot.

After Infinite Crisis, Quislet's original history was more or less re-established, but he was apparently never banished back to his home dimension (or else found a way to return). After the death of the Legion's benefactor, R. J. Brande, Quislet joined a new assembly of the Espionage Squad and traveled back to the 21st century to help shepherd the hero Mon-El to his destiny. In Metropolis, he took shelter in one of Lexcorp’s inventions, a “Hover Cam” (designate MTSP02) from which he served as the eyes and ears for Chameleon Boy, also undercover with the Science Police, until they were both forced to reveal themselves. They have since returned to the 31st century. He is currently missing in action, having disappeared in the middle of a battle.
