LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES/BUGS BUNNY SPECIAL #1

Written by SAM HUMPHRIES
Art and cover by TOM GRUMMETT and SCOTT HANNA
The Legion of Super Heroes always thought they had taken their inspiration from the 21st Century’s Superboy. But when they try to bring that hero into their future time, the team discovers to their surprise the caped champion isn’t who—or even what—they expected!

At this rate, the actual Legion ongoing isn't going to hit the shelves until the 31st Century.

More to the point, I'd love it if the Dominators would be outsmarted by Marvin the Martian.

It'd also be funny to see the Dominators complain about being sassed by that "RRRRRASCALLY RRRRRRABBIT."

In the backup, er... tale, Sylvester and Catspaw have a tough time because neither can understand the other's speech patterns.

And perhaps the question I asked in these forums will finally get answered: Does Catspaw use a toilet or a litter box?

This series looks sorta funny, but a lot of what we've seen of the Legion in the past year has been playing them for a joke - the Sugar & Spike appearance, the knock-offs in Harley Quinn and JL3001. More recent Rebirth panels with Saturn Girl and Brainiac 5 suggested a more serious take, but now we're back to Legion cliché of applicant rejection/silly powers.

laugh Marvin is actually a part of this event... He and J'onn are getting a one-shot. The whole event looks "looney toons" fun, with a lot of great talent! The Elmer Fudd/Batman issue might be the sleeper hit... grin

There's an interview with the writer (Sam Humphries) here.

Among other things, he says "It is the “Convergence” Legion, which is patterned after my favorite era of the Legion, which is the ’70s, Bronze Age, Mike Grell, Dave Cockrum run of the Legion", and also "It truly is a Legion of Super-Heroes story guest starring Bugs Bunny, and not the other way around." It's not in continuity.

I prefer the variant cover. It's the Bugs Bunny I know and love, not the "grim an gritty version" from the regular cover.

If only "Grim & Gritty" was something you could, er, bug-spray for.

So seeing the preview for the Looney Tunes crossover and I think the whole thing's just gonna make fun of the Legion.

I'm not sure what you'd expect from such a venture? I doubt the Batman/Fudd crossover will be a hard-hitting serious affair either. wink

Yeah, guys, I apologize. I talked with Rhino about this and honestly I think the stress from the last couple of days got me thinking with my head up my ass.

My honest, first second, reaction when I saw it previewed wasn't all that different Sarky. "Bah!* They're making the Legion a laughing stock to demoralise it's strong fan base!" It was only then I saw the other titles involved too. I swear it was just a second! But I could have posted that first reaction.

So, although there's a little cynic in me that says that wouldn't it be nice to have a proper Legion story again, at least the Legion isn't being ignored. I'll be taking a look at Bats '66, for example. It's camp, it's silly but what a creative team. So it's should be cool beans.

You know, probably helps to link to the preview doc* tongue

http://nerdist.com/super-wabbit-ret...roesbug-bunny-special-exclusive-preview/

*"Doc" is a nickname** frequently used by Bugs Bunny with those he encounters
**No, this doesn't mean you're a doctor***, at all
***Not even "Doctor" like the various superhero "doctors" who have never got near a PhD****
****Stop asking about it already!

It was silly fun, but probably not for everyone. The villain uses the Legion's major weakness against them.... Angst! Also, it has the Bugs Bunny/Validus fight you demanded!

EDIT: Ultra-Boy and Timber Wolf get the major share of the lambasting, followed by a pretty vacant Lightning Lass, so if those three are your favs, you'll need an extra helping of sense of humour.

I'm happy to see Jo and Brin get some lambasting. For a change wink

And seeing the Legion all angst-y is good.

Interesting though, from the preview I would have expected Brainiac 5 to get poked fun of a lot.

*Gasp*! Brainiac Five's tendency to create lovebots nearly proves the Legion's undoing!

I enjoyed it quite a bit, especially as a parody of some of the overblown angsty-ness of many of the 70s Legion stories. Overall, I didn't quite dig it as much as Batman 66, though.
