DC Shocker: Legion of Superheroes Cancelled

The book will not make it to September.



Source: Bleeding Cool

DC has listened to all the longtime Legion fans on the board and cancelled Legion of Superheroes.  The book, which was the subject of no less than a dozen multipage rants on our forum, has been written by Paul Levitz since it debutted in the New 52.   Legion fans should be happy about the news, as it means that the team has finally lost all relevance in today's industry.  Here's Mark Waid on the subject:

 

Asked for comment, DC head honcho Dan Didio responded, "we were still publishing that?  I thought we cancelled that book back in 2007."  Now we know for certain: DC doesn't care about the Legion.

Stay tuned, there's more cancellations coming. 

UPDATE: We reached out to @ThisIsBobHarras on Twitter, and he responded with some comments on the cancelation:

That would have been funny back in March 2009 when they cancelled Waid's 3-Boot Legion book.

What's he going to do? Why, celebrate of course.

He finally gets his wish. The book is cancelled. He now no longer has to live in a world with a Legion book that doesn't fit his uniquely exact and precise (and insane) expectations.

Yet another concept that DC needed to STOP TAMPERING WITH.

They need to give the Legion to some upstart Image/Indie hot-shot who has no idea of the franchise's history apart from the basic concept and no respect for it and let him or her go fucking crazy with self-contained future epics where anything can happen.

Make it edgy, make it different.
