The Election for ‘Legion of Super-Heroes’ Leader Begins Online

At some time after midnight yesterday morning, DC Comics put up the official website to revive a long-dormant Legion tradition: the fan election of the team leader. While it’s been a long time since this tradition’s been brought up, it appears that with the return of team-defining writer Paul Levitz, he’s brought this back with him. Of course, doing it via snail mail like in the old days would be pretty pointless, so it’s 2010 and that means we’re doing it on the internet. According to The Source, voting starts today and ends on November 10. But who’s up for the position?Frankly, who cares? The fact of the matter is, this is an election in which you can vote for Quislet. Quislet is an energy being from the dimension Teall who hijacked their spaceship and took it to the DC Universe. If you vote for Quislet, you are voting for the 31st-century equivalent of Skeets leading the Justice League.

If that doesn’t sound like the greatest thing ever to you, I really don’t know what to tell you.

That said, if you want to vote otherwise, the whole fun of this thing is that you get to make Paul Levitz write himself into a corner. Unlike mail-in Legion elections, there’s a finite list of contestants, so you can’t have a situation like Substitute Hero Polar Boy winning in Legion of Super-Heroes v3 #36.

That said: you can still vote for the little kleptomaniac spaceship to run the superclub of the 31st century inspired by the ideals of Superman. Come on, guys. COME ON.
