Electric blue Superman disagrees.
And while it ended up working out fine, JLI was a pretty big deal, too. Since it took away almost all of the usual suspects for a Justice League roster.
Perhaps not reboots... but 'fuck with's to be sure.
Also, like you said, Legion has been published almost continuously for 40 years.
Other than you not liking what they do with it... what's your effing point?
If DC was trying to kill it off by ruining it... they could just do it.
"Comic book steadily loses readership over last 20 years despite efforts to re-invigorate the franchise" is hardly a headline unique to Legion....
Superman Blue was a storyline. A storyline that lasted a little too long, but a storyline no less.
If this was just me complaining about a book selling 50K-70K a month, that would be one thing. I might disagree with the direction, but it obviously was popular. But Legion is sold 16,460 or so copies for the latest figures. So something's obviously going wrong. Otherwise, they wouldn't be screwing with it the way it is.
