The Rumoured Return Of The Legion Of Super-Heroes…

Baltimore seemed to definitely kick it off.


The DC Universe Rebirth #1 comic by Geoff Johns and Gary Frank featured what appeared to be the return of the Legion Of Super-Heroes characters – or one of them at least.

Saturn Girl Rebirth 2 At Baltimore, during the DC Rebirth panel, we were told that when Legion of Super-Heroes would return, one of the writers on the panel could be writing it.


That's a choice of Dan DiDio, Tom King,  Hope LarsonJames Tynion IV,  Paul Levitz,  Keith GiffenDan Jurgens and Yannick Paquette.

Paul Levitz has of course lived and breathed Legion his life. Keith Giffen, half his life. But there's also rumours of Tom King stepping up – who used a Legion character in his original Omega Men pitch.

But to add to all this is the new rumour we've been hearing that Jim Lee has itchy feet, is late on Suicide Squad and might be well up for launching a new Legion Of Super-Heroes.


How long till New York Comic Con again?
