Notes

  • With a few exceptions, the designs for this series are heavily based on the early Adventure Comics Legion designs, including the costumes for the Legionnaires themselves.
  • The designs would later be reused for the young Legion/Fatal Five cameo in Justice League: Another Nail #3, also drawn by Davis (although the adult Ultra Boy therein is based on the post-Zero Hour Ultra Boy design).

Expanded solicit/Feature article

SUPERBOY'S LEGION

A rocketship blasts away from an exploding planet just in time. Inside the ship, the last survivor of an entire civilization sleeps. His destination: 20th-century Earth. Only the Kryptonian ship veers off-course, enduring a thousand-year journey into the 30th century, where it ends up being discovered by billionaire industrialist R.J. Brande.

The story of the Last Son of Krypton takes a different, yet somehow familiar twist in SUPERBOY'S LEGION, a 2-issue Elseworlds miniseries in the Prestige Format from the JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA: THE NAIL creative team of writer/inker Mark Farmer and penciller Alan Davis (The Avengers). Brande's now adopted son, "Kal," grows up an impetuous teenager with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men. Alone and without purpose, Kal is regarded by many as a childish boy who dreams about the super-heroes who protected Earth a millennium ago. But certain events prompt young Kal to turn those dreams into reality, as he decides to find other unique teens like himself and form a Legion of Super-Heroes! Unfortunately, their first mission may turn into a nightmare for the young group of heroes, as unseen forces enter the equation and look to strengthen their grip on a universe they already control!

SUPERBOY'S LEGION is supported with house and trade ads.

SUPERBOY'S LEGION is a 2-issue Elseworlds miniseries in the Prestige Format, edited by Mike McAvennie. The 48-page issue #1 arrives in comic-book stores February 21 with a cover price of $5.95 U.S.
