Who are the LEGION and why are we so stoked about their return?
Many of you may be asking: OK, OK – so just WHY is the return of the LEGION such a big deal?
Well, we’re gonna tell ya, Third Eye Faithful, ’cause anytime we get an excuse to talk about one of the most innovative super-team / super-universe concepts around — we jump at it !
First introduced at the dawn of DC’s SILVER AGE in the pages of ADVENTURE COMICS with SUPERBOY – the Legion came into their own under creators like Paul Levitz (in the GREAT DARKNESS SAGA) and Keith Giffen, and delivered a huge cast of characters, with compelling powers, and a very interesting look at the future of the DC Universe.
One of the most interesting things about the Legion was always that they were one of the first DC Comics lines to have real life-or-death stakes; characters died — and stayed dead, and the overall arcs of the characters would change and evolve with time as things went on.
If you dig the slice-of-life real-world vibe of early ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN, or the tone of things like Geoff Johns’s JSA, early Bendis NEW AVENGERS, or creator-owned / creator-centric superhero books where anything can happen like Waid’s IRREDEEMABLE, Busiek’s ASTRO CITY, and Robert Kirkman’s INVINCIBLE — you’ll love the Legion.
