So I'm reading every part of JL vs. SS and something interesting came up. Spoilers for the most recent issue of Suicide Squad, btw.

So the group of bad guys we see in JL vs. SS? As in Lobo, Emerald Empress, Rustam, Doctor Polaris? They were Amanda Waller's ORIGINAL attempt at a Suicide Squad, and it's very obviously implied that their screw-up (they kinda caused a small country to be nuked) is what led to Waller's head explosives in the New 52, rather than offer rewards (she offered Emerald Empress intel on Saturn Girl). That means THIS Emerald Empress, assuming the original New 52 Suicide Squad run happened (which it seems to have, given how familiar Harley is with everything, ''and'' that it was referenced in New Suicide Squad which is referenced a few times in Rebirth's stuff), that would mean this Emerald Empress cannot be the Retroboot one. Because she and Saturn Girl were in modern times during all that stuff.

So unless they sorta diverge from a certain point in the Retroboot, like the Retroboot itself did with the Pre-Zero Hour Legion, this KINDA rules them out as the Legion returning? Though it may just be a goof, though Rebirth seems to have a proper plan when it comes to setting up the bigger stories (JSa, LEgion, Watchmen, etc.).


There's a fine line between not listening and not caring. I like to think that I walk that line every day of my life.

It was only a matter of time before someone posted this, so, here I guess.

In this week's Justice League, the League are scattered through time and Cyborg ends up in the 31st century, where he meets a very young looking Brainiac 5.

Well... crap. I'm guessing plans changed, and Hope Larson's place in them? This leads me to think she's out from potentially writing the Legion.

So I guess... c'mon, Tom King!

Was there any news at Comicon about the Legion? I haven't seen any and am so disappointed.

The only thing I saw was the Phantom Girl announcement but there might have been something announced to those who were present

I'm certain that if there was anything else, it would have made news here. I certainly didn't see anything else in all of the coverage.

I can only assume that nothing is imminent, sadly. It's a shame for many reasons but even more so because the overall quality of Rebirth has been very good. One would think that Legion would benefit from being part of such a quality-filled launch.


Still "Lardy" to my friends!

I feel like the Legion would be perfect for that new format of comic book storytelling that DC is adopting, the European-style larger/longer format comics that come out quarterly or something I think.

I never feel like 22 pages (or whatever it is these days) is enough to tell a good Legion story with it's large cast of characters and worlds and concepts, especially in this era of heavy decompression.

I didn't know that DC was adopting this style ... that would be awesome!

^ I believe it's just for certain books at this stage Andy. Batman being the main one. I think Scott Snyder's book was cancelled so he could concentrate on this one. So I've read.
