Featuring the likes of Krypto the Superdog, Streaky the Supercat, Beppo the Super-Monkey and Comet the Super-Horse, the team first appeared in Adventure Comics #293, removed from mainstream DC Comics continuity in 1986, returing in 2017 in Super Sons Annual #1 including Krypto, Titus, Streaky, and Bat-Cow, as well as introducing Flexi the Plastic Bird and Clay Critter. The Legion of Super-Pets (Beppo the Super Monkey, Streaky the Supercat and Krypto the Superdog) appeared in the DC Nation Superman 75th Anniversary short that was shown at New York Comic Con 2013 and was included in the Man of Steel DVD and Blu-Ray. In July 2018, Jared Stern had been hired by the studio to write and direct a CGI-animated film DC League of Super-Pets based on the team with Sam Levine as co-director and is to be released on the 20th of May 20, 2022. Dwayne Johnson had been cast as the voice of Krypto the Superdog, while Keanu Reeves, Kevin Hart and John Krasinski will voice other parts.

Batman Urban Legends #11 in January will be nicely in time for that, as well as being included in a possible DC Super Pets collection in May. Before then, the 1st of January will see Steve Korte and Art Baltazar launch a series of DC Super-Pets origin books:
