    Just wanted to say how impressed I am with Ryan Sook's art on Legion as a whole, but more specifically his subtle fine tuning of Jon's look.

    It's outstanding now, in my opinion. He's pulled back on the bulkiness, tightened up sleeves, and simplified the boots.

    I like that while Damian there is swearing at the sight of the future, in the background, you can see Dawnstar, saying the exact same thing because of Damian's presence.

    Well, if it is him, the artist seems to have redesigned his costume. And he never normally wears a cape, except for when he wore the classic Superman costume briefly when he joined the Legion of Super-Heroes.

    Looks like we're getting a new Super Sons story with 10 year old Jon. Presumably in the Robin 80th anniversary special.

    Hooray. Even if it's for one night only, it will be a welcome respite from the crap Bendis has been peddling.

    Ooooooh seeing the real Jon again feels great. A shame he's not actually back but this is still nice.

    Jon's not implying that Clark has more than one kid in that preview. He's speaking about grown ups in general.

    That's why he "you're the ones who have no future". "Ones" as in plural, meaning not just Clark.

    This concept of youth/younger generation battling adulthood/older generation, and accusing adults of intentionally trying to sabotage and hold back young is an idea he's used often.

    Most famously that's a large part of what his New X-Men run is centered around, and specifically that's what the cult favorite character he created for the run, Quentin Quire, is all about. "Riot at Xavier's" (issues 135-138 of New X-Men) is what you're looking for.

    Basically Morrison has cast Jon as almost a follower of the zealot-like Quentin Quire from that story. Conceptually the intent seems to be to both parody himself (thus, redoing the New X-Men martial), and parody the characters. So the jab Morrison is throwing here is at Superman as the "man of tomorrow". And it makes sense why he'd pick his future-forward X-Men run to parody with it.

    I didn't imply that clark has more than one kids. Well, i read it as jon being a legacy saying "f-- you" to his father and silverage generation. Its essentially a jab at people that think the others that came after don't matter or should stay stuck being under the JL in importance and fundamentally having no future or worse, get erased . Lets be honest superman has been getting his ass kicked as representative of the gen for a while now. Jon is just the latest. Donna did it better though i must admit.

    My mistake then. I just found it confusing that you'd say "looks like Morrison read this" in reference to a web comic that's all about forgotten "children" and how Clark "didn't save them" rather than referencing something closer to your point.
