The Legion of Superheroes gives us a glimpse of the future of the DC Universe, where heroes are plentiful and far better organized.

What’s on this Legion of Superheroes Reading Order?

The Legion of Superheroes is a team that exists in the future. They occasionally show up in the main DC continuity, but only because they have the ability to time travel. They come from a time where there are a lot more superheroes, and they form a more organized part of society.

This timeline attempts to place all of the major Legion of Superheroes stories together in a rough chronological order. While it might not contain every single story with the character, it does look at the primary comics.

Where to Start?

You can start anywhere you like on this timeline. You can start with the classic stuff, or move on to the more recent comics. When you see the Volumes begin to start over with number 1, that’s often a good place to start.

As always, if you like this timeline, you might enjoy some of our others, including our massive collection of DC timelines in our DC Comics Hub. And if you see something that needs to be added or changed, be sure to let us know over on our contact page. We love to hear all your feedback! In the meantime, we hope you enjoy this Legion of Superheroes Reading Order.
