BENDIS IS PENNING THE JUSTICE LEAGUE VS LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES MINI-SERIES

Recently, DC Comics chose superstar writer and artist Brian Bendis to develop the Legion of Super-Heroes TV show for HBO Max. Really, the writer was elated. Since Dark Nights: Death Metal, DC Comics has rebooted its entire line of comics with Infinite Frontier.

Since then, the Legion has been enjoying a revival. This year, the new Justice League vs Legion of Super-Heroes mini-series debuted. From Infinite Frontier, it continues Darkseid‘s quest for The Great Darkness. Moreover, an homage to the classic Legion story arc called The Great Darkness with Darkseid at its villain.

“HBO Max has put me to work on a LEGION OF SUPERHEROES TV SHOW,” Bendis revealed. “At the moment it is being developed as an adult animated show.  Can you tell I am jumping up and down about this? I’ve been working on it for a while and last week I was sent to the next phase.”

WHY THE LEGION IS THE FUTURE OF DC COMICS

IT RESTORES THE SILVER AGE ADVENTURES OF SUPERBOY WITH THE LEGION

In Superman (2019) #14, Superboy officially joins the Legion of Super-Heroes. With Rogol Zaar, destroying the Kryptonian houses and the galaxy on the brink of war, Superboy presents a powerful agreement. When the Kryptonians arrive, they tell the factions to cease hostilities. Courageously, Jon Kent tells them that Earth has a system called the United Nations to arbitrate conflicts.

Similarly, they could set up the United Planets. Suddenly, a blue light forms and the Legion appear for the first time since Rebirth. Solemnly, they ask the creator of the United Planets to join the Legion. Previously, we presented a rumor where Superman would become the ambassador of the League of Planets. Here, it is Superboy who eventually joins the Legion of Super-Heroes. Really, this restores the Silver Age Superboy adventures with the Legion.

THE 31ST CENTURY IS SUPERMAN’S LEGACY

Certainly, the DC Universe: Rebirth is about legacies, families and traditions. What makes the Legion of Super-Heroes important is because the super-team was formed as a result of Superman’s heroism. In fact, the 31st century has played a determinant role in DC’s major events. Perhaps, from DC One Million, Jon Kent is Superman Secundus

Moreover, Jon becomes Superman after his father leaves for space to fight on Warworld. In Final Crisis, Superman ends up in the 31st century where Brainiac 5 shows him the Miracle Machine. In a few moments, Superman memorizes it in order to re-build it in the 21st century. Later, it is used to restore the DC multiverse. In the end, Superman and the heroes inspire the formation of a utopia on Earth.
