I'll be there, though I've no idea what panels I'll be attending.

What did Wil Wheaton do with the Legion?

Michael said...

Wil was the voice of Cosmic Boy on the animated series a couple years ago.

Paul Newell said...

Heh. Didn't know that. Guess I didn't pay attention to who did the voices much. :)

FYI, the Legion Flight Ring question was asked twice at the DC Nation panel; Ian Sattler basically fobbed off the question with it being a possibility.

Also, Geoff Johns was asked about the GL ring on the cover of the new LSH #1 in the GL panel. He said he'd been working closely with Paul Levitz, but this story is all Paul.

If there was any more said regarding the Legion, I can't remember. Didn't take notes, sorry!

I was the one who asked about the Flight Ring the first time. As was said, they didn't say much: I was left with the impression it was a genuine possibility but it definitely wasn't in the plans at the moment. I totally forgot to ask about the postcards, though. (I did get a donut and a Red Lantern Ring for my troubles, though.)

Something from the "Superman Goes to War" panel on Sunday: after the "War of the Supermen" story ends, Johns (I think, wasn't taking notes) revealed that Adventure Comics would be featuring "Superboy and the Legion of Super-heroes," by Paul Levitz (no word on the art team). With Clark Kent as Superboy! It wasn't clear if he was just referring to the "Secret Origins" series or not, but he said they would be stories of the early Legion.
