Get the Complete Three Voumes (The First Season)
Lou Cole | 05/23/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I got these three volumes when they came out seperately. I got copies for my young nephew. Not only are the cartoon episodes from the first season of the Warner Brothers Saturday morning catoon series "The Legion of Superheroes" entertaining for general audience, but they are great to introduce young kids to the "Legion of Superheroes."

The cartoon series is based on a long running comic book series (about 50 years) from DC Comics.

The series was a spin-of from a "Superboy" story tht appeared in "Adventure Comics" about 50 years ago. Three teenage superheroes (Cosmic Boy, Lightening Lad, and Saturn Girl) from Metropolis, one thousand years in the future come to Smallville in a time bubble (a time machine) to visit and meet their idol and role model from one thousand years ago, Superboy. These are the three original members of the Legion of Superheroes.

As well as the "Superboy" series running in its own title, it was also, at the time, running in "Adventure Comics." It was decided a number of issues later to spin-off the "Legion of Superheroes" into their own series in which Superboy takes up their invitation to come visit them in Metropolis, one thousand years in the future. The three members make Superboy an official member of the Legion. In the following stories, the membership would continue to grow.

The pilot cartoon episode is a reworked and updated account of when young Clark Kent meets the Legion of Superheroes who go into the pas the past to try to find and enlist the help of Superman in Metropolis, but end up accidentally in Smallville a number of years earlier before young Clark Kent before beginning his career as Superman and has fully discovered and mastered the use of all his super-powers.

The Legion of Superheroes can be looked at as being a combination of the superhero genere and the science fiction genere. Or you may look at it as a young Superman (or a Superboy)teamd with other teenage superheroes combined with "Star Wars." This all definitely adds to fun and entertainment.

I really would like to see the second season put out on DVD also.
