Oh.. HUMANS vs Aliens is different from Aliens vs HUMANS (just like humanity vs Nazi's is different from Nazi's vs humanity (or dogs vs cats is diff from cats vs dogs (or.....))))
In other words...
In a situation where humanity has been shown to be for the most part to be leading the way in spreading peace and defending freedom for all races, yes. There is a difference.
Earth has been always been shown in LSH (pre 5YG) to be the home of the UP, and the President of Earth shown to play a central role in the UP's mission. [/quote]
And Humans have indeed been presented as the bad guys. Anyone with a passing knowledge of Blok or Gates can attest to that (not to mention all the chaos and horror that humans like Roxxas, Universo, Dark Circle, Tharok, etc have done to their fellow humans AND aliens).[/quote]
Universo isn't human. I believe Levitz showed that back in #295, where he was one of the three alien GL's that faced the Legion. (Or did you forget to notice Vidar's pointed ears?)
The Dark Circle was composed of alien and humanoids (never mentioned if they were human or not).
As for Roxxas and Tharrok, I don't think they've been established as being human (i.e. being from Earth decent),either. F
k, Roxxas was a Daxamite in the Archie Legion, even!
Yes, the Legion has faced a lot of human and humanoid enemies. They weren't seen as representing Earth or mankind as being on some kind of anti-alien crusade, though.
(And before you say it, Roxxas' agents killed all the Tromians because they refused to be their slaves. Heck, in the original story Roxxas was pi$$ed that his men killed them all ('cept for Jan, of course).) (S/LSH #211 is a little different, but if doesn't give Roxxas' species, either.)
And you miss the point. Earth and Humanity as a whole has never been seen in the Legion as being antagonistic to aliens the way it was is Action #858-#863. And there hasn't been much of an effort to show that that was just an aberration caused by mental control or massive brainwashing or something more illogical.
