Legion: Secret Origin #5

So, Paul Levitz continues to recraft the origin story of Legion of Super-Heroes for the umpteenth time, with the trademark upbeat hopeful tones the DCU future tends to have.  With repeated assassination attempts on Legion benefactor R.J. Brande and an interestellar threat of mysterious origins dividing the forces of the fledgling new team, they're now making an effort to go back in time and recruit the legendary Superman into their ranks to help out. 

How will this jive with Grant Morrison's depiction of Kal-El's first meeting with the Legionnaires in Action Comics #6, which shows Clark as a much younger boy than we see in the pages below?  We'll have to wait and see.

Check out these preview pages from Legion: Secret Origin #5, featuring art from Chris Batista and Marc Deering.
