Legion of Super Heroes

So thanks to Youtube, I've been able to catch a few of the episodes online. Actually I watched 8 episodes in a row as I worked. And you know what? It's pretty good! I'm not really familiar with the characters aside from Superboy so the whole thing is pretty fresh to me. I got a couple issues here and there from back in the days, but I never really read them. But from what I've seen, it looks like they can take the concept anywhere from sci-fi to straight up super hero stories. Anyone know if its' gone beyond 8 episodes? Anyways I decided to warm up doodling 3 of the main character from the comic. And what's up with Cosmic Boy not being on the show? I guess with Superboy er.. Superman they didn't need another boyscout.

We've seen 9 of the 13 episodes so far. The next two Saturdays are new, then repeats until the 2-part season finale in May. Cosmic Boy makes his first appearance next week with "an enigmatic hero" who is most likely Ferro Lad, since the finale has the team fighting the Sun-Eater.

You don't need to have read the comics to get the tv series. Yes, you'll see the Easter Eggs planted for the fans, but that's about it.

thanks, I'll have to keep an eye out for those episodes. And yeah that's whats great about the show, is that I could watch any episode and not feel lost.
