Very well done!
Originally titled, "Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes," the "Boy" became Superman, reportedly due to the recent verdict in the "Superboy" rights case between DC and the Siegel estate. With that in mind, they did a great job of explaining who the Legion is, without an origin story, and while it's not exactly "Adventure" #247, the spirit is all there. The design of the Fatal Five was great, and they're all used effectively, as are the Legionnaires. Triplicate Girl's "tri-jitsu" really comes alive, and Bouncing Boy was made for animation! The psychic rings of Saturn, emanating latitudinally from Imra's head is a great visual, and while I'd not have taken Brainiac 5 in this route, being a "transformer" who may be an up-grade of the original Braniac, turned good works really well here. I'd have liked to have seen more Legionnaires, but there are more in the opening, and the Mission Monitor Board symbols suggest that we can, and hopefully will, see any of the others, at any time.
Now if IMDb can just get the credits for the show updated!!!
