I think that comics fans grow into SF fans, and from SF fans
come SF writers and (now) SF producers. Genre domino theory.

"When do I start writing <G>"

As soon as the restraining order expires.

Don't you hate what they've done with Legion lately...?

I think that the thing has gone downhill ever since they redid
them a few years ago. They've kind of gone back to the roots of the
book, but now it seems to be getting a bit silly, and the names of the
characters have gotten changed, and it's gotten dopey.

Ah, well...for me, Superman died with the Alan Moore two-parter
(now on sale as a graphic novel, "Whatever Happened to the Man of
Tomorrow?") That, for my money, was the best thing DC did with the
character in decades. I don't know who the new guy is....

I haven't done that much comics reading lately; I've been a fan
since the early 60s/late 50s, as soon as I learned how to read. Mainly
DC stuff. The market's gone to hell over the last year or two, so I've
kinda lost interest.
