The amazing artwork of Phil Jimenez brings the Legion Academy to life in Adventure Comics beginning with this month's issue (after a teaser back-up last month). Mr. Jiminez does double duty as he co-writes the feature with longtime scripter Paul Levitz.
The Legion began as a story in the old Superboy comics of the Silver Age, when the stories were being told of a young Clark Kent's teenage forays into super-heroing, and he was visited by three super teens from the future. The three turned into many, as the Legion of Super-Heroes' tales were told on and off for more than 50 years, including at least two reboots of the concept.
Currently, the original team is back and operating in the 31st century in their own book, while the Adventure Comics title is providing a fresh look at the Legion Academy concept, introduced back in the late sixties (long before Avengers Academy), wherein some of the Legion's minor players instruct new potential recruits or just those looking to hone their powers, and we readers get to meet some new characters.
