Legion of Super Heroes is a show done by creative minds that worked on Justice League Unlimited and Teen Titans. 1, 000 years from now, there exists a team of superheroes that protect the entire universe. To bolster their power, the team decided to go back to the days of Superman and recruit him to be a member of their team. They bring him forward into the future and after aiding them in a crisis, Superman decides to remain with them once they assure him they can return him to his own times seconds after he left.
In Season 2, Kell-El, a cloned Superman from the 41st century, comes to the 31st century along with Imperiex, a tyrant intent on conquering the galaxy. The Legion must aid him before Imperiex destroys everything and everyone they know.
Legion of Super Heroes debuted on the twenty third of September. This series airs alongside the other CW Superhero cartoon The Batman.
