More DCNu Team news - The Legion of Superheroes version... Ummmm

To be honest I have NO idea what version we're on by now... Let's say "N", when N is an integer which is probably still in single digits.

Seven heroes from the 31st century have traveled back to the present day. Their mission: Save their future from total annihilation. When the future tech they brought with them fails, they find themselves trapped in a nightmarish world and an ultimate struggle to survive. LEGION LOST #1 will be written by Fabian Nicieza and illustrated by Pete Woods, fresh off an acclaimed run of Action Comics.

Sigh... Time Lost Legionnaires, how novel, and nothing at all like the long arc of the Legion members being stranded in the present we saw in the 1990's

In the 31st century, the Legion of Superheroes is reeling from the loss of seven of their finest — and trying desperately to keep their youngest recruits alive against a series of terrible new threats. LEGION OF SUPERHEROES #1 will be written by fan-favorite Legion writer Paul Levitz and illustrated by Francis Portela.

This one is "one of the books you'll see the least amount of change taking place," says DiDio. Aside from the subtracted characters in Legion Lost of course

I don't mind there being a new term. I just don't like this particular one. I mean, does anyone use "nu" other than ironically?

I like it because it works cleverly between the "nu" and the letters for "New Universe" :p

you are far to generous with the word 'possible'...

I like DC's Skinner Box - an occasional plot line will make me happy so I'll keep pressing that damn lever...
