It’s time for the Legion of Super Heroes swan song, and it begins with the first of two parts this weekend on the Kids’ WB!

The Dark Victory synopsis and select images from the show after the jump.

    Brainiac 1.0 looks a lot like Brainiac 13.

    So, in Legion of Super-Heroes land / DC Comics television, Comics’ Brainiac 13 + Smallville’s James “I’m not Spike anymore” Marsters = Legion’s Braniac 5 … ?

    So sad. Legion is 1000000000000000 times beter than the “anime” The Batman. I hoped there was a Legion/Justice League crossover in the future. So sad.

    Well The Batman is cancelled too, so hopefully that brings a little joy to your heart.

    This is why it’s not a good idea to make the schmot guy into a robot. Shut up, it is not! XD

    This really sucks since I really like Bruce Timm’s work.

    Hope I see some more of it soon.
