Warners Are Working On A Legion Of Superheroes Movie

Remember ages ago, when I said there was a Suicide Squad movie in the works. And I had a script? Well that was later made official, even if the script has been rewritten since then – they’re still keeping the codenames-as-callsigns-no-costumes aspect though… Anyway, where was I? Oh yes. Also coming through the pipeline and Warners, […]

Somewhere, There’s A Viper With The Name Dan Abnett On It

Dan Abnett is known for his science fiction. With Legion Of Superheroes for DC and Guardians Of The Galaxy for Marvel he’s the perfect fit for another space based comic franchise Battlestar Galactica. Our own Jim Kuhoric got to chat with Abnett about his run on the classic 70s TV series turned comic book. JIM […]

Has The Legion Of Superheroes Been Shunted Off Into Earth 2?

So this week saw the final issue of The Legion Of Superheroes. In an epilogue, it featured this panel, with Bouncing Boy talking to Triplicate Girl. Bleeding Cool reader Michael S. Lucart writes; Unless that’s a tease for something coming up in “our” universe, that means that the Legion of the past 23 issues has […]

Who Are The Justice League 3000? (UPDATE)

Travis Ellisor writes; Some speculation on Justice 3000…. as exclusively revealed by CBR yesterday, about fifteen minutes after Bleeding Cool did. Somehow. And based on Howard Porter’s designs… Superman – It could actually be the present day Superman, since he has time traveled to the Legion’s time many times before. Or he just lived that […]

What Will We Do With A Cancelled Legion Of Superheroes? The New 45….

Paul Levitz posted on Facebook; The word came out yesterday. DC’s officially announced the end of the current run of the LEGION with #23…sad to see my old friends go, and hoping my tale for that issue with Kevin Maguire illustrating will be an honorable end. As a reader, I’ll miss them until their next […]

DC Cancels Legion Of Superheroes, Dial H, More – Monday Trending Topics

It’ll be very interesting to see what’s in the future for the 31st Century So, Legion Of Superheroes is cancelled in August. Which means it won’t even make it to Villain’s Month in September. Here’s the solicit in question; Most-Read TV/Film Stories Monday: The Doctor Who Finale Has Escaped Into The Wild – The Name Of […]

DC Cancels Dial H And Demon Knights Too…

Sorry folks, Dial H and Demon Knights are joining Legion Of Superheroes in the cancellation collection in August… I’ve really enjoyed both series, through occasional downs but lots of ups. Both were in my New 52 top ten, certainly. With the New 52 reducing in the last few months, and another three dropping, it looks […]


Keith Giffen Leaves Legion Of Superheroes After Two Issues?

It was meant to be the reunion of Team Levitz/Giffen. Two creators, both committed to Legion stories, both working on the book separately and together in the past, both with The Great Darkness Saga on their resumes. And reunited again for new Legion Of Superheroes stories, starting this month. However, I understand that, despite the solicitations […]

The Legion Of Well Endowed Heroes

Well, if Archie Comics are doing it, why not the Legion Of Superheroes?  Take this fight scene with a certain physically malleable young lady. Going in for the kill there, she’s got no leverage, what’s she going to… Of course, grow a ten foot hinged barbed penis. That will work. Still, despite the fighting, at […]

Sixteen Thoughts About Sixteen DC Comics – Justice League, Batman Inc, Catwoman, Captain Atom, Wonder Woman, Red Hood And The Outlaws, Batman, Blue Beetle, Supergirl, Thunder Agents, Batman Odyssey, Blue Beetle, DC Universe Presents, Birds Of Prey, Green Lantern Corps And Legion Of Superheroes

This week, a number of the DC Universe books end with the maiming or killing or someone close to the main character – by one of the main characters. I won’t tell you which, obviously. Why not collect them all? Captain Atom #4’s artist, Freddie Williams excels this issue, his art style loosening up even […]

Jim Shooter On Amending The Legion Of Superheroes (UPDATE)

Artist Francis Manapul has responded, below; On a recent blog entry discussing marriages in comics, Jim Shooter reprints a synopsis to his editor for a two part Legion Of Superheroes story, during which he says; About 30 years later, in 2007, I went back to the future and wrote the Legion of Super-Heroes again for […]

Wednesday Comics Review: Batman, Wonder Woman, Legion Of Superheroes, Supergirl, Nightwing, Birds Of Prey, Captain Atom, Catwoman, Green Lantern Corps, DC Universe Presents, Blue Beetle, Red Hood And The Outlaws

All Comics courtesy of Orbital Comics of London. Batman #1 by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo has possibly the worst cover of the line. Not that there’s anything wrong per se but it misses a massive trick. The comic has a beautiful beginning aimed at long time and new reader alike, giving each a different […]

When Paul Levitz Spoke To Google. For An Hour. Without A Moustache.

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k71j-nGaYlc[/youtube] Paul Levitz spoke to Google employees earlier this month about DC Comics and the Legion of Super-Heroes. And yes, he has no moustache. He seems to have shaved it last last year. And it’s stayed off. My favourite paragraph? After sharing my own concerns over current limitations of digital comics, Paul says “Somewhere, probably […]
