Product Description

Legion of the Superheroes: Volume 1 (DVD)

Amazon.com

Ever since the late-1950s, DC's Legion of Super-Heroes has always had a dedicated, almost cult-ish following, but surely a Saturday-morning animated series was more than anyone could have hoped for. Even better, the series was well-written and quite good, and a good representation of the comic book. The LSH is a group of super-powered teenagers one thousand years in the future who time-travel to the past to recruit Superman to join their team. Due to a slight miscalculation, they go to Smallville and find the teenage Clark Kent, but he's still plenty powerful enough to join. (For legal reasons, the series was unable to use the name Superboy, so they still refer to him as Superman.) One of the quirky things about the Legion was its huge roster of characters, but the series concentrates on a handful, including Lightning Lad (with the power of electricity), Saturn Girl (telepathy), Brainiac 5 (a 12th-level intelligence and ego to match), Phantom Girl (intangibility), and Bouncing Boy (um, with the powers of a rubber ball, perhaps for diversity reasons?), though others appear or are name-dropped.

In the four episodes included in vol. 1, the Legion battles the Fatal Five, they meet a menacing character named Timber Wolf, Superman is attracted to a selfish teen celebrity (this is where referring to the character as Superboy would have been less icky), and Clark inadvertently releases a super-powered villain from the Phantom Zone. It's unfortunate that only four episodes were released rather than a full season, especially considering a couple of them were rerun frequently on the Kids WB when the series was new. There's also a nine-minute featurette in which the creators discuss the series, including how the Levitz-Giffen era was considered a "template." --David Horiuchi

I'm waiting for full season sets.

I kept trying to figure out if that was supposed to be the cut of their pants or boots or if that's just how their legs were shaped.

This 4 episodes on a disc for 10 bucks is lame.

The only reason Time-Warner continues to put out this one disc/three-four episodes nonsense is to snare small children, who will needle their parents into making the impulse buy. The adult fans of these shows already know to wait for the inevitable box sets. This is aimed squarely at kids, who don't have the ability to discern what a bad deal it truly is. Shame on you, Time-Warner.

I agree with some of the other writers here. If you buy this dvd you are supporting Warner Bro's and their consistant greedy bonehead decisions to constantly release these 3-4 episode per dvd items. It's ridiculous and a RIP OFF!! YOu can get the entire seasons of the Batman for no more that 15 bucks right after the season ends..but this cartoon you get only 4 episides for the same price and its also WB. Greedy. Please do not purchase this item. Force full season sets to be released day 1. True fans..I know you agree...represent.

I hate that Warner keeps doing these one disc/3 or 4 episode releases for their cartoon series first and waiting years to do full season releases. Full seasons releases are the standard now and I wish that Warner would get on board. I'll be waiting for the full season and will laugh when I see this release in the cut-out bin next year.

I actually bought this and then returned it as soon as I got it because I thought I had ordered the FULL season, this dvd only had 4 episodes, which is bogus. They need to stop playing games and give the fans and collectors what they want, not try to wring every penny out of our pockets.

This is a 1 for Warner but a 5 for the show.

If you are a Legion fan, you've probably already seen the show. But if you're a Legion fan who hasn't seen this incarnation of the team- or maybe a Teen Titans fan lamenting the loss of that great show- LoSH is worth seeing.

If you liked Teen Titans in animation then the Legion provides some interesting comparisons and contrasts- both are anime-influenced with plenty of action but while the theme of Teen Titans is friendship, the theme of the Legion is heroism. It leads to different relationships and a different feel to the show and although the characters are consistent in their actions and as well-developed as you could hope from the format, the chemistry between the characters is not quite where TT got in the first season- but there is promise in LoSH and I'm looking forward to season 2.

Despite the fact that LoSH is a kid/teen-oriented show and not part of the "Timmverse" I am happy with the way the writers and producers respect the history of the Legion- and some of that is in surprising ways, including a budding romantic relationship between two characters, the death of third and an epic story that is a part of Legion lore.

Granted, on a 4 episode DVD it's unlikely that you'll see any of those moments but when Warner finally gets around to releasing the complete first season on DVD I'll enjoy watching the evolution of the team by watching the episodes in order [Kid's WB showed the episode out of sequence during the broadcast run].

In short: great content, crummy marketing.

btw- this is not, "Legion of the Super Heroes." Ugh.

It's not as though it hasn't been two years since the series ended. I would really like to watch my show in Hi-def for a change. Please and thank you?

Let's get the rating over with: 5 stars for the series, 1 star for this Volume 1 excrement (which averages to 3 stars).

Tomorrow, young Clark Kent embarks on his new job as Daily Planet copy boy in bustling Metropolis. But, for now, he's spending his last night in Smallville. Later in that evening, he's visited by time travelling youths from the 31st century. They desperately need Clark and his abilities in order to best the powerful Fatal Five. But Clark still has a ways to go before he becomes the celebrated costumed crime fighter. In fact, he's still growing into his powers (he's still shaky on the flying part). And he's certainly never heard of this Superman fella. However, after being reassured that he'll be returned to the same temporal moment as his departure, he agrees to go on the adventure. Clark Kent doesn't know it yet, but it's gonna be a long night.

In 2006, the Kids' WB line - on the CW network - opened the curtains on LEGION OF SUPERHEROES. And, with the recent drying up of animated superhero shows, this one couldn't have come at a better time. It's a point of interest that this show doesn't bear the same continuity as Bruce Timm's Batman: T.A.S., Superman: T.A.S., or the JUSTICE LEAGUE/JLU series. But it doesn't really have to. LEGION OF SUPERHEROES is a darn good show, and will thrive on its own merits. Believe me. I've seen every episode. So, if you like the four episodes here, it gets even better.

The focus early on is mostly on this version of Superman (Superboy, really), but we get enough of a spotlight on the other kids to justify the series title.

I Completely Agree with all the Reviews so far
Jerry Seigel's (co-creator of Superman and creator of Superboy) heirs won a suit against DC (after years of non-payment for use of the character), enjoining the company from any further use of the Superboy name until compensation can be negotiated. This happened very close to the first airdate... Read More
