How many Legion reboots do they need to do in order for people to understand nobody cares about the Legion anymore.

They're doing the franchise a favor. Relaunch in a couple of years with a little excitement.

In the meantime, let's get some more Beyond or 1,000,000 titles.

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.


Quote me so Mr. "I'll bash Juan Cena even though I'm not man enough to not have him on ignore" can read this.


Coming from the person who whined about the Threeboot so much, and was so happy that DC backstabbed Waid, this is rich.

What you need to do, is finally admit that "restoring" the old Legion timeline has been a failure. The Threeboot's sales were around 30K when backstabbed Waid, and not they're below 20K.

They BADLY restored it and went from there.

I still say, throwing away anything that lasted for years or decades is a bad move.

Eh. It won't last and they'll go back to the classic with hopefully a better idea. Plus no more PC crapfest.

The better idea would've been to de-age at least half the team. Legion all-growed up like Levitz has been writing (or what happened with FYG) didn't work.

Neither has putting the team in a dystopic future.

It should have been a no-brainer to have de-aged the team after flashpoint to where the old-guard members were in the late teens to early 20's again. It could've been done without messing with continuity too much.
