What your missing though is that literally anything that DC does with the Legion that doesn't stick to Nacire's very detailed OCD plan he will complain about ad naseum.

This thread is a perfect example, Giffen was put on Legion Nacire complained, Giffen is off Legion Nacire complains.

Giffen is just another bad mistake by DC that's blown up in their face. It's just a shock at how long it took to happen.

You know why I complain about how DC handles the Legion so much? Because about everything DC has done with Legion since it ran Waid has been a failure.

Nothing you're saying counters my point at all.

And your point about Giffen is completely ridiculous.

And you have done nothing to show that DC has done anything right. Because you can't.

That was never my goal, I'm just pointing out that you're a lunatic when it comes to the Legion.

Hey, I've seen glimmers of hope every so often. There was the Timber Wolf/Sun Emperor fight where Brin countered Sun Emperor's "animal" taunts with "I'm human!" (Then DC ships him off to Legion Lost and lets DeFalco f**k him over with that s**tty retcon origin... :smt013 )

What have I gotten for the most part? Watching the faded glories of a once-great super-team being told by a writer whose best days were thirty years ago.

I'm sure DC not putting out a comic good enough that people would actually care about it is the bigger culprit.

Look at I Vampire, lots of people were mad that DC canceled what they considered a quality comic, despite the fact that sales were awful. Look at the Journey into Mystery fanatics going postal over at Marvel.

It's different with Legion. Legion fans aren't in love with the quality of the book, they're in love with a nostalgic concept.


The real problem is Legion fans. They're enough of a base that DC tries to make them happy just so a book will sell well enough to get a years worth of issues out, but they're not large enough to make it a hit. While playing to the base, every writer ends up alienating everyone else who hasn't read 30 years worth of stories. Legion is the hardest book to give two shits about ever.
