Geoff Johns revealed there'll be a hint to the Legion of Superheroes in either ARROW, THE FLASH or LEGENDS OF TOMORROW, which he hopes will gather enough traction to fully introduce the team further down the line.

Fuck this shit

No one will ever give a shit about the Legion of Superheroes.
>>
>>78983539
This, I'm more excited about the Legion's appearance in the upcoming Lego DC movie.
>>
>>78983539
Better than WB.
>>
So who will get racebent?

BEST GIRL WHEN

THANK YOU BASED JOHNS
>>
>>78983707
They don't really need to racebend anyone new after the Threeboot gave them real racebent versions to work from. Tornado Twins are kind of a given though unless Iris won't be their mom anymore.
>>
>Jonah Hex
>LOSH
thank you based Geoff
>>
>"I love the Legion. They’re underused and hopefully we’ll get them out there soon.”
then make a fucking book about it!
>>
>>78983494
Hopefully better than the Smallville appearance.
>>
>>78983940
I'm kind of glad they were put on break for a little while. They had some good stories in other appearances but the ongoings were pretty shitty since Waid left. Cosmic DC in general needs some work since even GL isn't good now and Omega Men is doomed.
>>
>>78983940
By Hickman and his 60 issues he already has prepared?
>>
>>78983619
I still miss based Michigan J Frog.
>>
>>78983494
Well it's about damn time.

>>78983539
Dude, have you actually read any Legion stuff? Half cape antics, half teen drama. They kinda fall into CW's wheelhouse.

>>78983940
>Then make a fucking book about it!
He'd probably love to, but making a book requires approval from the management.
>>
>>78984034
I'm seriously scared this might happen now that he's no longer exclusive. I hope to Didio that hack doesn't shit up DC.
>>
>>78983539
Given obvious ties it was going to be CW or Supergirl.
>>
>>78983990
I maintain that Adventure Comics was a solid book.
>>
>Attractive young adults with superpowers
>Affordable leather jacket-based wardrobe.
>Relationship drama
>Achievable future aesthetics.
>A DC Comics property.

The signs were there all along.
>>
>>78984097
>They kinda fall into CW's wheelhouse.
>trusting CWto do any of those in ways that doesn't make you want to switch off
>>
>>78984107
I wouldn't be surprised at all if that's how it turns out, maybe even giving him two Legion titles. God knows they can fill out many teams.
>>
>>78983990
Green Lantern might do better if it stopped repeating the same damn plot ad nauseum.

When the hell was the last time a GL arrested a criminal?
>>
>>78984034
>>78984107
The thing is that he might be the kind of guy the Legion needs. That sort of long plotting is generally when they've had their best stories.

>>78984139
Yeah it wasn't awful and when those academy kids were added the main book it helped that one get a little better too (at least until the very end where you could tell no one gave a shit and they were just being spiteful). But when the best stories featuring the characters are unrelated minis like the Star Trek crossover I think that's a problem.
>>
>>78984034
Jesus Christ, please no
>>
>>78984211
It's fucked how many autists eat CW trash when the teengirl shit gets a DC painted on it. Such nerds XD
>>
So Superman confirmed?
>>
>>78984269
Yeah, but those stories had payoff and made use of the cast.

And man, remember when there were four Legion books when the New 52 hit and everyone was all "Legion Renaissance"?
If we only knew...
>>
>>78984332
No? You don't need Superman to do LoSH. He was completely divorced from them during the 90s.
>>
ACTUAL QUOTE

>You’ll see a hint of the Legion on one of our shows, keep watching” Johns told reporters. "I love the Legion. They’re underused and hopefully we’ll get them out there soon

so i'm guessing Rip has a flight ring or something.

keeping my hopes low, low for now
>>
>>78984345
... I am pretty sure one of the most common things about LOSH is they were inspired by Superman. I mean its main thing is a bunch of Aliens working together to protect Earth, based on the ideals of Superman. This is basically Superman's legacy. I don't know if this was the original conception of LOSH but it is one of the most popular.
>>
>>78984386
And easily replaceable.

They could even make them nature-born metahumans and say the Flash was their beacon.
>>
>>78984332
Nah.

Just go the "inspired by the golden age of superheroes" route, rather than Superman in particular.

>>78984365
With the implication that it's the one Booster stole.
That'd be fine by me.
>>
>>78984405
I don't think you can replace the premise of them being aliens, that is like a major point.
>>
>>78984430
>Booster stole.
Liberated.
>>
>>78984386

Yeah but it's super easy to change that to inspired by Superheroes of the 20th Century, that's what happened in Threeboot
>>
>>78984386
It was the original concept but it was removed when the Superman editorial in the 90s didn't want it there anymore. So it got changed to them more generally being inspired by the "modern heroes" and Mon-El's legacy of adventures in the past as the seeder of planets. This was not rectified until Infinite Crisis.

But my point is that there's no reason to jump to Superman when in the comics there's been times when he hasn't been affiliated with them and Barry Allen's children and granddaughter have historically been on the team as well.
>>
>>78984454
Sure, Michael
>>
>>78983781
Not a chance.

Our world is too impure.
>>
>>78984386
>... I am pretty sure one of the most common things about LOSH is they were inspired by Superman.
Yeah, and when Crisis hit, he was more or less replaced by Mon-El. The Legion was instead inspired by superheroes in general, and Mon-El in particular since he was partially responsible for the mass space colonization.
>>
>>78984459
True, I Guess I just want Superman in a show that is not a teen drama or in a shipwreck of a poorly written show.
>>
>>78984034
Jesus Christ, please no
>>
>>78984500
Let's not pretend like the CW shows aren't teen dramas. But also we're never going to get another Lois and Clark anyway, just have to deal with it.
>>
Have Vril Dox join the cast next season.
>>
>>78983781
>Jenni
>best girl
>implying
In any case, I do agree that she would be the best way to introduce the Legion to viewers of Flash at at least. Just have this adorable girl from the future appear and you've got your hook.

>>78984438
Technically speaking, only some of them are aliens. Most are humans who colonized other planets and "evolved" superpowers because comic book science.
>>
>>78984537
>implying we'd ever get a L.E.G.I.O.N show
>EVER
Oh child, I wish, but nah. Let's get away from the candyland bullshit thoughts.

>>78984592
Best girl varies for me

Original: Imra
Reboot: Jenni

YES!

>>78984537
too much keikaku for casual viewers
>>
>>78984294
I just watch it for the 5 minutes of actual comic inspired autism like Gorilla City or King Shark
>>
>>78984034
Worst case scenario it'd still be worth talking about rather than the painful blandness of modern Levitz that killed the Legion's momentum from Legion of Three Worlds/Superman and the Legion.

I'm saying this as someone who fucking loathes Hickvengers and all it stands firm, and as a gigantic Giffen-fag. I'd take that risk.
>>
>>78984670
Vril is going to be in Gates' Supergirl comic. He could totally show up on the show. Right? ;__;
>>
>>78985035
Well Gates was coy when asked to clarify if it meant Vril or just normal Brainiac.
>>
But anon, they already were on the CW
>>
>>78985035
>Gates' Supergirl comic

Hold up.
>>
>>78984332
Rip Hunter did say in one of the trailers for LOT that he saw "Men of steel break and dark knights fall"
>>
>>78985184

He even came on /co/ to talk about it a little but trolls scared him off by pretending to be him and making BLACKED jokes.
>>
>>78985184

Digital comic in show-canon
>>
>>78985310
Obviously referring to Citizen Steel and Blackest Night.
>>
>>78984223
>When the hell was the last time a GL arrested a criminal?
Around GL 30-33, they tracked down some criminals
>>
>>78983494
Legion should be in the Supergirl universe though, they have ties to her and Superman.
>>
>>78986565
But supergirl is an awful show that no one is watching.
>>
>>78985340
4chan goes autistic when someone of significance is here of course they scared him off.
>>
>>78986593
>awful
That's your opinion
>no one is watching
Objectively untrue.
>>
>>78984332
Nah, they are dead.

>>78984365
Johns told reporters. "I love the Legion. They’re underused and hopefully we’ll get them out there soon

"i love wally"
"i love mr terrific".

Fuck johns.
>>
>all this butthurt
Nice company war, bros.
>>
>>78986565
Let's be honest, the only reason to put them on Supergirl would be for Brainy/Kara. You could just split the team between both universes if you want.
>>
>>78987992
What are you even talking about?
>>
>>78988086
I think you already know...
>>
>>78983557
Yep
>>
>>78983707
Lightning Lad, to fall into the tradition of "Black people conduct electricity".
>>
>>78983494
I'm guessing that if they're going to put it on the CW that they'll strip away any connection to Superman due to Supergirl and the DCEU.

And considering the consistant rumor that Braniac was going to be the villain in at least one of the Justice League movies, we can probably say good-bye to ol' Brainy 5.
>>
>>78984294
Can't get enough.
>>
>>78987581

Poor Johns, all the characters he loves forever unused

and Wally/LOSH is his best stuff too

Will Cyborg actually do something in the movies, though?

Justice League maybe, there's rumours that his own movie is being retooled in to a Titans movie though
>>
>>78988343
>No connections to Superboy/Girl

I'm cool with that, honestly. There -was- one version of the Legion that had them take inspiration from a Phantom Zone-trapped Mon-El because Superman being Superboy was retconned out.

They can always invent a new super-intelligent alien/robot teammate too. Maybe a more advanced version of an AI similar to Earth 1 Zoom's super computer
>>
>>78988343
>>78991199
I'm going to assume you two are either stupid or insane.
>>
>>78993404
They're stupid and don't understand how the embargoes work.

They probably think Supergirl can't talk about Superman or Krypton too.
>>
>>78983781
XS in Flash is all but guaranteed, they just need to wait to get Barry/Iris back online and use her as drama fuel.

Monkey's paw.
>>
>>78983707
Rokk will turn in a latino or asiatic guy, or Imra...

fuck legion, I'll be interested when L.E.G.I.O.N. is announced

Yessssss I hope so.

If its the Flash ;Jenni makes the most sense to appear. She is Barry's granddaughter.
