    Who’s the gorgon headed Legionnaire? The Doctor Fate with Kali arms? The green gooey skeleton? The sandy looking female between Shadow Lass and Mon-El?

    Lord have mercy! I am so glad I dropped that book like a live grenade after the second issue or so. I too will scurry back to the Legion of my misspent youth.

    What bothers you about that depiction of the LSH?

    The full team splash page has long been a staple of the LEGION. Can't have a Legion and NOT show their numbers.

    Me too. I re-read Legion of Super Heroes #286 - #305 over the weekend. Levitz and Giffen at their peak.

    Thanks for sharing this. IMO the future's not looking too bright...but I'm holding on to the hope that something clicks for me and I start enjoying this title and version of the Legion.

    To many characters for Bendis to handle. Still liking the book so far. Not the Legion of old but at least they are back. How about Quislet and Xs for new/old characters to join. Not digging the six arm fate. There are already a ton of Lantern’s at DC. Monster Boy is kind of cliche but at least he is original. Does Blok speak?

    Yeah Blok spoke during the flashback/computo issue that showed the original three forming the Legion of Superheroes.

    I am uncertain if I like Bendis Legion - beyond Sook’s art that is. To me, Bendis’ dialogue can be interchanged with any character -it’s like bland universal character exposition with a slightly Gilmore Girls speedy reparte and witticism. To me, most of the characters are not developed beyond the superficial and coming off as cold - all style and little substance.

    I am also not too keen on this upcoming plot point pairing Saturn Girl and Superboy - for some reason it just doesn’t feel organic to me. Definitely no interest whatsoever. I will keep getting the next couple issues to see if anything keeps me invested and interested but I am not holding my breath.

    Bendis is famous for interchangeable characters. His Avengers were the same person in multiple bodies.

    Come to think of it, I've seen that plot done before - in Power Rangers Time Force. Red Ranger Wes is from the year 2001. Pink Ranger Jen is from the year 3000 (so roughly the same time difference as Jon and Imra!). The problem is, how can they be together when they don't live in the same time period? At the end of the season, Jen had to go home. She returned in a team up the following season and they left it ambiguous whether they end up together or not (at least until an upcoming graphic novel). Wes couldn't go to the future full time as it would've changed history. Jen remaining in the 21st century would potentially have the same effect. Jon and Imra will have the same problem. Jon's absence or Imra's presence in the year 2020 could cause changes to the 31st century. Something I'm sure Impulse can point out to Jon (via Conner), considering he should remember the 90s version of the Legion that had his cousin XS on the team.

    But, but, we had a whole issue devoted to telling us about the new characters, Dr. Fate, Monster Boy and Gold Lantern, according to the cover!

    During which we learned. About Monster Boy, practically nothing. About Dr. Fate, *literally* nothing. About Gold Lantern, he has a *great* story, which... we're not telling you!

    It's like a master class in how not to write a comic.

    Oh wow, I didn't even notice the antennae, or that there were *four* of Triplicate Girl!

    Lots of fun little details. Six-armed Dr. Fate rocking at table tennis. Giant 'lava lamps' by the door. Phantom Girl grabbing a drink. Etc.

    Yeah, and Jon seems to be talking to Clark, Lois, Krypto and Kara using a holographic video link.
