    I'd assume Joelle Jones and Bliquis Everly are probably doing at least one female Legionnaire...Alex Maleev might do Shadow Lass since I think her new look would fit well with his art.

    I almost want to say Meleev will do Dawnstar, and Nguyen with his swirly and wispy style will take on Shadow Lass.

    I just realized Jurgens was on this too. I had the thought that he may be doing Jon's section, but I really think it's more likely its Shaner or Sook. Jurgens might get Mon-El. Mon's design by Sook seems to evoke a very classic look that I feel would fit Jurgens. Lemire seems like a lock for Monster Boy, and I'll bet you pretty much anything that Darick Robertson is doing Timber Wolf. Bendis has said multiple times that his version of Timber Wolf is inspired directly from Robertson's Logan, so this would be the perfect time to see that realized completely.

    Still blows my mind that this is happening. Putting a specific artist to each and every character of the Legion will go a really long way with communicating the feel of the character to the reader. Like saying "if they had a solo all to themselves, this is what it would feel like." Takes a good bit of weight off Bendis' shoulders for a bit when it comes to screen time or general confusion as to who all of these people even are, but then adds on the new weight of "well, now I want you to get to so-n-so's story more", and I imagine that's far better trade off.

    Yeah, I think multiple artists for a spotlight issue is a good move, it's more just how it'll all come together in the actual issue that should be interesting to see .

    Plus, Bendis love his artist montages .

    I'm excited for METAL 2. The first one had such a soundtrack to it.

    Might check out those JL issues, too.

    Maybe a bit overdone in recent years, I like stuff featuring the Black Mercy, and I'm interested in a new talent on JL. I might try that out, first main line book I've considered the whole year.

    I initially groaned at seeing the Black Mercy again, but it’s last appearance was in Trinity Rebirth so it has been a couple years and it’s Loveness, so I’m going to give him a shot.

    Just be aware, Scott Snyder already said that book will go into crossover mode and tie into Death Metal so that current JL run is fill in.

    Ahh I see thanks for the heads up. That's fine though, just a small run will be good enough, when it comes to team books I find that I rarely stay on for long periods of time anyway. I tend to jump on and off as it is.

    If it wasn't for the fact Superman outing himself has been mentioned, I'd have thought maybe they were like the Walmart books. But those use classic status quos (Superman is married but doesn't have a son), not mainline continuity.
