Ever since ever, the Legion of Super-Heroes has been my favorite comic book title. Lots of talented people have contributed to the depth, breadth and scope of the series and the world that it inhabits. And so last year, I kicked off our official Legion of Super-Heroes Creators Hall of Fame!
I was thinking today about examples where Doctor Who has spread out into other fictional arenas. Often this takes the form of Doctor Who simply being a TV show that exists in the world of these other programs, like whenever one of the characters referenced it in The Big Bang Theory.
But today’s focus is different. It’s one of those examples where the Doctor and the TARDIS and the lore of Doctor Who evidently “exists” in another fictional property—in this case, the Star Trek / Legion of Super-Heroes crossover series that IDW published in 2011-2012.
Welcome to the Futurescope, where my comic-loving daughter Johanna (16 years old) will be joining me on a re-read of the early day so of the Legion o Super-Heroes, as presented in DC’s handsome archive editions. I don’t know how frequently we’ll be able to get to this, but we’re going to give it a go!
