C2E2 10

This year's C2E2 in Chicago has ended. Here's what you missed from a Legion-centric perspective:

Via Newsarama:

DC Icons panel

Is Linda Danvers/Matrix Supergirl ever going to come back? DiDio: "Don't look at me, I just work here." DiDio says we will not be seeing her again.

The fan then asks about the multiple Legion of Superheroes, and why we can't have multiple Supergirls. DiDio says the current forward direction is Supergirl as Superman's cousin.

Is there a chance for an ongoing Lex Luthor or the Legion of Supervillains series? Berganza: "There's always possibilities." DiDio says the book where the villains are the lead are tough to sustain: They either fight villains and become kind of heroes, fight heroes and lose, or fight heroes and win and start killing off your stable.
DC Nation panel

DiDio says that Adventure Comics might be more of a showcase book, moving ahead, but he hopes Brightest Day will help other characters support their own series.

I don't think CBR covered the DC Icons panel, but here's what came out of their coverage of the DC Nation panel:

DiDio said "Adventure Comics" will likely become a "Showcase"-style book, responding to a question about the "Brightest Day" characters unlikely to support their own series at this point.

Flight rings on eBay

I am not associated with this ebay auction in any way, shape, or form. That said, someone is selling replica Legion flight rings on ebay if you're interested.

This isn't the original gold-plated DC Direct version but a homemade version that, from the ad, is available in all sizes from 4-15 (US). Cost is $55 ($40 for the ring, $15 for shipping from Israel).

If you do get one, let me know how it works out!

Emerald City Comic Con 2011

Seattle's Emerald City Comic Con was last weekend. Couldn't find much in the news, but here's what I did find:

DC Universe panel, via CBR:

A reader dissatisfied with the gaps left in Paul Levitz's "Legion of Superheroes" history was promised that "Paul has major plans for the book and will be filling those gaps" beginning in late summer/fall.
But seriously, unnamed fan, the book hasn't even been out a year, did you want the new book to pick up from the end of the Magic Wars right away?  

CBR's coverage of the DC Nation panel didn't say anything, and couldn't find anything from Newsarama.

Next weekend: C2E2 in Chicago.
