Well, that's incredibly specific. ... I haven't found your detailed take on any of this, just a lot of vague "meh" disdain for Levitz. It's hard to discuss such Jell-O.

If you have the affection for the concept that you claim you do, you'd know that the Legion has been through more publishing permutations, false starts, second chances, creative teams, and temporary homes than almost anything else at DC. Probably only being bested by the mess of the Hawkfolk. Ye gads, man, this is the seventh instance of an "LSH"-titled book.
They're not going to go beyond a mere cancellation, to utterly abandon the concept (as you seem to be suggesting), after all of this time. You're both being needlessly apocalyptic and ruling out success — with, as I say, none of us having seen one interior page of any of these four titles yet.
What's to like? Too much time spent on Earth Man and the Green Lantern Mon-El plots.No trying to smooth out what went on between LSH #63 and the debut of the neo-classic Legion. Heck, no trying to smooth out the continuity issues since
the debut of the neo-classic Legion.
And as for the property's publishing future remember this: Levitz isn't running DC anymore. The person in charge (i.e. Didio's boss) is a complete outsider. That means she doesn't have any personal ties top any of the properties that Legion has.
DC might not abandon the idea of the Legion, it just might not publish any Legion books on a regular basis.
