[Legion Fan Club] and other interested parties, this month we are compelled to leap to the very very edge of Legion material digitized in our beloved DC Universe Library. Therefore, and without further adieu, we present:
THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES CIRCA 2019!!!
Yes, as our virtual DC literary exploration ships approach the vast waterfall known as DC Universe Infinite January 2021, wherein we all are thrust 6 months forward in comic book time, drowning us all in a flooded abyss of suddenly-available comic books we’ll never ever find the time to fully enjoy, today we venture our ship into the most recent Legion waters, antediluvian you could say, you could say….
SUPERMAN (2018-) #14 Click for Superman (2016) 14 A final confrontation between Superman’s family, the House of El, and the monster who destroyed Krypton, Rogol Zaar leads to unexpected revelations about the destruction of Krypton, while also becoming the foundation for alliances that’ll stretch to the 31st Century.
SUPERMAN (2018-) #15 Click for Superman (2016) 15 At last, it’s the return of the Legion of Super-Heroes! The greatest super heroes of the 32nd century have traveled back in time not just to meet the heroes who inspired them, but to make an offer…but to which hero?
SUPERMAN (2018-) #16 Click for Superman (2016) 16 The Super Sons are back! But now Jon is five years older, and he’s sitting on the biggest decision of his young life.
LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES: MILLENNIUM (2019-) #2 Click for LoSH MILLENNIUM 2 A gallery of all-star artists join our mysterious guide as they continue their 1,000-year journey toward the 31st century, inspiring Booster Gold to time-travel, debating fighting tactics with O.M.A.C. and making their way to the front door of the Legion of Super-Heroes.
Questions to consider:
How big a fan are you of “older” Jon / Superboy?
Where does this version of Legion fall for you in the range of ages of Legion we have looked at before? Are they like the very young Legionnaires , the middle aged not quite married Levitz / Giffen Legion version of the early to mid-1980s, or like the older “5 years later” all grown up Giffen version of Legion?
At this introductory point in discovering Bendis’ version of Legion, what seems very different about them compared to previous versions if anything?
Which of the DC time periods / worlds from Millenium do you wish DC would run a series concerning or continue to run? President Supergirl? Tommy Tomorrow? Etc
Next month, we move to a “Quadruple Decker” Dagwood Sandwich approach to Legion reads!!!
