LAUREL GAND - Conventionless Convention Sketch

Laurel Gand © DC Comics

Another 5 Years Later Legionnaire for Michael. This time up is Laurel Gand. Laurel has gone through a few "make overs" just as the rest of the Legion has every time there is a big reboot/reimagine/rewhatever. But the quick background for her is she filled the void of Supergirl in the Legion after the Byrne Superman reboot wiped out the Superboy history. Which of course made the Superboy and the Legion history null and void. Laurel was always a fun character in every reboot. Thanks Michael!

Which brings a hypothetical question to my mind. If DC paid you a hefty sum to write and draw 12 issues of Legion, would you do your own reboot of the book in your vision or go the traditional approach?

Good question. I would stick to the original history of the team. Kinda like Paul Levitz is doing now. I did like the sw6 Legion that was introduced in the 5 Years Later run. That gave a chance to explore a Legion tha was young again. But I like the rich history and would stick to what's there.
