Beginning in February 'no one is safe!' This doesn't bode well for Karate Kid!
Starting as regular Penciler with the February issue #17 the title will go through what Keith Giffen calls a "revamp on the run." This issue also kicks off the Fatal Five arc that has been building for a few months now and promises to be "a big, huge, massive spectacle" that "not everyone is going to live through it." The Fatal Five will live up to their name as they bring dire consequences to the Legion.
Working with current Writer Paul Levitz they are aiming for a change in direction. This won’t be another reboot or another new beginning but it will bring a new feel and a new atmosphere to the title. The idea here is to get people paying attention to the Legion again — paying attention and talking about the book again. In an article about Giffen’s work on the new title “Threshold”
he commented that he also wants to add “fun” back to the “Legion” title.
“I know we've promised that before with the Legion, and we've played around with so many reboots that the words feel hollow. But this time around, we're doing some really stunning things, but within the confines of the story, and we're doing it from the starting point of having an affection and respect for the characters and concepts. But it's because of that affection and respect that we want to make them even better.”
Below are the covers for issues #17 and 18.

About the Author - IvCNuB4
IvCNuB4 likes to maintain an air of mystery by never publicly revealing his true name unless you are one of the four lucky Outhouse posters he has PM'd it to. A life-long Chicago native, he was introduced to comics by his older brother's vast collection of Silver Age issues. When he is not at his day job as an IT geek or making the most of Chicago's three months of incredible summer, he can found spending way too much time with his very large, very loud Italian family. You will never find him on the likes of Facebook or Twitter as he scoffs at the necessity of most forms of social media.
