    There's nothing to indicate that Bendis would go in that direction. Bendis is 51, which likely means the Legion he grew up with was the late 70s / early 80s version. So, Paul Levitz was the writer...

    I don't think it's cynical. Given the number of reboots the Legion has had, it's a smart thing to do.

    But I think it serves multiple purposes. Yes, this new Legion can now be easily discarded if...

    I know that Dark Phoenix was a bomb and that probably nothing could have saved it. Even if they released it when they originally planned to, it might only have been less of a bomb, but a bomb...

    For me, it's just the opposite. I'm also more of a DC Comics fan than Marvel, so because I have less interest in their characters and universe, Marvel has to go the extra mile to wow me.

    That's...

    How old are your kids, though? As a parent, I could see you buying something labeled "DC Kids" for your kids if they're young -- say, under 10, but would kids buy it for themselves especially if...

    Well, as I said earlier, I've already posted the 5 Years Later history pages on the first page of the Legion Appreciation thread in this forum, so that would be a quick way for anyone to check out...

    I don't know if Endgame can get another $43 million worldwide from its remaining standard edition + extended edition release.

    It closed in China over 3 weeks ago, and I don't think that an extra...

    Too bad you don't like it. I loved it when I read it, but I was a kid at the time.
  9. Good Lord, if you find the Legion daunting just...

    Good Lord, if you find the Legion daunting just by its reputation, then the 5YL Legion is pretty much the WORST place to start because even those of us who had followed the Legion since our...

    Superboy was an active Legion member more often than not from the Legion's inception in 1958 until Superboy was killed in 1987. Superboy used to fly into the future to take part in their adventures....

    Yeah, I agree that the other studios cannot and should not avoid Disney.

    I think the trick is not to release movies that are in the same genre as a nearby Disney release.

    For example, it was...

    Part of the impact of serialized storylines is the wait between installments. With that gone, the story might still be good, but the whole experience in between chapters -- thinking about it (maybe...

    I'm of the opinion that comics storylines should NOT be adapted to film. A story that took a year or so to tell can't be condensed into a 2-hour movie and have the same impact. It'll just feel like...

    Well, we now have Actuals for June 14-16:

    Men in Black did a little better than estimated for a $30,035,838 domestic -- about $1.5 million better...

    I had not heard that rumor at all, but I really like it!

    That way, Bendis doesn't even have to bother with any of the old history and can create a brand new jumping on point for everyone that...

    Here are the box office estimates for June 14-16 from Box Office Mojo. It's a shitty Summer, all right. The public has spoken.

    Since the chart below only contains estimates, not every movie in...

    I'd vote Halloween if it were included.

    The Terminators after T2 were Average, but still watchable. Same with Alien after A2.



    With Halloween, I liked I, IV, H20, and Zombie's I. The...

    Now, let's compare Bronze Age Legion to the Bendis-Sook Legion:

    Well, today's picture sure wins on coloring quality, but I don't think any of the new designs is superior.

    What's the verdict...

    Interestingly enough, Cockrum DID redesign Karate Kid several issues before the above picture (in Superboy 193), but for some reason, didn't include it. It became Karate Kid's permanent costume a...

    You don't know the old designs? That sounds like a cue to post the old designs! Here they are from Superboy 202 and 205. These are the Bronze Age Legion designs by Dave Cockrum. Mike Grell did...

    The flowchart is somewhat informative, but it's based on the Archie-Legion, judging from the artwork and members.

    So, things are changed from the classic continuity. I don't see a family...

    Oh, okay. Never heard of her. Haven't really been paying attention to the Legion in such great detail since a little after the Zero Hour reboot.

    Quite frankly, the more Bendis can remind me of...
