Back Blurb


The broad strokes of the Legion's origins are well known --- a superhero team formed in the 30th and 31st centuries to defend planetary colonies --- but what are the secret machinations that went on behind the scenes? Why was the organization known as the United Planted formed? What great power could leave entire planets desolate and lifeless? Cosmic Boy, Saturn Girl and Lightning Lad may have founded the legion, but the story starts here!

In the 31st century, three teens from different worlds act to save prominent businessman R.J. Brande from assassination, while the battle to save the border worlds of the United Planets from an unknown alien threat rages on. It's a trial by fire for the newly formed Legion as work continues on an experimental starship that could turn the tide of the war. While attempting to seek help from the century of Super Heroes, they find themselves locked out of time and discover a clue to who is behind the forces terrorizing their homes.

Discover the legendary crew's roots in LEGION SECRET ORIGIN --- collecting the miniseries --- and featuring the work of famed scribe PAUL LEVITZ (WORLD'S FINEST) and the art of CHRIS BATISTA (Thunderbolts) and MARC DEERING (SUPERGIRL).
