116. Kid Quantum

I’m drunk. And watching the return of Arrested Development. It’s not a crushing disappointment.

    I love Kid Quantum. Jazmin is one of the better Legionnaires to come out of the 90s. Unfortunately after ‘Archie Legion’ ended she got put on the shelf and never brought into the new versions of the Legion.

    Which really really sucks.

    Nice drawing. I think you really captured her.

    I enjoyed her in Legion Lost and the few subsequent Legion comics I read after that.

    I think I’ve seen you mention “Archie Legion” before, and I don’t know the reference. Is it an Archie Goodwin thing?

    When DC relaunched the Legion after Zero Hour Mark Waid deaged the cast considerably. Generally making the book heavy on teenage drama and comedy.

    So some older fans took to calling the Reboot Legion ‘The Archie Legion’ in reference to Archie and the Riverdale gang of Archie comics. Due to a combination of the new Teen angle, and the very clean linework that was used on the relaunch.

    So Reboot Legion = Archie Legion

    Followed by Mark Waid’s ‘Threeboot Legion’. Then Geoff Jones’s ‘Retroboot Legion’. And now Nu52 Legion.

    Which has been cancelled. X(

    During my research, I’ve seen references to Legion 1.5, Legion of Earth something or other, Adult Legion and the Threeboot. It’s all very confusing.

    Wait… are all these characters from a comic book or something?
