Okay, someone explain to be how Garridan Ranzz and Validus can exist at the same time...WHEN THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO BE ONE AND THE F**KING SAME?!?

And you wonder why I call this crap the "neo-classic" Legion. Because it only resembles the "classic" Legion we all knew and love.

This "revival" has been a f**king abortion.
S**tty writing.
S**tty art.
S**tty continumity gaffes.
S**tty sales.
S**tty chances of getting better.
S**tty fact that Johns and Meltzer buttraped Mark Waid in bring back this fraud of a revival because they wanted to stroke their f**king egos and didn't give a flame s**t about anybody but their own f**king selves.

Scott draws a great Cham. I really like that look.

Also like seeing the Legion lounging. Some of the best moments in LSH history is interaction between members in the HQ.

Nu52 continues to scramble things up so I'm uncertain on the Fatal Five's new continuity, but I'm certain answers are coming.

Gonna miss Kollins but really looking forward to Giffen's return!

Is it Wednesday yet?

In this interview Levitz states:

Levitz: Yeah. We've been planting pieces for the last six or eight months for this story. Some of it has been kicking around in our heads for awhile. But you've seen in recent issues of Legion, we have a different beginning for the Tharok character, for example.

The core logic that we're exploring here is the idea that in the mythology of the Legion as it stands in the DC universe, there has been a Fatal Five at some point, and the Legionnaires in fact have had run-ins with some of the members. But the Fatal Five we're going to see is a new union that the Legion has never faced before.

I'm a stickler for continuity (especially the Legions). But that's the thing about DC - continuity changes every twenty years or so. But as long as it's these characters, it's easy to roll with it!

Bring on the (new) Fatal Five!

Too bad Levitz hasn't been willing to play fast and loose with Legion continuity enough to de-age the old guard team members back to the late teens-early 20's. They still feel old as crap.
