    Default Any L.E.G.I.O.N. 89 - 93 fans?

    Vril Dox, Lyrissa Mallor, Strata, Stealth, Garryn & Marij'n Bek, Lobo, Phase, Garv, Telepath, Lady Quark, Captain Comet

    One of my favorite books at the time. Dox was an amazing character and very unpredictable. Nice dynamics between the characters.

    This was one of the best series DC was putting out at the time hands done. Vril Dox has always been one of the most interesting characters DC has with him trying to not turn out like his "father" Brainiac, but still falling into the dark side in dealing with people. Being a huge Legion of Superheroes fan all the ties L.E.G.I.O.N. had to the LSH just made me love it even more.

    Giffen in his prime really sold this title to me. It had a wonderful mix of humor and seriousness. And dark humor.

    love me some Kitson and Vril Dox, my favorite post 93 sighting was win Dox joined the Sinestro Corp for a second. He would be that officer in the Sin Corp always looking for a chance to take it over. I would really like to see the L.E.G.I.O.N. addressed more and have more crossover/conflicts with the GLC as a rival peace keeping force. I also always wondered if there was a connection between Stealth and Arisia since they share a very similar look.

    It was a great book all the way up through #50. Keith Giffen, Alan Grant, and Barry Kitson were superb.

    I do think they made a big mistake in killing off one of the main characters (I won't spoil it for those who haven't read it). I know they were clearing the way for a relative to become the better hero, but the writers did too good of a job with the original IMO.

    The one I really miss is Vril Dox jr. He was the Amanda Waller of Space. And green. A moral grey individual who could sacrifice his son or innocent lives if he could save the universe and punish the guilty. By any morally questioning method possible. Machiavelli would be proud.
