If you watched Challenge of the Superfriends cartoon growing up, you know their biggest enemy was the Legion of Doom. The Legion of Doom was the villains answer to the group of Superheroes at the Hall of Justice. The Legion even had a cool headquarters (Hall of Doom) that was shaped like Dart Vader’s helmet. I spent many Saturday mornings in front of the TV watching the Superfriends thwart the Legions attempts at villianry.
The good folks at DC Comics are gonna give us the Legion of Doom once again. Even better, they are putting Scott Snyder in charge of writing the story and Jim Cheung will be giving us the artwork. The first arc of the Justice League relaunch for DC Rebirth will feature the Legion of Doom as the main antagonists. The Legion will consist of Lex Luthor, the Joker, Sinestro, Cheetah, Black Manta, and Gorilla Grodd. That line-up should give you chills.
Scott Snyder has said the Joker will play a very important role in the story and not be just comedic relief. Looking back at Snyder’s previous work on Batman and the Dark Nights Metal series, I am giddy with anticipation. I can’t wait to see Justice League back in prominence again. The writing of Snyder along with this new Legion of Doom promises some very epic stories.
Who is your favorite villain team in the comics? Do you think Snyder will return Justice League to the top of the sales charts? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
