More like a screwjob.

Handing Legion back to the guy that f**ked it up in the first place with FYG is evidence enough that TW needs to make heads roll at DC.


Meanwhile, at a Time Warner executive meeting...

Time J. Warner (President of Time Warner): Harumph! This meeting is called to order! Read the agenda!

Executive: First up, profits are up in our cable division.

Time J. Warner: Skip that.

Executive: Movies are doing well...

Time J. Warner: Who cares about movies? Get to the important stuff!

Dan Didio: Of course. Comics!

Time J. Warner: How is The Legion?

Dan Didio: It's canceled.

(Everyone in the room gasps. The Chief Financial Officer faints.)

Time J. Warner: WHAT?! Canceled?! The Legion?!

Dan Didio: The sales were down! I had no choice!

Time J. Warner: I told you the neo-classic Legion was ruining the franchise!

Dan Didio: B-b-but...

Time J. Warner (pounding on the conference table): The Legion doesn't work in a dystopian future!

Dan Didio: It's the media! They're bullies!

Time J. Warner: It's too late! I could take the declining sales! I could deal with the creator walkouts! The editorial bungling! Bad PR! The bombing of Green Lantern as a movie franchise! Hiring a known homophobe to write a prominent Superman book...

(Two hours later)

Time J. Warner: ...Trying to kill off John Stewart! Hiring Rob Liefeld to write and draw seventeen books! Watchmen toasters! HasDCDoneAnythingStupid Today.com!...

(Two hours later)

Time J. Warner: ..."Toxic" characters! The obsession with the number 52! Firing your most prominent female writer via email! Letting Rob Liefeld take the moral high ground after quitting! Hiring Bob Harras! And blacklisting a small-time comic book site in a public and humorous way thereby giving them more attention than they ever would have had if you just ignored their emails!

(Dan Didio gulps.)

Time J. Warner: But canceling Legion of Super Heroes? Now you've gone too far.

Dan Didio: You mean?

Time J. Warner: I should have done what Juan Cena has been suggesting all this time. You're all fired.

I think the front page needs an interview with Time J Warner.

You forgot to mention the fridges.
"Why are you pointing your screwdrivers like that? They're scientific instruments, not water pistols."
"Oh, the pointing again! They're screwdrivers! What are you going to do? Assemble a cabinet at them?"
"Are you capable of speaking without flapping your hands about?"
""Timey" what? "Timey wimey"?"
