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

Bleh.

[up][up] 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

[up]

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

[up]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.

[up][up] 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:

"Our Legion is going to be a little different than past Legions," Bendis explained in an interview with Comicbook. "I know that sometimes in the past, the Legion have gotten together because things are so peaceful, they can't stand it. Our Legion is coming together out of what they think is dire necessity. Things are starting to crumble, and they're crumbling fast, and it really feels like it's time for a new Age of Heroes for the first time in a millennium. That there's a genuine sense of threat to all things."

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, some of Ryan Sook's designs. I like the costumes, although the haircuts are...meh. Shadow Lass looks awesome, though.

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

Wait, is that why King had Dick shot? I mean, I'm pretty sure that Tim was never going to become Nightwing — he was already marked for Bendis's Young Justice as Robin — so I don't think that's the case either. (Plus, King has a fondness for Dick, too, since he co-wrote the Grayson series.)

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.

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.

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.

[up][up] 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.
