Wildfire (With a Side-Order of Tyroc)

"Wildfire (With a Side-Order of Tyroc)" from Legion Lost vol.2 #4 (DC, 2012) by Fabian Nicieza and Pete Woods
Despite my Legion loyalty (no really, I once read the Legion Constitution over and over so imagining I joined the team was as realistic as possible), I didn't stick with Legion Lost very long. It had some generally nice art and designs, and I like the Legionnaires that were this time Lost (always been a big fan of Wildfire & Dawnstar, and Tyroc has always been an underused Legionnaire), but having them hang around in the present is a lot less interesting than having them be on the move. (When the book was announced, it was thought they might bounce around the multiverse à la Marvel's Exiles; alas...) Anyway, as soon as it started crossing over with crap titles like Teen Titans and Ravagers, I was OUT OF THERE.

  1. I didn't rate it much either...the main premise of them hunting Alastor was soon lost amongst a miasma of sick Legionnaires, and a plot involving a secret Government conspiracy. Also why didn't the Lost contact the modern-day heroes for help?
    It only complicated things when DeFalco joined as writer - he filled the book with Teen Titans and more conspiracy-based storylines, plus dialogue that can only be described as 'turgid'.
