Paul Levitz to write relaunched Legion of Super-Heroes

by  in Comic News Comment

Birds of Prey isn’t the only DC Comics series returning this spring. The publisher announced this morning that it will relaunch Legion of Super-Heroes with writer Paul Levitz and artist Yildiray Cinar at the helm.

Levitz, who recently stepped down as president and publisher of DC, wrote the series on and off between 1974 and 1989, creating landmark runs against which all later versions of the title are inevitably compared. Cinar is probably best known for his work on the Ravager co-feature in Teen Titans.

As previously announced, Levitz also will write the recently relaunched Adventure Comics, which also features the Legion of Super-Heroes.

“It’s such fun to be back in the future, blowing up planets, undoing Legion marriages, revealing unrevealed factoids, and starting improbable new relationships,” Levitz told the DC Universe blog. “If there’s a better job in comics than writing the Legion, with its vast cast and creative opportunities, I’ve never held it.”
