    Five stars … man, that’s pushing it. It’s perfectly fine, but basically you’re saying that this is perfect. I don’t know – that’s a tough standard. It’s not perfect, after all – Diana somehow gets fully dressed in about five seconds (yes, I know it’s nitpicking, but that’s what happens when you call something perfect). I haven’t sat down and reviewed them all yet, but it’s about as good as Batman, Birds of Prey, Blue Beetle, Legion of Super-Heroes, and Supergirl … and none of those are perfect. I’m glad you enjoyed it, though – I know you’ve been really anticipating it, and I know you would have been devastated if it didn’t live up to your personal hype!

    That was a terrific first issue of Wonder Woman. It was a terrific example of giving the reader just enough information to get them hooked.

    Regarding the Legion, they are easily the most mis-managed franchise in comics. They were something of a happy accident in the first place. It was a goofy, one-off Silver Age concept that grew legs. Various members of the Legion would visit various members of the 20th century Superman family. The cast sort just sprawled before anyone really conceived of it as a main feature. They are sort of like the X-Men that way: the group had a long history before most people cared.

    Unlike the X-Men, the writer who drove the creative prime of the title was also an influential executive within DC Comics. Paul Levitz had enough pull to indulge his worst instincts. That included holding the Legion apart from the ’86 Superman re-boot that re-wrote their continuity. That mistake put them in a seemingly endless cycle of their own re-boots.

    Amazingly, given the opportunity to correct that mistake, Levitz has chosen to make it again.
