Animated Legion news 15: Lightning Lad, new logo

Thursday's Comics Continuum has the first look at a logo for the Legion series:

They've also got a short interview with Andy Milder, the voice of Lightning Lad, who says that his character will be the Legion field leader, and confirms that Superboy, Brainiac 5, Saturn Girl, Timber Wolf, Phantom Girl and Bouncing Boy will be in the show. No word yet on Cosmic Boy or XS, who were both seen only in previous concept drawings, but "other Legionnaires" will appear.
Lightning Lad, however -- this is a true honor. A founding member and, for my money, one of the coolest-powered heroes? Fantastic.

Meanwhile, Newsarama's Steve Fritz interviews Terry Kalagian of Cartoon Network. Or, as Miss Sara Scribbler notes, it's more "no information" than "disinformation":
Fritz then goes on to ask her about the oft-rumored Hellboy cartoon (which I think has a chance to be outstanding). Kalagian answers, "I'm not allowed to talk about it, not yet." Okay, folks, reality check here. This is Cartoon Network, not the Pentagon. And to make things worse, after Fritz mentions graphics he's seen on the net, she says she's aware of them but can only say how excited she is about it. And she does the same thing when Fritz asks her about Supergirl and the Legion of Superheroes and Doom Patrol. She says, "You know I can't say anything about it, Steve. You know it."

Now, bear in mind that this interview happened after CN's upfront presentation for the coming year, so there's really no reason I can see for her not to be a little less coy about these shows, all of which I'm going to guess we'll see on CN sooner or later.

This isn't the first time Fritz has referred to the show as Supergirl and the Legion (here's one from January), but he seems to be the only one doing so despite seeing the concept art with Superboy.
