The Legion of Super-Heroes is a fantastic concept that's had a lot of trouble remaining coherent. A massive and organized team of super-heroes in the far-flung future, they usually have a lot of straightforward adventure stories, and too often find their continuity being rebooted time after time.
Now, with the New 52, DC is hoping to change all that. They have ongoing Legion of Super-Heroes and Legion Lost titles, and now longtime Legion guru Paul Levitz is giving us Legion: Secret Origin, a six-issue miniseries promising to detail the actual origins of this venerable 31st Century institution of young stalwart heroes from across the galaxy.
