    I have wanted the Legion back for so long but this is feeling a lot like a reboot and they have failed more often than not. I am not a fan of Bendis.I would prefer the John's approach, taking the preboot legion and tell their further adventures. I don't want to see RJ Brande saved again or worse yet, another version of the Great Darkness saga, none of which hold a candle to the original.

    Ultimately, I have my doubts about yet another reboot. We've had so many versions already.

    Classic/Retroboot
    5YL & SW6
    Post Zero Hour (Archie Legion)
    Threeboot

    Depending on how you count them, this is either the 5th version of the Legion or the 7th version of the Legion. While I'd prefer the Retroboot LSH, letting Bendis reboot it is probably for the best. The man shows little to know respect for past characterization, so a clean slate is to his advantage.

    This was beautiful to look at, but felt like it just ended midway through the story. I guess this one was written for the trade.

    Kind of how I feel. I just have trouble believing that the character who has been in the background since Rebirth #1 has been hinted at having a big role and a huge link with Superman's story and the DCU as a whole was meant to always be a gigantic red herring. No frigging way.

    As for Jonathan, I would have loved him in the Legion, if he hadn't been aged up and had us and Supes miss the fun of seeing him grow up. But NOPE. Had to ruin Super sons, had to ruin the family dynamic that was the most interesting thing to happen in superman in decades, had to just toss it all for whatever reason. I'll still check out millenium, but not particularly hopeful.

    I like Andrea Sorrentino's artwork on the Kamandi section of Legion: Millennium. I would like to her work on the regular title at some point.

    Well, I liked this issue of Legion : Millenium. Turns out Rose and Thorns were really likeable characters, I honestly wasn't sure they would be. I'm not sure I recognized all the futures in the book however : I guess President Supergirl is the closest to the present (something of an in between now and Batman Beyond?), and then there was the post-Great Disaster of Kamandi (around the 23d Century? 24th? Even before?), then the 25th Century (I think?). Or am I arranging the eras wrongly ?

    I wouldn't presume to know how Sorrentino self-identifies, but Andrea's a guy, FYI.

    Just about all of his monthly work has been with Jeff Lemire. They've done runs on Green Arrow and Old Man Logan, as well as a creator owned series at Image called Gideon Falls. If you like his work with Bendis they did the Secret Wars Old Man Logan series as well as a few issues here and there during Bendis' X-Men run.

    I wasn't thrilled with it. It's unknown as to whether or not the chapters are in time order or if there are time jumps going on. Is this a future history of DC, or just Bendis' take on ideas. The series so far has been just an examination of the mystery character's travails through the future without a lot of detail.

    As far as the Legion is concerned, nothing about them in the 1st issue. Seem a waste of five bucks to me.

    Seems like these are the best answers - and I think that reading the 80s runs wouldn't really be too difficult for me! It's most things from before the 80s that I struggle with. Thanks, I'll definitely have to look into these!

    I agree with you. The younger version was very fresh. I'm not a big fan of young super-heroes, but it is what is is -- fiction. I guess, though, that it would be odd for a group of young adults to induct a member who is not even in puberty yet.

    Yes, Andrea is a male name in Italy.

    Age him up a bit if need be, but 17? Without any real human interaction for all that time outside of being tortured by Ultraman? Just kills the character.
