Icons: Jim Lee and Paul Levitz on the Legion

Via the UK SF Book News page comes this press release quote:

"Now Titan Books is bringing together a spectacular collection of his work in a deluxe hardcover volume, Icons: The DC Comics and WildStorm Art of Jim Lee, (USD $39.95 / CAN $45.00 / £24.99, ISBN: 978-1845765194), available worldwide from October 2008.


"Lee's ascent through the ranks of comics stardom, both in art and in business, is charted in Icons: The DC Comics and WildStorm Art Of Jim Lee, as Titan Books lays out his rich, varied and astonishingly successful career through an array of beautiful work, bringing it right up to date with an all-new cover by Lee and an exclusive, all-new twelve-page comic strip, written by Paul Levitz (writer of Legion of Super-Heroes and President and Publisher of DC Comics)!

"Set to be one of the biggest titles of 2008, Titan will be launching Icons at San Diego Comic Con in July."

The Titans Books page goes further, promising an "an exclusive, all-new Legion of Superheroes twelve-page comic strip, written by Paul Levitz, with art by Lee!"

This is the story that Levitz mentioned at the end of this December 2007 interview. But the big question is where does it fit in, and which version of the Legion is it?

Was this New York Comic Con '06 panel the genesis of that Legion story?

That sounds interesting. Unfortunately it doesn't sound like forty-five simoleons worth of interesting.
