Last month, Jim delivered a good story but the fill-in artist was a good match for it. This month sees the return of Francis Manapul. The hard part this month is seeing George Perez on Legion of Three Worlds then seeing the regular artist on this book.
But, inthe Five Years Later run radically re-invented the team in a way that fans hated. First created in the s by writer Otto Binder and artist Al Plastino, the Legion of Super-Heroes were characters essentially created so Superboy could have superpowered friends. The team grew to become something like a university for superpowered teenagers from all over the galaxy, working out of big splashy headquarters under the auspices of the United Planets and trusted by 31st Century Science Police.
The story is a follow-up to Johns' Lightning Saga arc, which reintroduced the original Legion of Super-Heroes to mainstream continuity. In the future, two scientists on a dying planet send their son to Earth so he can grow up to be like Superman. The child is found by two farmers in Smallvillewho dutifully murder it with a shotgun.
Today at ComicsAlliance, David Uzumeri and I are back with four more favorite Legionnaires, plus a few of their villains too! Today at ComicsAlliance, David Uzumeri and I bring you the first of two articles where we discuss the best and most obscure characters from the Legion of Super-Heroes in preparation for the new series that starts tomorrow! Keep in mind that trans-temporal calls may be monitored by the Linear Men for continuity assurance, and that Cosmic Treadmill delivery is only available Monday through Saturday.
I think we exchanged a couple of emails at the start of the project and that was it. My editors made a decision to funnel information to me from Jim. It was a decision made with the best of intentions.
Dawnstar is a fictional superheroine in comic books published by DC Comics. She was created by Paul Levitz and Mike Grell. Dawnstar her real name, she has no Legion code name is from the planet Starhavena world colonized by American Indians abducted from Earth by an unknown alien race in the 13th Century. Her name is derived from the appearance on Earth of the planet Venusthe "morning star", and which is the reason she wears an eight-pointed star ornament on her forehead.
It also had its own Legion of Super Heroes animated series. The book is about attractive somethings who seem to hook up all the time. As a result, it had a large female fanbase, which, I cannot stress enough, is incredibly unusual for this era in comics history.
Ran for two seasons,abruptly ending with a hook for the third season that never came. When the series opens, the 31st-century Legion is hopelessly outclassed by the famed Fatal Five. They resolve to recruit the near-mythical Superman from the past, but for undisclosed reasons, Brainiac 5 brings them to Smallville, not Metropolis. There they invite year-old Clark Kent to help them in The Futurepromising that with Time Travelhe can return the minute he left.
