Brian Michael Bendis To Bring Legion of Super-Heroes Back as Ongoing Series

This September, DC fans will embark on a journey into the future(s) of the DC Universe and the 31st Century, as the publisher announced plans for a two-part monthly series, LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES: MILLENNIUM. This two-issue prelude, written by Brian Michael Bendis and featuring art by Jim Lee, Ryan Sook, Nicola Scott and others, paves the way for an all-new LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES ongoing series by Bendis and Sook.

The series focuses on a most unlikely tour guide to the 31st Century, a familiar face to DC fans who finds herself suddenly immortal. As she learns to cope with her newfound immortality and the reason she was chosen for this quest, her 1,000-year odyssey will connect all of DC’s future timelines for the very first time. Along the way she encounters a host of DC heroes from the future, as drawn by some of comics’ most popular artists:

  • Supergirl, drawn by Jim Lee
  • Batman Beyond, drawn by Dustin Nguyen
  • Kamandi, drawn by Andrea Sorrentino
  • Tommy Tomorrow, drawn by André Lima Araújo

“Since its Silver Age origin, the Legion of Super-Heroes has been the cornerstone of the future DC Universe,” said Bendis. “Over time, a wealth of future characters and stories have emerged since the Legion’s beginnings and connecting these threads to an updated version of the Legion is a story Ryan and I can’t wait to tell.” 

The second issue is scheduled for October and continues this mystery quest, making additional stops in the future DCU, rendered by an equally talented roster of artists:

  • Booster Gold, drawn by Nicola Scott
  • OMAC, drawn by Jim Cheung
  • A DC “off-world” chapter, drawn by Jeff Dekal
  • Legion of Super-Heroes, drawn by Ryan Sook

LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES: MILLENNIUM #1 debuts in comic book stores on Wednesday, September 4 and will be available to pre-order in the July DC PREVIEWS catalog.
