Thanks to T. Troy McNemar who originated the Legion Chat Reports; so much
of the format of these writeups was derived from his hard work.
DISCLAIMER: I can't guarantee the reliability of this report. Essentially,
the Legion chats involve about twenty-five fans shouting repeated questions
to the creators. The creators are sometimes unable to answer questions
thoroughly or clarify their responses. As a result, misinterpretations may
occur on my part.

Jeff will be appearing at an Indianapolis con on June 7th.
Ron has just finished inking LSH #108, his final issue. His other book
ADVENTURES IN THE DCU is "unofficially" cancelled. He's also doing an
issue of Marvel's WHAT IF? #113.
There are no plans for Ferro to change his costume.
Inferno was supposed to join Young Justice, but plans for that have been
Tom thought that Jeff should draw Sensor's tongue more, so the "tongue
count" would be increased. Tom joked that it's important that Sensor smell
According to Tom, Brainy is now known as "Brainiac 5.1". The name that
Gates jokingly coined has stuck. Some of the changes wrought by the
anomaly were written in for a reason, while others weren't.
Umbra might be able to manipulate her shadow "puppets" (as seen in L* #62)
effectively enough to scare her opponents.
With last weekend's Motor City con, Jeff has started distributing
convention prints with some female Legion cast members. Nura is depicted
with the Adam Hughes-designed costume she wore in the "End of an Era" story
pre-ZERO HOUR. However, she won't be joining the team; Jeff drew her like
that to mess with our heads.
After an appearance in POWER OF SHAZAM!, Thunder will join the Legion cast
with LSH #110. Eventually, she will become a Legionnaire.
The books will soon address whether Lori will join the Legion.
