Title: I am elated! I am scared!
Post by: Perry on June 11, 2019, 12:46:44 PM
I feel like a Charon from Star Trek with THIS (https://www.newsarama.com/45510-bendis-teasing-legion-of-super-heroes-millennium-announcement-this-week.html) "news"



_ for those that are not up on their Star Trek Aliens ... THIS (https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/memoryalpha/images/4/4d/Bele_and_Lokai.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20081215234656&path-prefix=en) is an alien from the planet Charon
 ;D

I assume you mean you are divided, eh?

Yeah  :-\

I just knew it would come to him being the one to bring them back, I just so wanted someone else. I don't like him on team books as it is (X-Men, Guardians, Avengers, et all), he does so much better on single hero stuff (DD, Jessica Jones, Spider-Man, etc...) and now he is (maybe) getting one of the hardest teams to handle? It just doesn't bode well.
THis is like Slott being on the FF. I am going to go in with high hopes, I just fear they will be so crushed after two or three issues that I just don't care anymore.

Hell, I was ripping through some more Legion today ... almost finished my third issue in a row, but now I just don't feel like getting back to it

Well if I had my guess he is coming in to "Disassemble" them down to smaller more manageable cast.  Which will piss a lot of people off.  But maybe it needs it.  I'll keep my fingers crossed, expectations low, and hopes up.

Oh I would love it if it only starts off with about ... 7 members or so. No-one, well, almost no-one, can tell a good story featuring 20 to 22 active members, it is just crazy. Unless they do the old Gold team Blue team type of thing like the X-Men of the 90's and even then it only works with 14 or so members ... at most.

Hopefully, yeah, under 7 members.

Five sounds good.

Maybe four ... (how low can I go?)
 :D

I'll chime in conversationally, as we ought to here, so I'm saying my broken record-

-not a fan.

And I'll peacefully leave with that.

Yeppers, I think he would be one. :)  He was certainly one I, and about 99% of the comic reading community, was hoping for

Welp. It's official.
Ryan Sook on the art and a two part mini to start it off called Millennium ... or something like that.

Well, here we go.
Crossing fingers and toes and looking forward to seeing it

By the way, wonderful cover design to echo the ring design.
