Legion of Super Heroes is an animated series that takes place in the 31st century. This team of heroes consists of a teenage Superman and includes other characters such as Lightning Lad, Saturn Girl, Timber Wolf, Brainiac 5, Bouncing Boy and Phantom Girl. Together they battle evil forces to protect mankind. Besides Superman, I have never heard of any of these characters. In fact, this is my first time being introduced to the show. Although it’s targeted at a younger audience, I thought it was an enjoyable show filled with lots of action and comedy. This Volume 3 DVD includes 5 fun episodes of the show’s first season. I didn’t expect the dramatic turn the show took during the last couple episodes, where a member of the Legion had to make an ultimate sacrifice to defeat the galaxy destroying weapon known as the Sun-Eater. With all the many superhero shows and cartoons out, this one turned out to be a surprise, and is definitely worth checking out.

Legion of Super Heroes: Volume 3 is out now on DVD.
