Gentleman

How would you save LOSH from being in perpetual limbo?

I would go full on retelling of the origin and have the first few issues be just Lighting Lad, Saturn Girl and Cosmic Boy meeting the first first time, forming the Legion and meeting Superboy. Only then would you start reintroducing all the other members. This would have to be in its own self contained continuity given what a clusterfuck their current status is post nu52

Give them a new ongoing and have them go about business as usual. No bullshit, just straightforward Legion stories. Maybe have a spotlight issue every now and then.

That's how the Legion should always be, and it's what made it great. Being in the future made it mostly separate and able to do its own thing.

Hire Hickman to write and let him do whatever the fuck he wants and market the fuck out of it.

LOSH is a relic of the past, they're better off gone. Nobody who isn't a virgin dinosaur likes them nowadays anyway.

Do a Lemire and just pull all your favourite Legionnaires out of nowhere and put then on a team. Unlike Lemire, get someone who can write teams.

Parker/Shalvey would be a pretty awesome creative team

His Brainiac 5 would be awful

god yes

As much as I like Hickman he is poor at characterization and with a cast as large as LOSH we would only get a small hand full of characters with the majority being relegated to cameos.

Honestly I'm kinda surprised LOSH hasn't stayed afloat on the strength of its waifus alone

No reboot, use the Lemire idea of combining rosters across all the boots with the Retroboot setting, and just fucking tell some future cosmic stories
>>
>>78304006
Starting over is boring. The only way I see out of the mess is just not giving a fuck. Don't waste time explaining character x is from the pre-post-zero-crisis Legion of earth-whatever. Just use who you want to use.

One other thing, make them actual teenagers. Retroboot was marketed as Young Justice but it was all adults with kids talking about their recent divorce. It was weird.
>>

Seriously. The Legion has some of the best girls. It's kind of surreal how there's so little of that sort of following of it.

You have to work to find the small amount of decent fanart there is.

I may be a dinosaur by 4chan standards (26), but the second part isn't true.
