I have been a fan of the Legion since the 1981annual, and the Great Darkness Saga.  Since then, I have slowly found the old Adventures, superboys, and the rest.  What I love about the Legion is the idea of a team, and the Future.  Because of my being a Legionnare, I have a flight ring, I am looking forward to the new Cartoon. Are there any other Leagion fans?  what are your favorites

My favorite are:
  1. Cosmic boy
  2. Superboy
  3. Ultra Boy
  4. Brainaic 5
  5. Element Lad
  6. Shrinking Violet

I haven't heard about the new cartoon. What's the scoop?

I like         Chamelon Kid
                Colossal Boy
                Ultraboy
                Timberwolf (and when he became a furball)
                Brainiac (especially in the Bierbaum and Giffen era)
                I alwasy thought that the Legion women were the hottest around in comics.. Shadwo Lass, Dream Girl, Saturn Girl, etc...

Brin Londo is badass. There's nothing more to say. He was Logan before Logan.

Wildfire close second. It can't get worse than to be in love with the royal hotness that is Dawnstar, and to not even really exist. Tragic, cool character, loved the grand moments when he "exploded" from the suit, per Giffen.

I love the Legion.  Really miss the old "incarnation," but the current one has been decent. 

My top 6 (primarily because of the original continuity):

Saturn Girl
Lightning Lass
Brainiac 5
Wildfire
Karate Kid
Sensor Girl

I also liked Kinetix from the post Zero Hour reboot.

Always really dug Ultra-Boy. Plus his relationship with Phantom Girl always
resonated with me somehow.

Also liked Colossal Boy and Timber Wolf.

I loved the legion in the 70s & 80s. I kind of lost interest with all the major upheavals and revisions the team has suffered.It's really kind of sad. My favorites...

  • Mon-El
  • Braniac
  • Superboy
  • Chameleon Boy
  • Sun Boy
  • Timber Wolf
  • Element Lad

This was the first issue of Legion I bought, soley because Pat Broderick was the artist.  I had a vague idea of who the characters were, because my cousin was a DC reader and I'd read an issue or two when they were Superboy & the LSH.  The series went right into the Great Darkness Saga from this issue and I was hooked.  Even though I had no idea who Darkseid was, that storyline really made me a fan of the characters.
