A Twitter thread about a theory that Leviathan is Roy Harper.
Legion of Superheroes returns with a two-book "Millennium" series followed by an ongoing. Brian Micheal Bendis is the writer.
Well the fact you have Ollie and Jim harper being called out
Chesire probably raided the grave and took Roy for a dip in the Lazarus pit
Note this does not make Jade like her young justice self... Comics Jade is alot more amoral and revivng Roy's probably just so she can pawn Lian off on him anyway
I was all for it until they announced The Bendis.
Is it really "pawning" if Lian would be better off with Roy anyway?
for the most part outside of the Jon thing which I understand Supersons was awesome
Bendis hasn't been THAT bad guys geez
Yeah Rogal is still worse then Dorn but, Rogal was always destined to fail the moment they made him bargain bin freiza without a decent design
I'm mostly alluding to the fact that Jade even with her love for Lian is never really "Good" IE see her using Lian's death just to jerk Roy around

Honestly the reason I prefer YJ Jade is because she's nowhere near the God awful Dragon Lady stereotype her comic counterpart devolved into. Her being sisters with Artemis also means she has a dynamic she can play off that doesn't involve the white men she seduces for their babies.
Hmmm. After seeing that evidence, yep, he's probably Roy. Which is good, because Roy's not dead! Yay! Also: is Leviathan actually being set up as the villain or as an anti-hero, a la the Red Hood? Is he killing any innocent people? If not, I can totally see them making him Roy and then keeping Roy as a main character.
Also, yes: bring back Lian. Remembering he has a daughter would probably be immensely helpful for Roy.
Man I was hoping bendis would get batman this seems like it would play to the opposite of his strengths as a writer. Big cosmic huge cast etc when his best stuff has been more down to earth and street level with a smaller cast
As much as I like Lian, they should work on fixing Roy first before they drop a kid on his lap.
Yeah, I can see it going the way of Bendis's Guardians of the Galaxy run, which was a lot of nothing. But the Legion has never really been like the Guardians and so Bendis might do things differently.
His teams aren't always bad — his Defenders run was pretty damn awesome, even though it was only ten issues.
Defenders only had 4 people on the team. Legion has more even on its smallest.
Bendis also wrote New Avengers and Dark Avengers, both of which were good (okay, New Avengers got bogged down in crossovers a lot, but still) and had tons of characters.
All we know for sure is that, well, the characters are going to talk. A lot. Like this? Yes, like this. A lot? Yes, a lot.
More on Bendis's Legion:
Bendis also revealed that the series will have a large number of perspectives in regards to the characters.
"It's funny because there are 34 lead characters," Bendis said. "There are a lot of perspectives that the story is going to be handled from. So, so many perspectives that almost no story will be left unturned. Not every character will see things the same way. It's like every great team: some will be on the same page, some will not. It's going to be a time of great chaos and struggle in the galaxy, and it's up to them to get to work and figure it out as they're going; they're young."
Also, new Harley and Ivy mini-series by Jody Hauser and Adriana Melo.

Ok my interest of the Wally West mini absolutely went to zero when they announced the worst creative team Scott Lobdell and Brett Booth
Number 1. Scott Fucking Lobdell aka DC's number one Yes Man and DC analogue of Kevin Dunn. this man ruined the Teen Titans with the Bar-Torr BS, he ruined Starfire before DC went to the animated series route of giving her an Adaptational Modesty and his Nightwing with "Ric" Grayson which King attempted to kill Dick to make Tim the new Nightwing but it was shot down real quick and said solo used Babs as a blatant Audience Surrogate by telling the fans did not support his book. While his Red Hood and Outlaws improved under competent editors in case he fuck it up
And Number 2 Booth's art style is actually terrible akin to Liefeld's muscle man and tight teeth, Humberto Ramos skinny man drawing and Greg Land's picture tracing

I think it was more like "We want to shake up the Nightwing book" which, unfortunately, equaled "amnesia and a new name."
It's sad, too, because I like Sam Humphries writing, but that apparently pushed off away from the book.
Did they undo it yet?
Nope. He is still stupidly going by "Ric Grayson."
I think Doomsday Clock shows him back to being Dick, but when that book takes place is...nebulous.

MY! NAME'S! NOT! RIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIICK!
Has it been explained why Kon, Bart, and Tim are back to existing, existing, and being Robin yet?
I would suggest reading Young Justice.
Also, I think Tim has gone by Robin ever since coming back from the "dead"/kidnapped by Mr. Oz.

Oh, I thought he was still Red Robin.
I mean, "A Lonely Place of Living" in Detective Comics restored his pre-New 52 origin, when he became the new Robin to Batman, so I assume when he came back, he just started calling himself Robin again. Nobody ever refers to him as "Red Robin" anymore.
So we are having two Robins? It could have been a chance to give Tim a name that doesn't make people snicker.
