So with that, we're counting down the greatest superteams of all time! Scott Campbell Wildstorm series Gen 13? Well, maybe Rob Liefeld's X-Force , so that's why they're tied for 10th place in our list. The title's influence lives on today, with the X-Force name undergoing several recent revivals before its current hiatus. If X-Force helped established the Image era, Gen 13 serves as one of its most recognizable historical markers.
It even launched its young artist in superstardom and onto his own creator-owned work Danger Girl in a fitting bit of history repeating itself.
Much like how the Justice League gathered the most popular superheroes in the DC Universe, the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen took the, ahem, 'novel' approach of uniting some of the greatest fictional characters of the Victorian era into a superhero team of sorts. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and the Invisible Man, brought together by the grandfather of James Bond.

The unconventional concept caught on, and even inspired a "better if we don't mention it" film. The Justice Society of America are the originals. They're the first team of superheroes to gather on the comic book page in history, pre-dating even the much more famous Justice League of America. The team debuted in , dubbed the "Golden Age" of comic books, and included characters like the early versions of Green Lantern, the Flash, the Atom and the Sandman. Following the team's original run, it was two notable revivals that really cemented the Justice Society's place in history - first in 's The Flash , which established DC's Earth-2, and then in , when a relaunched series reunited some of the original characters and introduced new blood to the roster.
Many people won't realize this, but the Legion of Super-Heroes actually existed before most of the other groups on this list. What most people do know, however, is that there have been many conflicting continuities for the team, making this group of teen heroes from the future one of the most confusing and complicated groups of characters ever in comic books. Originally from the 30th now 31st century, the Legion of Super-Heroes was inspired by tales of Earth's heroes from the 20th and 21st Centuries, particularly Superman.
What was originally a one-off guest star spot in Adventure Comics in turned into frequent guest spots, and several ongoing series of their own over the next 50 odd years. Though the Legion's "New 52" ongoing series was cancelled, members of the team have occasionally appeared in other titles. The Legion is a bastion of hope, they're a sign that super-heroic ideals can survive for millennia, and they allow us to peek far into the future.
At this point, the book was written by longtime fan Paul Levitz and drawn by James Sherman , although Gerry Conway frequently wrote as well. During this period, Karate Kid was spun off into his own 20th Century-based self-titled series, which lasted 15 issues. Levitz left the book, to be replaced full-time by Gerry Conway.
Superboy departed from the Legion due to a plot of a villain, and the book was renamed simply Legion of Super-Heroes starting with issue January Editor Jack C. Harris hired Steve Ditko as guest artist on several issues, a decision which garnered a mixed reaction from the title's readership. Paul Levitz returned to write the series with Pat Broderick and Bruce Patterson illustrated the title for a short time before Keith Giffen began on pencils, with Patterson, and then Larry Mahlstedt, on inks. The creative team received enhanced popularity following " The Great Darkness Saga ",  which ran from ; —; and Annual 3, featuring a full assault on the United Planets by Darkseid.
Comics historian Les Daniels observed that "Working with artist Keith Giffen, Levitz completed the transformation of Legion into a science-fiction saga of considerable scope and depth. The Legion celebrated issue June by revisiting the "Adult Legion" storyline through a series of parallel world short stories illustrated by a number of popular Legion artists from previous years. The story served to free up Legion continuity from following the "Adult Legion" edict of previous issues. The existing Legion series, renamed Tales of the Legion of Super-Heroes with issue , continued running new material for a year, then began reprinting stories from the new Legion of Super-Heroes with issue Tales continued publishing reprints until its final issue, December The new series was launched in August  with a five-part story featuring the Legion of Super-Villains.
Giffen left in the middle of the story and was replaced by Steve Lightle , who stayed on the book for a year. The debut story arc saw the death of Karate Kid in issue 4 November Greg LaRocque began a lengthy run in 16 November , including a crossover with John Byrne 's recently rebooted Superman titles in 37 and The crossover was the first of several attempts by DC editors to explain the origins and fate of Superboy and his history with the Legion, in light of the revisions to the DC Universe caused by Crisis on Infinite Earths that removed Superman's career as Superboy from his personal history.
In the crossover, the Legion's Superboy was revealed to have come from a parallel "Pocket Universe" created by the Time Trapper. Levitz's run ended with the return of Giffen and a four-part story "The Magic Wars", concluding in 63 August Giffen took over plotting as well as penciling with the Legion of Super-Heroes volume 4 title which started in November , with scripts by Tom and Mary Bierbaum and assists by Al Gordon. However, a group of former Legionnaires worked to re-form the Legion in this harsh new universe, in which Earth was ruled by the alien Dominators. Shortly after this storyline began, the decision was made to retroactively remove Superboy completely from Legion history.
Writer Mark Waid stated that "Because of inter-office politics and machinations The writers' solution was a massive retcon , in which Mon-El served in the role of paragon instead of Superboy, with several more retcons to follow. One major storyline during this period was the discovery of Batch SW6 , a group of clones of the early Legion, c. Keith Giffen's original conclusion for the storyline was that the clones would eventually have been revealed to be the real Legion, and the ones whose adventures had been chronicled since the s were actually the clones.
Afterwards, the older team would explore the Vega System as a 30th-century version of the Omega Men in a new series while the younger team would act as the main Legion on Earth. Giffen's other conclusion was for several of the younger and older Legionnaires to die while liberating Earth from the Dominion. The older Legion would defend Earth while the younger Legion would act as the last line of defense for the United Planets as the Omega Men. Instead, a parallel title, Legionnaires, was launched, starring the "SW6" Legion, whose origins were not resolved until the Zero Hour crossover by a different writing team.
Legionnaires was lighter in tone than the main Legion book, and was written by the Bierbaums and drawn by Chris Sprouse. Giffen left the book after a storyline which involved the destruction of Earth,   and the Bierbaums continued writing, overseeing the return of several classic characters. When the Bierbaums left, writer Tom McCraw took over and made a number of changes, such as forcing several Legion members underground, which required them to take on new identities and costumes, and bringing back long-absent Legionnaire Wildfire.
As part of the Zero Hour company-wide crossover, the Legion's original continuity came to an end with Legion of Super-Heroes vol. In the year , the Earth's sun has turned red and several failed Legion applicants who were born on Earth have banded together to form the Justice League of Earth under the leadership of Earth-Man after he claims that Superman was a human who gained his powers from "Mother Earth". Earth-Man uses the claim to have Earth secede from the United Planets and ban all aliens from Earth, resulting in several Legionnaires going underground. Geoff Johns stated that the intent of the mini-series was to validate the existence of all three versions of the team while simultaneously restoring the pre- Crisis Legion's continuity as well.
In the story, Batman recounts the JLA and JSA 's battle alongside the original Legion to defeat Mordru,   the "Reboot" team's assistance in destroying a Sun-Eater in the 20th century,  and his own recent encounter with the "Threeboot" team. This version of the Legion was featured in the second Adventure Comics series from September to October , with the feature focusing on the Legion Academy from April onwards.
This Legion played a part in the " Superman: Last Stand of New Krypton " storyline in , where the ongoing continual events of " The Lightning Saga " concluded in its entirety. Legion of Super-Heroes was relaunched in September with issue 1.
