Mart - I know how you feel, but it's going on 30 years since I did my first DC work. Oh, and to Id, I did design the all-conceiling costume for Sensor Girl's first appearance. I won't take credit for the current peekaboo version, though. I probably won't be able to remember all the designs that I did back in those days, but the highlights include Designing the characters Quislet, Tellus, Karate Kid (Myg), Mentalla, and Sensor Girl and coming up with revised or new costumes for Polar Boy, Blok, Timber Wolf ... I was also happy to return some classic Dave Cockrum costume designs to the book. Dave did great costume designs for Collossal Boy and Wildfire, amongst others. During one of the frequent reboots I designed new costumes for Shadow Lass and Wildfire - but those are long gone now. I designed some new villains for the current Legion of Super-Heroes #8. Check those out and let me know what you think. Thanks, everyone, for the welcome.
I knew the Legion of Super-Heroes HAD to have a thread in here, somewhere! LOL
Great interview & it looks like the tempo will be increasing in "the far flung future!"
I think the Legion is at it's best when it really explores the socio-political tapestry of the United Planets, etc..
Watching Johns & then Levitz return the characters to the point of greatest concensus, and then moving forward onto a previously un-travelled road has been quite interesting, if sometimes a bit un-even.
I do think the Legionnaires are in need of a re-think, in terms of their costumes. Cockrum really turned the book into a modern property in the 70's, and although controversial, Giffen did the same in the late 80's.
Now that we're "back to basics," it's time to take a major step forward again.
The Legion needs to be the major draw it was in the 70's and early 80's, once again.
Civilly disobeying the law of gravity.
According to Levitz the 31st century Legionnaire's believe the Lost Legionnaires are dead. Not lost. Dead. I don't remember a funeral scene in LoSH. I don't see a golden statue
of Wildfire and the others in Legion HQ with Ferro Lad's and the rest. What I'm saying is, the loss of this many veteran Legionnaires should at least take a chunk of an issue to show some kind of U.P. sponsored hero's funeral, everybody attending, big to do. What do you think?
