As briefly revealed in September, DC has made Justice League vs. The Legion of Super-Heroes official.
The six-issue limited series launches January 11, 2022, and as expected, is written by current Justice League monthly series writer and the most recent Legion of Super-Heroes series writer Brian Michael Bendis.
Justice League vs. The Legion of Super-Heroes will be illustrated by Scott Godlewski.
The limited series seems something of a prelude to whatever Darkseid has cooking as revealed on the last page of Infinite Frontier #6, the event's finale.
According to DC, both the contemporary Justice League and the Legion from 1000 years in the future discover both of their realities are falling to a "great darkness" simultaneously so in true comic book superhero fashion they team up to stop it.
Interestingly, although DC's description says the superhero teams team-up, the official title is "vs."
Hmmm... We'll see how the plays out as we get closer to release.
DC also promises a connection to the Great Darkness and the new Gold Lanterns Bendis introduced during his Legion run.
The Great Darkness is a call-back to the classic 1982 Legion of Super-Heroes story featuring Darkseid, 'The Great Darkness Saga' by writer Paul Levitz and artist Keith Giffen, which is one of the most highly-regarded DC story arcs of all time.
Justice League vs. The Legion of Super-Heroes will feature a cover by Godlewski and a variant cover by Travis Moore.
