    So if the purple girl is phantom girl, then who's standing next to ultra boy? X-S? Kid Quantum?

Our issue was that we wished he'd set his symbolic gesture aside for a moment and reiterate (because he has been pretty clear on it already) that this is a reboot.
    His version of the Guardians was basically a reboot, though, for all intents and purposes.

    I guess, but he never came out and said something like "there was never a Guardians team before now."

    The conversation was more to do with marketing.

    See your 12-15 issues and I decrease it to 5-6.

    If the designs are any indicator about the book... the only way it stays on the stands is if DC starts selling to libraries in the same form Marvel is with Squirrel Girl and Ms. Marvel.

    Wow. For the first time I'm interested in the Legion of Superheroes!

    It seems like Bendis is moving the Legion to the 32nd century to leave the 30th and 31st centuries untouched as symbolic memorial of those past stories from previous versions of the DCU.

    I think it's similar to how, as per Doomsday Clock, Superman debuts later and later in the time line, and his previous first appearances are attributed to earlier continuities.

    If this is true, it's going to cause more fracturing of the fanbase, which is exactly what the Legion does not need.

    Bendis should have used my great idea of saying that the 32nd Century Legion was inspired by the original Legion. Both simple and effective.

    That angle both allows the original continuity to remain in canon, and also allows Bendis to create a Legion that he can do whatever he wants with because the differences between classic-Legion and Bendis-Legion would not be due to retcons, they'd be because it's a completely different Legion so fans wouldn't start complaining that their childhoods had been raped.

    If this really is yet another retcon where everything from the past did not happen, then this had better be the best Legion comic in all of human history in order to get the old Legion fans to accept all that they're losing from the past.

    Sook art is stunning, and the colors pop so well while still allowing the tiny details to stay visible. Genuinely can't wait to read this.

    I hadn't noticed that the "Yellow Lantern" guy's eyes are totally covered - no eyeholes. Aside from Sensor Lass, does that sound like anyone?

    Me too. FOr starter, because they seems to be from a future with many planets of very different species. Not Human but with wierd powers everywhere.

    That's one example (and a random one at that) when most of the time the Legion and their future looked like this



    or this



    or this



    The majority of the time at least.

    As you'll notice, the vast majority of characters are not just conventionally human in appearance, but also predominantly white. There was a very real sense of homogenization for anyone on the outside looking in.

    And to be clear, this isn't bashing the old designs and look, or the fans of them. There's always the context of the time they were created to take into account of course. Sensibilities were limited. And no one's somehow a bad person or whatever for being used to the team looking one way because that's what they've grown up reading. But this is just pointing out what some perspective fans in 2019 are finding visually inviting about the new look of the team/concept.

    It also helps that the picture is both diverse and the people in it are casually smiling, touching, and having what seems to be a good time.
