    Man, he was 14 when he got the gig way back when. That's a dream job

    Nope, but he was black listed for a long time

    Francis Manapul and now Jim Shooter?

    If that doesn't get some of you people to buy Legion, I don't know what will.

    So apparently there was a webpage up for a little bit that had Legionnaire profiles, as written by Jim Shooter, that has recently been taken down. This one focusing on Dream Girl is both hilarious and disturbing. It's hilaristurbing!
    Dream Girl is dumb. Her power is more or less hit or miss in value (though it is always accurate) and I'm sure her main service to the Legion is in her quarters after dark. She needs constant reassurance of her value, and since her Legion career has been less than stellar, the only way to get psychologically stroked is to allow herself to be physically stroked. By anybody. She has a need for love, adoration and reinforcement of her narcissistic self-image. Star Boy is either too dumb to realize this, or has resigned himself to it. His most fervent wish is to get her off to some godforsaken observatory somewhere, alone. Forever.

    I love Jim Shooter. Google some interviews with him sometime. It really sounds like he was blacklisted essentially for thinking superhero comics should be produced for a wide audience instead of die-hard fans, and for wanting his creators to produce work consistently from month to month. They booted his ass out and now we have bestselling titles at what would have been cancellation levels in 1990, and six issue series that take three years to come out. Good job, comics. Good job.
