Well, Leader got about as much affection as I expected. Legion's story was kind of sad, but later they really leaned into him as a threat ... I think Legion going back in time and killing Professor X was what started the whole Age of Apocalypse alternate timeline.

I really can't wait (but I will) to hear the reaction of the ladies to the Leader's more recent "Jiffy Pop" look.

And it's a shame that Legion is/was not available to you all, because it was a great show. If you're into trippy visuals with complex storytelling and rich character development, I can't recommend it highly enough. The creator, Noah Hawley, is in theory making going to be making a new Star Trek movie, but we'll see if that actually comes to pass.

Also, to answer the question of "What does Spider-Man study at university?," I touch on that when I go through all of Peter Parker's jobs in this episode of my show. Short answer: Yes, Siskoid is right when he says "Science."
