Well, the DCEU may remain a mess, but that won’t stop them. Multi-media, multi-platform churn is the order of the day and when you have a streamer to fill up, you can’t stop flogging the horse of a famous IP like DC comics. And so HBO Max returns to the stables once more, big stick in hand. Comic writer Brian Michael Bendis is on board to bring the Legion Of Superheroes to HBO Max.
Bendis has done a lot for Marvel, like creating Miles Morales and Jessica Jones. He jumps to HBO Max, DC, and (to Marvel) the darkside.
He published a Substack newsletter confirming he has signed up. It will be an adult animated series adaptation of Legion of Superheroes.
First published in the 1950s, the story follows a club being formed with Superboy as an inspiration, and they had time-traveled to recruit Superboy as a member. After a series of tests, Superboy was awarded membership and returned to his own time.
Although intended as a one-off story focusing on Superboy, the Legion proved so popular that it returned for an encore in Adventure Comics #267 (December 1959). The group of DC heroes from the 31st century idolizes the classic heroes from our time.
Bendis and Ryan Sook recently created a new run of Legion Of Superheroes and will base the series on that:
“Just like that series, on sale now, it will harken back to so many classics while at the same time doing what Legion does: pushing all the ideas of superheroes forward in every direction.
I think ‘Legion of Superheroes’ is among the greatest franchises in the history of comics and I’m as honored to be curating them as I was ‘Spider-Man.’”
Adult animation can mean something entirely different, especially in Japan. I hope they choose their internet tags wisely.
