And then I read this, and wonder how much DC is really supportive of the Legion.

The breakneck pace of Grant Morrison’s run on ACTION COMICS continues as the Superman of the present day must team up with suspiciously different versions of the Legion of Super-Heroes to save the jeans-wearing Superman of five years ago! Whose hand is that on the cover? Why, the leader of the Anti-Superman Army, of course!
Plus, a backup by Sholly Fisch and ChrisCross that spins directly out of the lead story!
This issue is also offered as a special combo pack edition, polybagged with a redemption code for a digital download of the issue.
I guess that whole stuff about how Superman needed the "real" Legion in his childhood apparently went out the door when Johns decided he really didn't give enough of a $#!t to stay on Superman and/or Adventure and ran off to write The Flash. Leaving those Supes and the Legion lying on the floor like a spolied kid would leave broken toys he stoped caring for once he saw a shiny new one.
I wonder if DC would let Morrison do this if they actually cared more about the Legion.
