I believe you are talking about the current Legion, as reintroduced by Geoff Johns and later Paul Levitz? Well I will give it a go...
Well current as of Pre-New 52 I guess is what I'm inquiring about. Not current current as I think with New 52 some wrinkles were added.
Quote:Well Giffen and the Bierbaums plugged that hole by introducing Laurel Gand, in the Levitz/LaRoque series however the question was left tantalisingly vague as as late as Legion #25 there is the running plot that has Brainiac 5 suspecting Sensor Girl to be a disguised Supergirl, who has somehow survived her historical death. We are later shown that Supergirl has a commemorative statue along with the other deceased Legionairres - see LSH #31 & 38. Both issues were published with the new Superman relaunch well underway so the suggestion may be that in Levitz' mind Supergirl was... what? From the Pocket-universe history? Or a seperate time-Paradox perhaps?
So presumably Supergirl never died in the crisis in the Johns version of the Legion? Or was she just never a part of the Legion? Or did she die and come back from the dead.
Really unsure where she fits in.
Quote:"Take it as you will" was the message.
Quote:That's all correct. In the short Adventure Comics series that featured Kal-el/Superboy and the Legion(circa 2009) Levitz did seem to be suggesting though that young Clark followed a very similar path the the Pre-Crisis and therefore much or all of those historical Legion stories could/did happen as you remember them. More or less.
Right but a lot of the events between LOSH v3 #37 and 63 are um...different now I guess. Or going back even further with Supergirl and the Crisis maybe.
Their relationship was actually suggested back in the Levitz/LaRoque years, around #22 as I remember it, and it quietly developed from there until Giffen and the Bierbaum's made it fully explicit. And Yes Levitz made it very clear that the two were still a couple as he took control of the 2011 series - an early filler issue with Walt Simonson as guest artist comes to mind as one example of a nice scene between the two.
I kind of wish they would just say Ayla is Bi.
Thanks for all the details.
