Comics Should Be Good! is doing a meta-poll about “your favorite characters“, which should be amusing, especially if people manage to actually do their favorites and not just pick Batman and Superman because they’re Important Comic Characters. However, this is very telling:
Regarding Legion of Superheroes characters, please specify which version you mean (pre-Zero Hour, Post-Zero Hour, Current series), but seriously, is anyone going to pick one other than the pre-Zero Hour ones?
Because they can’t seriously entertain the notion of people having started to read the Legion seriously other than the versions which are, at this point, nearly fourteen years out of print. Remember how people will always tell you that the comic audience is aging itself into irrelevance? This is what they’re talking about.
(For those not understanding the lingo – “Zero Hour” happened in 1994. It sucked, you didn’t miss anything.)
