    This was before she joined the team. She joined the team pretty late in this era.

    So, things are changed from the classic continuity. I don't see a family relationship line being drawn between RJ Brande and Chameleon Boy, but there is one between Brande and Triad.
    I've always kind of wanted to check out the Archie Legion since that seems to me the most easy jumping on point post classic Legion (aside from the DnA, "Legion Lost," stuff).

    Frontier you definitely should. It did fall off towards the end of Tom Peyer's run imo and Abnett picked it back up successfully but you should try it out. Easy to jump in and has so much personality.

    The first couple of years up until they split the team in two is some great stuff. It was two books a month with Waid/Peyer/McCraw writing and keep the books flowing like one biweekly book. This was before Waid started to get so preachy and more worried about making a point than just telling good stories. The art is a little cartoony, but the stories make up for it. The two big collections cover a lot of issues and are worth a look if your curious.

    Still waiting on Book Three!

    I'd like to think that with the upcoming push from Bendis, DC would continue these trades, but I'm not going to hold my breath...

    Especially with the murmuring's they'll be cutting back on their trade paperbacks .

    (Although is most of it on DC Universe? I would think so).

    Looks like Legionnaires #0-81 and Annual #2 are up on there.
    Any missing Annuals are expected, as DC tends to forget about them when digitizing for Comixology.
    We're still waiting for many Annuals for the Baxter Legion (maybe one day I'll get to read 'Who Shot Laurel Kent?' again...)

    A good rule of thumb is if it's on Comixology, older than a year and not part of an imprint, it's on DC Universe.

    I got and Email today from Amazon saying that my order of The 5 Years LatterLegion trade had a ship date of July 22nd or so. Don't know if its true or not but it does give me a little glimmer of hope that maybe that trade might actually come out after all.

    Iíve to admit Iím pretty ignorant of the Legion. A friend had some old 70ís comics where Superboy was actually a member. Not just an inspiration but an actual member! Kind of stupid to me but the story I glanced through was pretty bad. Iíll give this book a shot because itís Bendis. Iím confident heíll have a nice spin on the characters. Iím not crazy about stories in the future but he may be able to do some interesting stories.

    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. I found it fun, and it was a great way to get into the Legion -- just follow Superboy through the story. That's why I said that Jon Kent will be good as a similar gateway character. The Legion really needs it.

    I'm curious about the comic you saw. I can't believe you said it was "pretty bad" because the Legion is known for its history of great stories. Maybe 1970s comics just don't age well for you?

    Do you remember anything about it like the cover or the contents?

    Soo are the 2010 and 2005 Legion runs worth reading? What is the definitive run o should read if I wanna get into them? I ask about 05 and '10 series cuz I kinda want something with more modern art tbh.

    Yeah I admit I don’t always do well with pre 2000 comics. Just a taste thing. The issue I remember had the old version of Brainiac on the cover. The reason it stood out was he had this Elvis jumpsuit thing going. I thought “We’re in the future and Brainiac decides to wear 70’s bell bottoms?” It was just weird to look through. Old comics don’t agree with me I guess.

    Well, there were definitely periods in the 70s where the Legion book was not that great --- the art, in particular. Keith Giffen really gave the book the shot in the arm it needed. Didio at DC once stupidly commented that Legion has always been a writer's book. He had no clue. Yes, the writing is important, but look at Levitz's stories before Keith joined him. They were okay. Look at Cary Bates in the 70s -- his stuff wasn't bad, but Dave Cockrum's art was the reason to buy Legion. Even Jim Shooter had Curt Swan (and some great Neal Adams covers). Legion interiors in the late 70s were a mixed bag. I was mostly not reading DC at this time -- came back in the early 80s with Perez Titans, Legion, Swamp Thing, etc.

    FWIW, that was probably Pulsar Stargrave, not Brainiac. I'm sure the name only serves to prove your point though....
