Legion of Super Heroes




  • Episode Guide
  • Theme Song

    Originally called Superboy and the Legion of Super Heroes, the name of the comic book on which this series is based, the name Superboy was dropped due to a legal battle over the rights to Superboy's name. Instead, a young Clark Kent is simply referred to as Superman.

    The show follows the young heroes of the 31st century who travel back through time to seek the help of the legendary Superman. But they overshoot and instead meet a young Superman who has not yet left the farm. He travels back to the future with them and they have two seasons worth of fun adventures.

    The series debuted on September 23, 2006 as part of the KidsWB! program block on the CW Network.

    The second season takes place two years after the events in season one's finale. ALl the characters have a new design and new characters are introduced, including Superman X, the clone from the 41st century.

    There was a third season planned which would have included the redemption of Brainiac 5 along with the inclusion of new characters such as Sensor, Wildfire, and Shadow Lass. Unfortunately, when the CW Network switched its KidsWB! program block to 4Kids, Legion of Super Heroes got lost in the shuffle.
