I have a question after reading the first few issues of the current Legion of Superheroes. What version of the Legion is being used? I ask this because I can't seem to find out. The Legion of SH series that was cancelled a year or so ago seems to have a completely different history. In that series, Saturn girl and Lightning Lad weren't married, and didn't have kids (I'm pretty sure). There are also other differences. I was just trying to look up the back story for a few of the Legionaires (Phantom Girl and Saturn Girl). I know there were several different Legion groups (I read Legion of Three Worlds). Is the one in the current series based on an older group that was rebooted, or what?

according to the All Knowing One,the Legion featured in the new ongoing series is the post-Infinite Crisis one.

Oh, ok. I think (after some intensive searching) I get it. There is the group, the post infinite crisis group, and another group (the 1994 Reboot group) and these were the groups featured in Legion of Three Worlds. All of these reboots are kind of confusing, I don't think any other group has gone through so many reboots as this one, atleast not in the same time period.

The Legion in the current LoSH ongoing is the one established in the Superman & the Legion of Super-heroes arc in Action Comics and the Final Crisis: Legion of 3 Worlds mini-series.

Ok, thianks. I also found this online

Quote:
Geoff Johns has stated that this incarnation of the Legion shares the same history as the original Legion up to the events of Crisis on Infinite Earths, with Clark Kent having joined the team as a teenager (under the name Superboy) prior to the start of his career as Superman. It is revealed at the end of the Final Crisis Legion of 3 Worlds mini-series that the post-Infinite Crisis team inhabits New Earth, the principal Earth in current DC continuity.


So I guess I can read the original series and look up info on the characters original origins to learn more about their current incarnations.

Also from what I understand Legion Lost was a fantastic Maxi-Series and if I remember correctly they were also featured in the Legion of 3 Worlds...weren't they?
