DC’s Legion of Superheroes Coming To TV

DC Entertainment CCO Geoff Johns says that a Legion of Super-Heroes tease is coming to one of the DC TV series currently on the air says TV Line.

Making their first appearance in the comics in 1958, the ‘Legion’ consists of three teenagers (Cosmic Boy, Lightning Lad and Saturn Girl) from the 30th century. That legion has expanded over the years and previously appeared in live-action form in a 2009 episode of “Smallville”.

Johns teases that this teasing appearance in one of the shows – “Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl” or “DC’s “Legends of Tomorrow,” may only be the first: “Keep watching…You’ll see a hint of the Legion on one of our shows… I love the Legion, they’re underused and hopefully we’ll get them out there soon.”

With its time-traveling element, ‘Legends’ seems to make the most sense as that series will also see a visit to the past with DC Comics character Jonah Hex popping up.
