Doctor Who & the Legion of Super-Heroes–Non-Existent Crossovers (Tenth Doctor)

Doctor Who Invades the Multiverse: Star Trek / Legion of Super-Heroes

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.

At Long Last, the Legion (Legion of Super-Heroes–Millennium)

After six years of being largely off of their publishing slate, DC Comics announced a new Legion o Super-Heroes series in June 2019, to be written by former Marvel superstar Brian Michael Bendis. Legion fans immediately split into three broad groups–those who loved Bendis and were excited about the news, those who hated Bendis and were frustrated by the news, and those who may or may not have loved or hated Bendis, but loved the Legion and were willing to put up with just about anything to get them in print again.

I came closest to the third group.
