I watched the new Legion of Super Heroes cartoon, and I enjoyed it.
I would have liked it better if
- They’d called him Superboy, since it was clearly that point in Clark’s life. And they weren’t creating a time loop by turning him into Superman because they already knew he was.
- Saturn Girl didn’t have a giraffe neck, freaky cat eyes, and drag queen eyebrows.
- Brainiac 5 wasn’t so clearly a Beast Boy knock-off. And a robot.
- Triplicate Girl was called Triad. But the design, especially her side-parted bob, was cool. She’s my favorite character, because they made her really competent and attractive.
We enjoyed recognizing the tiny Booster Gold and Skeets cameo, the diamond-shaped alien (like that Green Lantern), and the Interlac. I liked the episode of Justice League Unlimited guest starring the LSH better, since I think Supergirl is a better match for the team than Super
boy, but I have hope for this.
Here’s some old fans talking about what they like about it. The Legion Omnicom blog has a lot more links, of course.
