The Legion of Superheroes is a group of diverse aliens around the year 3000 in the DC Comics universe. Equal parts X-Men and Justice League, the group over the decades has gone through many incarnations and reboots. Rather than play on an existing universe [cause the series is currently in the process of being relaunched by Brian Michael Bendis] what I hope to get a handful of players behind is the idea of reinterpreting it ourselves and potentially have two characters per player to make the roster more fleshed out. For example players could take one cannon Legion character and reinterpret them. Gender flip them, change their race or planet origin, you can keep or change as much as you want. Then for a secondary character you could recreate another Legion cannon character or create an original. If you’re a Legion fan already you likely have a few favorites, as the roster is quite literally the equivalent of the X-Men in the DCU. Here’s a link with info on some of the individual members of past and more recent Legion casts.



As far as the story and gameplay goes, we’d select three characters to act as the founders. With a group of at least 5-6 players we’d have between 6-12 characters in play [as some of you may not want a secondary character]. The RP would pick up some time after the team is formed and we will go into the game defending the United Planets based out of Superman’s former city Metropolis on Earth. This RP could be the standard Casual Level RP or it could even be stat based like my last Legion RP. I’ve got several ideas where to take a game like this in either outcome, so it makes no difference to this guy. I just need an RP right now with the additional free time on my hands. This could go as big as 10 players with a cast of characters between 10-20 heroes.

If there’s at least a few players interested I’ll post up some CS requirements. If there’s enough for a stat based game [it’s like D&D dumbed down and w/o dice] I’ll post stat requirements as well.

Also gonna go ahead and call dibs on Sun Boy and Triplicate Girl/Duplicate Girl!

Remember the Legion will have their flight rings/translators. Just try and recreate a character in the Legion cannon first before making complete originals for secondaries. With five of us so far we could start out with ten Legionaries.

Superhero games on the decline on the site or is the Legion considered too niche now? Usually I get at least a few interested parties, one or two people somewhat familiar with the concept...

Where's @knighthawk, @Bluetommy, @Gisk, @Weird Tales, @DrewVonAwesome, @Afro Samurai, @Endrance, etc.?! I NEED you guys LOL

Any of you guys got character ideas yet? I’m thinking either going Brainiac 5 or a new Almeracian superman

@Omega Man Does it have to be the same person, or just someone with the same powers and name etc? Like a legacy.

Ooh, irrelevant question. I'm gonna do Gear. There isn't a lot of background lore, so that gives me some liberties anyway.

So we can make multiple characters for this? Let me dwell on this but I might go ahead and claim Ultra Boy first.

@Gisk The way Bendis is rolling his new Legion, they use the codename, powers, and personality and go from there. In the past their home worlds have changed, origins altered, and looks completely changed. Good examples would be the "threeboot" Legion's Colossal Boy who was a giant from another world that could shrink to normal size rather than a human from Earth who gained powers from a serum. Dream Girl was always a blonde in silver spandex but now in Bendis' reboot she looks like she's covered in a white starfield type effect.

Primary characters need to be based on existing character concepts, secondaries can be originals or based on something like primaries. I almost made another Ultra Boy from Daxam lol

@rocketrobie2 Hey, Gear apparently was repaired by Brainiac 5 in canon at some point, if you play him they should be friends.

I'm thinking as a second character some kind of variation of Karate Kid also just as an FYI for everyone.

@Gisk@Gisk Absolutely. I’m pretty sure B5 is the guy I’m gonna roll with too in the beginning so we could start brainstorming how they met up after a get a bit more backstory for Brainiac 5.

What's the range we're going for age wise with the team?
