    My friend read classic Pre-Crisis Legion all the way through the ZH run. He really enjoyed the Giffen 5YL stuff and I didn't get into it at the time. Recently I was looking for some references and I wound up downloading a bunch of the 5YL stuff and I actually find it to be a really neat book. Of course it destroys the Legion, but it works as almost a Vertigo/Elseworlds version. It had a lot of style, not that everyone would enjoy it.

    The ZH Legion was okay. I didn't have a problem with the art. My friend who had enjoyed the Pre-C and the 5YL both said that the ZH art sucked and kind of put him off the book, and I never understood why. I liked it just fine. He was disappointed with the stories, I think because he thought with a reboot they could go in different directions but they just wound up repeating a lot of classic stories (his words).

    I never followed any version of the Legion really, until the post-Legion Lost book called The Legion. I thought it was a decent run with decent art.

I was fine with the post Zero Hour Legion reboot until the 2 ongoing series ended. Legion Lost and everything after I didn't like.

    Then the Threeboot happened and I didn't really like it at all. The Legion are now just a bunch of whiny millennials who only become heroes because they're bored and they constantly argue with any other authoritative body not because they wrong but simply because they're grown-ups and grown-ups are always bad.
