Editorial Reviews

Kids WB! Brings you a new series inspired by the DC Comics legend Superman. In LEGION OF SUPER HEROES, a team of superheroes from the 31st century heads back in time to enlist Superman's help in battling their nemeses, the Fatal Five. But when they arrive in the Man of Steel's hometown, Smallville, they discover that they've miscalculated a bit. Instead of a powerful, confident Superman, they find the introverted, insecure young adult Clark Kent, whose abilities need fine-tuning and who knows nothing of the legend that comic book history says he'll become.It takes some effort, but Brainiac 5, Bouncing Boy, and Saturn Girl convince Clark that he's special and may be able to help them. Although he sincerely doubts that he's the "Superman" they keep talking about, his curiosity is piqued enough that he goes back to the future with them. The legion itself is a group of well-meaning, undisciplined and unpredictable, super powered young adults who just happen to be the Universe’s only hope. The Legionnaires are still light-years away from becoming the seasoned (and cynical) pros of the Justice League.

One thousand years from now, the Legion of Superheroes, a group of extraordinary teens, decides to travel back in time to recruit the greatest superhero into its ranks. But they overshoot and go back a bit too far in time. What they end up with isn't Superman in his prime, but, rather, a raw, untested teenager named Clark Kent who's about to embark for Metropolis. This animated series, then, follows Clark Kent's adventures in the far flung 31th Century as he helps the Legion do battle against a host of intergalactic menaces.

LEGION OF SUPERHEROES Vol. 2 stingily doles out four more episodes from this series' pretty good 13-episode inaugural season, as Warner Brothers again do us the dirty by releasing a season, bits at a time. Personally, I recommend that you wait for the complete season release before dropping your dollars. But it all depends on your waiting stamina. I'm not sure if the series's cancellation (sadly, after a mere two seasons!) will have any bearing on the promptness of its dvd releases.

As far as the four episodes included here, all in all, they're decent enough, for all that they aren't my favorites of the first season. As usual, a young Superman serves as the centerpiece. Two episodes focus muchly on Lightning Lad, not one of my preferred Legionnaires. Family dynamics surface as Phantom Girl is embarassed by her mom, who happens to be the President of the United Planets, and Garth Ranzz renews his sibling rivalry with his older brother Mekt. And if you thought Garth was cocky, wait 'til you get a load of Mekt. I like Bouncing Boy a lot, so "Fear Factory" was a treat for me as Bouncing Boy's fascination with horror films plays a hilarious and key role in the plot.

I absolutely loved this series. It was so well done, and I was very sad when it was cancelled at the end of season two. :(

Now, the WB seems bound and determined to continue to release four episodes per disc of this series, and I am afraid that the low sales are going to keep them from releasing the season sets anytime soon.

Newsflash! The low sales on these limited episode sets are because everyone is waiting for you to release the season sets!!!!!!!! C'mon, WB! Release the season sets of Legion of Superheroes....please.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's awesome. May 18, 2009
Verified Purchase
I only started watching this cartoon because of Brainiac 5, and I was never really a fan of DC comics, but then I got really into Teen Titans, and it kind of led me into watching this one. It's complete awesomeness, and I really wish that they had at least continued into a third season, maybe direct to video or something, but I think they shouldn't have left at such a frustrating cliffhanger in season 2. It's a really great show though, the animation is smooth, the humor is fresh and ACTUALLY FUNNY(like in Brain Drain), the themes in the show are obvious but they don't punch you in the face, and...it gets kind of addicting, actually.

4.0 out of 5 stars Inoffensive Fun July 17, 2014
By Adam
This second set of episodes in this series maintain the standard of the previous volume, providing an hour and a half of inoffensive fun. It probably would have been a much bigger hit in the 1990s, but was still enjoyable.

In my opinion, "Fear Factory" was probably the weakest program on the disc with its odd, "Haunted House in Space" idea which had some issues particularly with Bouncing Boy reduced to typical cowardly fat guy. It was a bit much.

The other three episodes are far more enjoyable. The relationship between Lightning Lad and his brother featured two episodes is pretty intriguing. Also, "Fear Factory" and "Brain Drain" are solid looks at Brainiac 5. In the end, this is a likable group of heroes with great fun for kids and kids at heart.
