Animated LSH news 61: Cham updates

From the March 7 Comics Continuum:

Veteran comics and television writer J.M. DeMatteis told The Continuum he's working on his second script for the second season of Kids' WB!'s Legion of Super Heroes.

"There's a lot going on in this one," DeMatteis told The Continuum at last weekend's Wonder Con. "Chameleon Boy's a main character in the story."

DeMatteis' first script centered on Timber Wolf.

In other Legion Season 2 news, look for Matter-Eater Lad, Ron-Karr, Tyr, Mano, Esper, Emerald Empress and Persuader to appear early in the season.

So that means the Fatal Five and the Light Speed Vanguard. However.... J. M. DeMatteis script, starring Chameleon Boy... If he says that Dream Girl is going to be in that episode too, then that means Karate Kid should be lurking around as well. And I'd be scared. One thing we DON'T want to see is an adaptation of this:

I don't know about you, but I think kids would get a kick out of Dr. Mayavale. At least he'd be better than that Mxy rip-off we got in "Child's Play".

Heh. Back on the old LegionMUSH, I ran a plot that brought Dr. Mayavale back, pitting representatives of various worlds against each other to determine the karmic futures of each planet.

Thanks for the link! Those DCAU animators have successfully revived some pretty bizarre characters, especially in Teen Titans (Mad Mod and Ding Dong Daddy come to mind). I'll bet they could find a way to make Mayavale cool and fun.
