The Legion of Super-Heroes, the popular teen super-team from the 30th century, has been missing in action since the early days of the New 52. Brought back into continuity by DC Rebirth and appearing in Doomsday Clock, they’ve now returned to their proper place as powerhouses in the DCU thanks to Brian Michael Bendis. Fresh off their appearance in Superman, DC Comics has provided GeekDad with a preview of the first issue, due out November 2019.
Below, you’ll find DC’s official preview text, a selection of covers, and the first six unlettered pages of Legion of Super-Heroes #1.
“This harkens back to the original ideals and concepts of The Legion, but The Legion has not existed in continuity of the DC universe as it stands today. This is a brand-new Legion of Super-Heroes.” –Brian Michael Bendis
