30 Days of Scans Day 28 - Favorite Canonical Romance

So I have two favorite cannon romances and they both are from The Legion of Super-Heroes.

First up is Bouncing Boy and Triplicate Girl (Duo Damsel/Duplicate Damsel. The reason is because I though it was awesome. Bouncing Boy was the chubby kid who scored the hottie. And they worked. I hated the version that dated the three guys at once.

Next is Lightning Lad and Saturn Girl. I don't know why I like it. I just do.

Despite being retconned I liked Violet/Lightning Lass.

Looks it. They're certainly not together in current continuity, and Ayla has been shown to be with, or have recently broken up with, Timber Wolf (who she was with before the 5 year jump)...and quite a bit of other stuff from even earlier than that has been retconned, so...

Chuck/Lu and Dawnie/Wildfire have also been broken up, apparently, but the latter is explicitly broken up, and gods only know what's going on with Chuck at all. Current Legion continuity is CRUEL to my favourite 'ships.

Ah, so it just kinda got caught in the retcon storm.

Am I the only one who's, er, somewhat aggravated that the Archie-verse is now officially more evolved regarding Teh Gay than the Legion-verse is?

That's just wrong.

As someone said about the Archie situation, the first gay character is easy, it's when you introduce their boyfriend/girlfriend that things get tricky. It's alright to TALK about being gay, it's being SHOWN being gay which gets the prudes in a tizzy.

True. But I really wish they'd get on with it. If I can handle other "grownup" things in comics that I don't even care for-- throat-slitting frenzies and entire galaxies blowing up and the like, I'm pretty sure I'll be okay with it if Sun Boy decides to start going out dancing with other dudes, or whatever. :/

Chuck and Lu are not only still married, but returned recently from a renewed honeymoon, showing that Lu had gotten her powers ramped up (I guess based on Una's death in Countdown).

Where did this return happen?

Adventure is set before either joined, and there's no sign of either of them, let alone both, in Legion.

Not sure how that could be? Triplicate Girl was the first member to join after the three founders.

I had originally included some weasel words about the early Legion timeline being awful confusing...should have kept them.

[personal profile] perletwo 2010-09-13 04:05 am (UTC)(link)
I dispute the Dawny/Wildfire breakup - they're pretty much just status quo star-crossed, I think. This is from Adventure Comics #4, after they've taken Blok to find the White Black Witch and Blok agrees to stay and help her contain the evil magics she's absorbed from Mordru:

Looks pretty broken up to me. Neither of them is happy about it not working out, but the fact remains that it didn't work.

Huh. I read it totally the opposite way, that they were still committed, however doomed. Guess it's a glass half full/glass half empty kind of thing.

As far as I can tell it was canon for just 'original' Legion and the first reboot introducing Valor. Other versions, no. *sigh*

[personal profile] silicondream 2010-09-13 06:10 am (UTC)(link)
Yep, as of Zero Hour. That's when we lost Element Lad/Sean (formerly Shvaughn) Erin, too.

Oh, and Winath stopped being nudist then, IIRC. These are all sad things.

I consider that kinda different; in ZH we got a new set of Legion characters different from the old ones, but the old ones were still together with whomever offscreen and such.

[personal profile] silicondream 2010-09-13 05:59 pm (UTC)(link)
Well, but in ZH the entire old cast was deleted along with its timeline--there was no multiverse back then, after all, so they didn't really have an offscreen to retire to.

To my mind, when they brought back the old cast for the current version but re-re-retconned away the Five Years Later era, that was just adding a few more nails to the coffin.

[personal profile] q99 2010-09-13 06:41 pm (UTC)(link)
To me, it felt like the old characters were 'retired.' Ditto when the threeboot came around.

Bringing the old characters back but altering them somehow feels worse.

Yay Vayla! I do hope those two get together in the current incarnation of the Legion.

I also like Threeboot/Prime Brainy and Nura. Especially since the majority of the courtship occurred in Brainy's head.

I was (and am) too old school to get much out of that pairing. :/

Also, I hear some fans raised holy Hell about Thom being Black, and I'm kind of glad I wasn't around for the uproar if it was true. I don't think it shows my fandom in a really good light.

i dont think it was rectconned... its still the same legion, but Ayla always liked both Timber wolf and Vi, Ayla was Bi, so i think unless they officially/explicitly stated she and Vi, are both straight, she just chose TW over SV

but i know what you mean... i want gay Invisible Kid/Chemical King :( isnt Chem, alivie now? he was in teh SB Adventure story line wasnt he?
shanejayell: (Question)

[personal profile] shanejayell 2010-09-15 04:17 pm (UTC)(link)
Unless they explicitly say Ayla/Vi happened, I'm assuming it was retconned.

Not being negative, but I don't want to get my hopes up too. *lol*
