I loved COIE but it really fucked the Legion up - it never recovered in the previous DCU. I had high hopes that DC would come up with the goods in the NU52 but sadly....


Ironically, the COIE, which was supposed to "fix" everything, ended up screwing a LOT of things up... some of which was not evident in the short run but which became evident only after some years.

Zonk is cool with me. That's what I get called on CBR too. :D

Chameleon Boy isn't actually my favorite, even if I do like him alot. I just thought he would make a cool avatar. My favorites, in order, are:

1. Cosmic Boy
2. Lightning Lad
3. Sun Boy
4. TImberwolf
5. Colossal Boy

Take the "mina" out of "abomination", replace it with "ort," and you have what the classic "reboot" was.
