Loving the Legion

I do believe I have become a Legion of Super-Heroes fanboy.

I started watching the WB animated series on a whim recently as I've been looking for something to replace Justice League Unlimited and Teen Titans, and it more than fit the bill. Since then my interest in the comics has piqued, and I've checked out bits and pieces from several eras, including Mark Waid's recent Supergirl and the Legion and Geoff Johns's storyline in Action Comics. The best I've read so far, though, has been the "Legion of the Damned" and "Legion Lost" storylines from the post-Zero Hour/pre-Infinite Crisis Legion, which honestly got me a little misty-eyed at the end.

At this point I'm looking forward to Final Crisis: Legion of Three Worlds more than Final Crisis itself! I just hope Johns doesn't mess up the post-ZH Legion, 'cause I've gotten rather attached to them.

That's all I've got to say for now. Just felt like sharing my enthusiasm.

I am pretty sure Johns will have them disemboweled. :)

aciqismxJohns will probobly have Black Adam go on yet another silly and inane rampage and kill all of the Legionnaires (except for THEIR trinity: Lighting Lad, Saturn Girl and Cosmic Boy)!

You guys are so optimistic! :D

Seriously though, ten bucks says it'll be Emoboy-Prime doing the ripping and tearing.
