Animated Legion Members

Membership List

The Legion of Super-Heroes cartoon series launched with a core group of seven Legionnaires plus Superman. Eight more (who were already Legionnaires) were introduced gradually during Season One. Five new Legionnaires were inducted during the Season One. Season Two (which skips ahead in time) featured the formal addition of seven more, plus a handful of new nonspeaking members.

Members included in this list have had speaking roles, appear in the opening sequence, or in other group scenes. Many Legionnaire symbols appear — including a number who never actually appear in the cartoon.

After the three founders, it was never specified what order the earlier Legionnaires joined.

Legionnaires such as Dream Girl, Tyroc, Blok, Element Lad, Star Boy, Sun Boy, and Shrinking Violet appear in minor or nonspeaking roles during Season One. From Legion season 1, episode 11 (2007).

Legion Character Sketches

These sketches were done by designer Ovi Nedelcu before the Legion animated series was created. The final creative direction did not go this way.
