The Legion of Super-Heroes from the 21st Century

November 11, 2011 by The Belated Nerd

Okay, it’s probably a typo (Wikipedia assures me that DC’s Legion of Super-Heroes is from the 30th Century)  but everything else about this extra from Superman Annual #4 is very informative, especially for someone like me who grew up reading mostly Marvel books (where one might win a no-prize for correcting such a millennial flub).

  1. That is no typo; when the LSH was first introduced, they indeed hailed from the far-flung 21st Century. As contemporary science advanced, the date was steadily and aggressively pushed ahead, until DC made the (brilliant!) editorial decision that every Legion story takes place exactly one thousand years in the future from its date of publication.
