and still you ask , why didn't superman ever visit the (pre-crisis) Legion ?
So, Legion of 3 worlds is over I would say I really enjoyed it, I take a moment to recall someof good/bad reboots the book has had...
Pocket universe - Yuck, I cannot imagine how (even tho' it was John Byrne) that anyone at DC ever thought this band aid would hold.
Valor replaces Superboy- This was ok, seemed to solve the problems. I even liked how DC explained all the near human races in the UP by making them seed colonies started by Valor. This was the only good thing to come out of "InVasion" Valor rescued humans the Dominion was experimenting on, they didn't want to go back to earth so he put them off on different planets. 1000 years later they hail him as a hero for it.
5 year gap - This was the awful "grim and gritty" period that shat all over most comics blah-blah... Adult Legion does not work.
Superboy a myth?- In the midst of a post-crisis version of the great darkness saga both sides go looking for Superboy , they find out that it is not Clark Kent ? Futher down the timestream they find "a" Superboy (Conner Kent) but he doesn't seem to match the Legend at all. I liked this for once you got to have it both ways isn't this what everyone wants ??? DC pitched it away quickly and replaced it with "Emo-Legion" (rools eyes)
Also what was up with the memory thing? At one point Saturngirl claims she erases superboy's memory when he goes back into the past to preserve the timeline. Finally, when DC decided to have a Legion book with no superboy she supposebly put the final whammy on him so he will never go into the future again to spare him trauma over his parents death. However in Superman 500 there is a Legion exhibit in the Superman museum and Superman laments that he doesn't see them anymore...
I seriously Wish Geoff Johns well, the fan deserve something good .
