I enjoyed the animated Legion of Super-Heroes series for what it was, a cartoon geared at younger viewers. It handled the large cast well and introduced viewers to a side of the DCU that was only hinted at on other shows. What I would really like to see, however, is the Legion in one of DC's direct to video animated movies. The Great Darkness Saga would be a cool story to adapt in that format. DC's animated movies are great, but they seem to be in a cycle of Batman - Superman - JLA stories, which are I guess more guaranteed sales. Hopefully they will venture out into more of their properties and we can see a true animated LSH epic one of these days.
