Wizard World LA '08 - day 2: The DnA Legion returns?

Day 2 of WWLA08 had the "Countdown to Crisis" panel. Hints of new trades and the possible return of the Post-Zero Hour Legion?

Via CBR:

"With the Legion of Super-Heroes in 'Action Comics' - are we going to see them more?" asked a fan. DiDio explained that the Legion will be celebrated in a lot of ways, as it's the 50th anniversary of the team.

More Levitz "Legion of Super-Heroes" trades? "Yes."

Via Newsarama:
A fan asked about the Legion, and DiDio reminded that it's the 50th anniversary of the characters, and they have significant plans for them. "I really liked the 'Legion Lost' era," commented the fan. "Come back and see me in a month," DiDio said.

The WizardWorld coverage doesn't have any of the above info.

Honestly,... I don't care any more. It won't be the DnA Legion if "they" show up, it'll be some screwed over softbooted superficially similar version.

I'm getting confused at all of the iterations of the Legion that are showing up this year. It's hard enough to keep the current continuity straight in my head without all of these alternate versions showing up!

We've got the pre-Crisis Legion appearing in Action Comics, DiDio hinting that the DnA Legion may return, Giffen suggesting that his upcoming DC/Wildstorm crossover will feature the Legion, but in a way no one would expect (a version of the Legion from the future of the Wildstorm Earth, perhaps?) and the main Legion title featuring the (apparent) current version.

That's a lotta Legions. But don't get me wrong, I still think it's a blast, and I'm thrilled the Legion is getting so much attention at the moment.
