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.

If anyone can save this flailing franchise he can.
