Long Read: A Great Big Doomsday Clock DC Comics Conspiracy Theory

Long Read: A Great Big Doomsday Clock/DC Comics Conspiracy Theory

Bleeding Cool has run a number of articles looking at the relationship of Doomsday Clock to the rest of the DC Universe – and now The Three Jokers too. Seeing that what once was clearly intended to be the tightest of structured continuity, fall apart as a result of delays, personnel changes and internal political […]

More Flip-Flopping by DC Comics Over the Legion Of Super-Heroes?

Earlier this week, Bleeding Cool posted a piece that suggested that the pulping of Superman #14 and Supergirl #33 may have been down to a differing ethnic portrayal of Lightning Lad than intended. It was speculation based on an initial tip, and then seeing some of the pages from the published comic books before they […]

The Legion Of Super-Heroes Preview That Didn't Appear In Today's DC Comics

The reasons for the recall and demanded destruction of the first Printings of Superman #14 and Supergirl #33 are still very unclear. Bleeding Cool ran a theory, nothing more, that it could have been down to the portrayed ethnic identity of the new Lightning Lad being different to that seen in previews and promotional artwork […]

Jim Lee Will Draw Brian Bendis' First Legion Of Super-Heroes Story: Millennium

DC Comics publishers Dan DiDio and Jim Lee, along with new creative hire Joe Hill, have been talking about the plans of DC Comics today at San Diego Comic-Con.

"Legion" Season 3, Episode 4: "Chapter 23" Time Demons Say Hey

"Legion" Season 3, Episode 4: "Chapter 23" Time Demons Say Hey

Legion has never been a show that I would call reserved. Nothing about that show, from the first episode forward, has been anything less than a full-tilt assault on the senses. Even episode 22, which introduced Charles Xavier (Harry Lloyd) and Gabrielle Haller (Stephanie Corneliussen ) in a relatively bug-out free excursion, still managed to […]

"Legion" Cast Discuss Tragic Young Xavier Back-Story

"Legion" Cast Discuss Tragic Young Xavier Back-Story (SPOILERS)

"Chapter 22", the, well, 22nd episode of Legion on FX, largely forewent the psychedelic pomp and circumstance of David Haller (Dan Stevens) and his Merry Pranksters, instead diverting the story back in time some 30 years to the beginning, courtship, and tragic unraveling of the relationship between Charles Xavier, played wonderfully by Harry Lloyd, and […]

"Legion" Season 3, Episode 3: Meet the Xaviers in "Chapter 22"

For the second time in three episodes, Legion doesn't show a single established character for a good chunk of the show's established run-time. Well, we see David (Dan Stevens). But it's Baby David. Happy Baby David, before The Shadow King set up shop and shattered a happy home. Well, maybe a happy home. We meet […]

"Blithe Spirit" Shoots with Dan Stevens & Judi Dench

"Legion" Producers Talk Time Travel and a Certain Professor

Legion is currently a couple of episodes into its third and final season, with the third episode airing tonight on FX. If you think Legion is any more coherent or gentle on the ole' thinky bits this year, you would be horribly, terribly wrong. A lot of shows have, for lack of better words, an […]

"Legion" S03, Ep01: "Chapter 21"

"Legion" S03, Ep01: "Chapter 21"

The last thing we saw on Legion was Syd (Rachel Keller) and her crew of creepy soldiers sneaking up on David (Dan Stevens) and his crew of creepy followers. Syd had killed David several times already, but a pesky mutant with time traveling abilities managed to warn him this third time around. David and his […]

"Legion" "Chapter 21": Get Ready for More Weird (PREVIEW)

If you didn't catch the first episode of this season of Legion, you might want to go back and catch up. Legion doesn't really care if you know what's going on– there is a story to tell, Noah Hawley knows exactly what that story is, and if you're not ready, that's on you. We've been […]
