The new series for the Legion of Superheroes is now underway, and it’s gotten mixed reviews. Think you can do better?
Of course you can!
Now, everyone has their favorite Legionnaires and their own idea of what the legion should be about. So here’s the challenge, we want you to go to Twitter and send us your pitch for what, given editorial power, you would do with the legion. The catch? It’s gotta be 280 characters or less.
Pitch us your concept for The Legion of Superheroes in two tweets. The first one should detail which characters you’d use, the second is a short pitch for the story line. Tag them with #legionpitch and you’re good to go!
Here’s an example:
Tweet 1: #legionpitch Saturn Girl, Triplicate Girl, Shadow Lass, Projectra, Telus, Gates and Quizlett
Tweet 2: #legionpitch A spacefaring team of sexy girls and monsters travels the galaxy providing aid and curing diseases, Doctors Without Orbits!
The top five will be selected by Major Spoilers Staff. Then the winner will be decided by popular vote. The winners get something cool from the Major Spoilers stash and an illustration of four of your Legion of Super-Heroes characters by Kristen and Adriana of Super Future Friends fame.
Rules: This contest is open to anyone in the world.
UPDATE: Besides the massive number of Fail Whales Twitter has been experiencing lately, the company has also lost, or is not keeping an archive of their trending tags like they should.
Sadly, all of the original entries have been lost.
But Fear Not Spoilerites! We’re committed to giving away prizes to someone! Instead of using Twitter, use the comment section below to post (or re-post) your Legion Pitches. Keep them both in the same comment, and be sure you keep them to 280 characters.
We’ll give you until August 20th, with the short list announced September 1, 2010 for the mass audience to vote on!
Well? Get to it!
