Legion of Super-Heroes replaced with a futuristic Justice League

The last series DC published starring the Legion has been canceled. That's actually a lucky thing, because with awful staffers like they now have, the Legion only suffered from the same bad writing affecting all of the "New 52".

But now, it's all been replaced by a futuristic version of the Justice League:
With Legion of Super-Heroes now a title of the past, DC Comics is looking to keep interest in the heroes of the 31st century alive. Unfortunately, Justice League 3000 isn’t up to the job just yet.

The Legion is dead. Long live… the Justice League? Well, not exactly. The titular team happens to be made up of clones of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern Hal Jordan, and the Flash (Barry Allen, to be specific). Created by the Project Cadmus of the 31st century, this version of the Justice League is less than perfectly heroic.
Nice to see Broken Frontier didn't go sugarcoated with this review, though under the circumstances, JL 3000 won't be up to the job at all. If the futuristic take on the League is less than heroic, chances are it mirrors a lot of the MO used in the series set in the present.

It also looks like a weak knockoff of Marvel's 2099 line from the mid-90s, which wasn't very good either.

Ew.

I can understand not wanting to wade through yet another reboot of LSH. (Man, did the Bierbaums and Zero Hour ever do a number on what was once the most loyal group of comic fans around.) But cloned JL 3000? Yeah, that'll last about 8 issues.

Happy Mothers Day to all of you

About me

  • I'm Avi Green

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
