What are you supposed to do with those cups once you have them?


Store them in a box for 40 years and watch as they done get the thousands of dollars you thought you'd get for them when you put them on e-bay.

Well since I never had them in the first place, I can't.

It really sucked seeing 7-11 commercials on the TV growing up, and knowing there weren't any where I lived. I never had a Slurpee until 2005. :cry:

so because YOU couldn't get them, it means that DC didn't promote the characters?

It's about the only time DC did anything like that in the 70's. (Except for the paperback). And it wasn't like DC made a concerted effort to promote the team on its own. You six characters in a series of 60 cups. Easy to get lost in the shuffle there.

The cups barely count as a blip on the radar. Absolute minimum effort there.

And not it seems that Francis Portela will be back doing boring s****y art on Legion again.

DC continues to do the same freaking stuff that's driven Legion into the ground. Like keeping Levitz on the book.
