I know we're in Frank mode but I have some Legion stuff!

The LOSH is going to be in the next LEGO JL movie!

http://www.comicbookresources.com/article/lego-justice-league-cosmic-clash-creators-wont-stop-adding-pieces-to-the-dc-toy-box

and Levitz did a little interview about his time on Legion

http://13thdimension.com/long-live-the-legion-back-to-the-future-with-paul-levitz-2/

>Paul: Well, I guess the objective answer to it is there isn’t a regular Legion title these days. So, one way or another we disappointed the readers. I think there was a fairly unimpressed reaction to the work I did coming back on the series about four or five years ago. I certainly contributed to its failings. It’s hard to keep things around forever.

>Whether the Legion is simply a concept that has outlived its time or whether it just needs someone to execute it in a new and wonderful way, you could argue either side of it.

>I’d like to believe that somebody will step up in the next few years, do a new run of it. And people will remember that, love that and mine will fade into history. But that’s fine.

Tim Seeley went on a podcast a couple days ago and talked about Grayson, and I finally got around to listening to it

He didn't give much info but he talked about Robin War a bit, BRE and child soldiers, how he and King work together on the title, that Grayson controversy from a couple weeks back, AND how Seeley thought some Wildstorm characters where very fitting for Grayson

It's a very solid adaption of DQ mechanics into DW mechanics, and also British voice actors for most of the cast. Ultimately, it's still a Warriors game, and it won't do if those aren't your jam, but I think it's more developed in the gameplay/boss department compared to Hyrule, at the cost of less characters.

There's going to be a PC port, because Squeenix is making PC ports a thing for more franchises now, but I'm playing PS4 and current-gen 3D winds up working pretty well.

There was a page from Grayson #13 and some people went to twitter about it to complain about it. Said the writers were abusing the character and that's horrible and why haven't they acknowledged it's horrible, etc. It was personal for some and that's why they and others got more worked up on it.
Though on the podcast Seeley said that, in fact, it was meant to be showing how little privacy Dick really has. I case nobody got it by reading it. Which some didn't.

>>77624484
>any mention of which other Wildstorm characters?
Nah, the podcast person just asked why they included Midnighter, Apollo, Ladytron, etc and Seeley said how well they just fit in Grayson. Like Wildstorm had more trends like technology, human engineering, etc and stuff like that. I see what he means by it

The very first thing I ever pitched to DC was a mini called 'Kicks, featuring Cass Cain Batgirl, Mary Marvel, and Stargirl.

Stargirl spent two pages explaining bubble gum to Cass, who immediately weaponizes it.

I am bummed, though they were right to nix it, the plot needed a LOT of work (it was before I had written Deadpool).

Mike Carlin read it, he was pretty fair. But girl-lead comics were a tough sell, and it needed work.

When the New52 happened and there were so few female creators and titles, I re-pitched it as the Baby Birds of Prey.

think the new cast was Cass, Mary, Stargirl, Misfit, Black Alice and Bumblebee.

Dark Reign was cause of Secret Invasion, Osborn killed the Skrull Queen so he got to be top cop. Granted SI happened partially because Civil War weakened everyone

>James Tynion IV: So what's happening right now is now, Jason Todd and Tim Drake are off on their adventure that's going to end up bringing in characters that no one's expecting to show up in the series, and I'm very excited for people to finally find out who we're bringing in here — Cassandra Cain's not the only character who's coming back to continuity in this story.

>Nrama: Another character a lot of people are guessing resulted from that list you had, when Dick saw his name and other Bat-characters. The name Jean-Paul was on there. Could we look toward that name meaning something?

>Tynion: If eagle-eyed readers caught that, they might see something connected to that question play out over the next few weeks. So stay tuned in the book. There will be some surprises in store for you.

Also, it's funny how this guy acknowledges the monsters as people, even bothering to use the appropriate gendered pronouns as opposed to "it", but still slaughters them wholesale. That actually makes him even more of a prick.

>Manphibian's kind believed in a "Prime Mover" where they have not raised a hand against another of their kind for eons. This was until Manphibian's mate was murdered by someone in Manphibian's species. After being denied by his elders to deal with the murderer, Manphibian ended up pursuing the murderer into space. Manphibian's search took him across different planets until landing on Earth thousands of years ago.

He's the Fugitive!?!?

The real question is why doesn't Frank use ridiculous FUCK YOU weapons all the time?

>>77627472
He survived so that Frank and Man-Thing can wreck his candy ass even more thoroughly.

Alrightie have fun.

Honestly it's not that hard to make an X book without the whole "Hrrrr humanity hate us!" concept.

Thanks for reading, owls. More Frank tomorrow; we have ten issues left, including a Daken crossover!

Did Frank just THROW the man thing

yeah but it probably doesn't shoot knives or weird burrowy robots

it's a cornerstone of the franchise. just cause marvel is using the spice too much/badly doesn't make it wrong.

oh also sublime makes people hate mutants too if the racism thing doesn't work for you thx morrison
>>
>>77627595
Thanks for posting as always, Storyteller.

Franken-Castle is actually pretty great so far. The overall premise, that Frank teams up with the Legion of Monsters, is actually a solid story hook.

>>77626761
With all this supernatural/interdimensional shit happening here, you'd think Doctor Strange would show up and one shot those dumbass katana guys on his lunch break or something.
>>
>>77627685
Maybe it's one of those things he can't do. Like healing a 100 year old woman's bullet wound.
>>
>>77627655
The issue I have with it is that it's stale and not working if you seen that one issue with Jean Gray. If it wasn't for the fact that X-men is a long standing and popular book it would be cancelled by now.

Marvel is really popular in places like Japan compared to DC.

Thanks a lot OP again.

>>77627685
>>77627707

Strange doesn't give a shit about monsters, also I think he was depowered at this point? At the least not Sorcerer Supreme.

>>77627715

Yeah, but that's bad writing not anything with the concept.

ITS TIME TO FRANK

>>77627655
>it's a cornerstone of the franchise. just cause marvel is using the spice too much/badly doesn't make it wrong.
it's outdated and they haven't done anything interesting, new, or useful with it in ages

they need to take the X-men behind the barn
>>
>>77627751
Yeah that's what I mean. The whole concept of humanity is against us most writers can't do very well and use old ideas to the point of ad nausea. It's at the point that the fans can guess what is going to happen.
>Time travel
>Someone dies
>Someone comes from the future to change the past

Yep. Everyone pretty much just repeats what was done in the classic Byrne/Claremont run. Teen Titans has similar problems with so many writers wanting to copy the Perez run.

Except X-men is still on going and had several movies while LOSH doesn't have a movie.
>Nobody knows what the hell LOSH is

Sorry I'm salty because I really want to see a LOSH MvC style game.

Just like Omar getting got by the little kid.

I'm more disappointed that Frankencastle wasn't allowed to return the favor because of Logan.
>>
>>77628077
I'm curious to hear your point of view on this though.
>>
>>77626772
Used to have that issue
>>
>>77628079

Yeah, but they're really similar. Rabid fanbase, deep continuity, huge in the 80s, weird premise, X-men stole 2 of their best characters from losh! i used to have more. on Earth-L tho Legion got the Liefelds and shit and the 90s animated cartoon that was huge and X-men faded away.

>>77628108

Honestly part of it is a weak memory of what's Claremont/Byrne and what's Cockrum, or Smith, or etc etc. But redoing plot points doesn't mean much, there's so much more to the stories. Characterization, art, etc. Battle of the Atom didn't suck because it was about mutants from the future .

X-Men's just had a lot of bad writers and it's kinda hurt the brand but it keeps on going on momentum. Someone'll come and do good stories with 'em, the ideas are too strong. They've survived cancellation.

also I get annoyed when people talk about Marvel shitting/minimizing them and then seeming to miss that could make the stories bad.
