The Legion of Super-Heroes is 30th Century's premier super-team.


The Legion was born when Cosmic Boy, Saturn Girl and Lightning Lad saved the live of rich entrepreneur R.J. Brande, who encouraged them to work together to protect the galaxy like their 20th Century predecessors Superboy and Supergirl had done. Over time, the Legion's ranks would grow and the Legionnaires would even travel back to the past to recruit their role models.

The Legion would go back to the 20th century for the last time when Superman was about to fight his last battle. The Legionnaires were aware that they couldn't change the past, but they were able to let their friend see his cousin for the last time and give him a subtle hint to defeat his ultimate enemy disguised as a last gift.





The Legion of Super-Heroes was created by Otto Binder and Al Plastino in Adventure Comics #247, but this version of the team was created by Alan Moore and Curt Swan.
