Mark your calendar for Sept. 23rd

According to Comics Continuum, the Legion show will debut on Saturday, Sept. 23, 2006.

Based on this weekend's Newsarama interview with James Tucker, it sounds as though the name of the show might be "Superman and the Legion of Super-Heroes". Someone even used that article as a basis to rename the show's page on Wikipedia.

Now, given that (a) the guy who wrote that article is Steve Fritz (no offense, Steve, if you read this!) who has at least twice in the past (see here and here) referred to the show as Supergirl and the Legion even after it was known to be Superboy, and (b) all promotional material - even from this past weekend - still refers to it as simply "Legion of Super-Heroes", I'm not so sure about this alleged renaming. I'll keep referring to it as "Legion" until I hear otherwise officially.

Update: The Wikipedia page was changed back within a couple hours. Apparently I'm not the only one who wants to wait to see if it's official.
