by Clyde Hall. “This hearkens back to the original ideals and concepts of The Legion, but The Legion has not existed in continuity of the DC universe as it stands today. This is a brand-new Legion of Super-Heroes.” – Brian Michael Bendis
Down through the ages, we’ve sung their praises. 1959 -1962: “Where’s Cosmic Boy’s helmet? Lightning Boy’s now a Lad?” 1972 -1973: “Who’s Dave Cockrum? What happened to their uniforms? What’s an ERG?” 1989: “It’s five years later? Giffen’s writing?” 1993: “So now they’re younger clones?” 2004: “What’s a ‘Threeboot’?” 2008: “Legion of 3 Worlds?! I’m so confused. I tapped out two Crises ago…” 2015: “Disbanded?!!”
Not always praises. Legion of Super-Heroes fans have weathered cosmic tsunamis of change with their futuristic champions. Dust off those promotional premium flight rings and get ready for a whole new LSH era.
Brian Michael Bendis and Ryan Sook are creating the greatest jumping-on point in recent comics memory with Legion of Super-Heroes #1, in stores November 6. It’s a fresh start for the Legion in an all-new continuity. There will be changes, but some of the best LSH runs began on such notes of renewed energy and passion. Look at the unlettered preview pages courtesy of DC below and drink in the familiar alongside the variation. For Super Sons fans, Jon Kent officially becomes the Superboy for this new era of the Legion—a guide we can trust in this, DC’s brave new 31st Century of adventure.
