DC-Ember #100: Legion Of Super Heroes


Legion of Super Heroes is an American animated television series produced by Warner Bros. Animation that debuted on September 23, 2006, and is based on characters owned by DC Comics. The series centers on a young Superman’s adventures in the 31st century, fighting alongside a group of futuristic superheroes known as the Legion of Super-Heroes. The show was produced by its main designer James Tucker, a co-producer of the Justice League Unlimited series, for the Kids’ WB line on The CW network.

The series drew on the rich history of the Legion of Super-Heroes, taking inspiration from stories set during all time periods of the team’s nearly 50-year history in comics. Continuity is internally consistent but is not shared with any previous incarnation of the Legion, either animated or in print. The series was cancelled after its second season.

Imagine Teen Titans done with Superman at the lead instead of Robin at the lead then you’d pretty much have this series.

The animation is very similar in tone with Teen Titans and overall, the entire series is essentially just that, it’s more in the spirit of a mix of Teen Titans with Justice League, there’s not as many comedic aspects in this series as there were in Teen Titans and many of the main characters don’t appear in every episode, much like in Justice League.

The whole series, as a whole, is just kind of meh. There’s nothing really interesting or exciting about it that puts it on that level of Justice League or Teen Titans but there’s nothing about that’s offensively bad or anything, it’s just kind of run of the mill. You never really get invested in the stories going on or the action that happens and the overall feeling is just that it’s mediocre at best.

This is definitely a series you might want to skip out on.
