So we agree, we should change the imprint of the Legion, change the writer and artists and turn the title completely on it's head, because "It's official the new Legion series is a flop".

In essence we should burn the house down to get rid of the termites.

No, Legion at needs a new writer and artist. Beyond that, it needs to refocus on what made it a successful book in the first place.

More like a more positive, optimistic future setting, a team in it's late teens-early 20's, good continunity, and a art that is closer to Grell or Cockrum than the looser, more cartoonish art.

It's like DC editorial has given up on the idea that success comes from great writing and great art and has reduced the medium to nothing more than a series of publicity stunts.

Well yes. Of course. It's been that way for absolutely ages.

This made me laugh.

I'd say make the Legion youthful, there's a reason why readers always love books about young people, if you're young you feel related, and if you're old you remember your youth. It's a win win scenario.

I would either have Time Trapper/infinite man/Glorith de-age a good chunk of the team back to their teens, or have some kind of soft reboot where continuity was for the most part preserved (with nods to NuSupes), but a younger team.

But now they've gone to the extreme. Events within the books themselves instead of massive company events. Whoring out properties they think will get them money (Watchmen). Reducing or cutting characters due to them thinking readers are stupid.

I told you they shoulda stuck with the post-Zero-Hour team. You yourself just described them. All DC has to do is hire a more realistic artist than Moy.

Archie Legion went way off the rails when it turned Projectra into a snake. It's the pre-LSH #63 continuity that Legion Fandom claimed they wanted.

No, you're a complete hypocrite when it comes to this argument.

Just accept it.

I'm going to ignore the fact that you're a complete idiot and point out the entire body of Vertigo work.

The downside of what I pointed out is that Marvel is reacting to this, and there a number of people here buying into it.

Plus, it's not just that he objects to the current direction of the LSH book, he's going to go on about it until DC build a Legion title to his specifications.

The books made her partly human during... which story was it, the Hypertaxis story??
In any case, all a writer has to do is take her all the way. Problem solved.
