Okay, I have to call foul on that one. Marvel Cosmic has the benefit of being a collection of disparate solo characters, taking place in "the present", whereas the Legion -- Legion Lost notwithstanding, as they HAVE to return to the future at some point -- is a single team that is running around 10 centuries hence. Considering the fact that solo characters lend themselves far more readily to the multiple books needed for an event than characters mostly known as a group, and that more readers (and creators)
tend to care about the present -- the era in which THEY live -- more than the unfamiliar future, you can't reasonably expect the Legion to have touched off the kinds of events as Marvel Cosmic.
Comparing DC's cosmic line to Marvel's over the past 7-8 years is automatic failure.
Another foul. DC unfortunately has Geoff Johns in Chief Creative charge of it, so DC Cosmic is horribly hobbled by a man who can't BEGIN to conceive of space characters that aren't "Lanterns!! LANTERNS!!!!! LANTERNS!!!!!!!!!
" Even Giffen's upcoming Threshold book, for all the messianic hoopla, is led by YET ANOTHER miserable @#$%-ing Green Lantern
. As if the Lanterns weren't getting enough ink monthly already...
You need Giffen, just accept it and move on (I know that's impossible though because every other poster in this thread is saying it)
Not everyone in this thread...
