Tellus, real name Ganglios, is a native of the methane-atmosphere planet Hykraius. All Hykraians are methane-breathers and cannot survive outside a liquid methane environment without special breathing apparatus (in Tellus' case, a special helmet). Like all members of his race, Tellus was both telepathic and telekinetic, and it was his skill with these powers that helped gain him entry into the Legion Academy and later the Legion itself. Tellus is currently a regular character in the current Legion Lost book, where he and several Legion comrades are trapped in the twenty-first century. I don't know the name of the artist for the BG, I got it from visual paradox. As usual I went over it and changed it to fit my character better. It was challenging and a lot of fun drawing this character. I wasn't too crazy about most of the art I came across while researching Tellos, so I toke many liberties not only to come up with an animated version but to make it a little more interesting to look at.

The young woman called Glorith is the second to bear that name, also Black Witch's apprentice and newest member of the Legion Academy. The first Glorith was a one-time Legion foe who was recruited by the Time Trapper. The curent Glorith is a young woman whose background is still a mystery. She has said that she was "chosen as a baby to serve the light" and has no memory or images of her parents. She first appeared under the wing of the Black Witch and Blok, on the Sorceror's World. The current incarnation of Glorith has training in the use of sorcery, but is still a novice in the mystic arts. She has certain magical abilities that can be used spontaneously, but apparently requires prior preparation or the use of rituals for more significant effects. The BG was made by Srinu, to my understanding. Of course I retouched it to match my character better. You can find more of those magical backgrounds on
Special thanks to all The Legion of Super Heroes fans for your support!

Karate Kid

No, not the Karate Kid from 1984 with Ralph Macchio and no, not the new remake of the Karate Kid with Jaden Smith that was actually Kung Fu. This is the "real" Karate Kid from the Legion of Super Heroes in the future. Real name Val Armorr, he is a master of every form of martial arts to have been developed by the 31st century. The extent of his skill is so great that he can severely damage various types of hard material with a single blow and was briefly able to hold his own against Superboy through use of what he called "Super Karate". I remember when I was a kid and the Ralph Macchio movie came out I got excited thinking it was this character, but instead it was Pat Morita wax on wax off. I couldn't resist to cast Bruce Lee for   the Karate Kid of the Legion. He was such an iconic martial artist. For those that don't know, Karate comes from Japan, Kung Fu comes from China, is not the same thing. Val Armorr was the son of one of Japan's greatest crime lords, Kirau Nezumi, also known as Black Dragon. Japan's greatest hero Sensei Toshiaki (the White Crane) eventually killed Black Dragon for his crimes and adopted the infant Val. He raised Val as if he were his own son, and trained him in all manner of the martial arts.

Star Boy

Thom Kallor was born on a orbital satellite over the planet Xanthu in the 30th century. His parents were astronomers and Thom was born with the meta ability to control gravity. Star Boy possesses the ability to control the gravitational force of an object. He does so by borrowing the gravity from stars and redirecting this force onto a designated area. He can sink cities and pinpoint it to objects smaller than pebbles. He is capable of drawing enough mass to create a black hole by recreating the weight of a collapsing star. Thom wears a suit crafted together by three different Brainiac 5's that is a map of the multiverse. It is fine tuned so that Thom's mass induction ability when properly applied can create small wormholes into these realities or transport himself. It is a skill he has yet to refine. Of course there is the whole love affair with Dream Girl that ended not so good and cost him to get expelled from the Legion. The Star Boy of Earth Prime differed from other realities in that he was of African descent. On new Earth he decided to defend Opal City like the Starmen before him. He even took on their codename as Starman. Shortly thereafter, his heroic efforts in Opal caught the attention of the reformed Justice Society of America and Thom was recruited.

Comet Queen

Comet Queen was a member of the Legion Academy. She "Graduated" to the Legion of Substitute Heroes. A teenager from the planet Quaal-III, Grava was starstruck by the Legion and hoped to join by replicating the original powers of Star Boy. Taking her star-ship on an intercept course with the closest comet, Grava jumped through its tail naked and came out mutated with different powers than she had hoped for. This did not detour her and Grava bid her time, and built up some credits, to fly off to Earth and set out to prove herself worthy of Legion membership. She is able to fly at super-speeds while trailing a stream of stellar energy, much like a comet does. She has great skill in flying, showing hairline maneuvering through various obstacles at high speeds. She seems to be able to alter the chemical components of the gaseous trail she leaves behind - with various effects. Already demonstrated are effect include a gas which allows a deep, large cloud covering making it impossible to see through. Another induces drowsiness or even sleep in those who inhale its fumes. Whether she will demonstrate more remains to be seen.

Colossal Boy

Colossal Boy real name Gim Allon, is a member of the Legion of Super-Heroes who can increase his size and strength to gigantic levels. The Original Gim Allon was born the only son to Wynn and Marte Allon of Earth. He was raised in a patriotic and Jewish family. As a young man, Gim enrolled in the Science Police Training Academy to become a member of the Science Police. While on vacation on Mars with fellow cadet and childhood friend Gigi Cusimano, a strange meteor crashed into the soil near him. The meteor's radiation altered his body's RNA, giving him the power to grow to giant sizes at will. On the Threeboot Earth-Prime reality, Gim Allon was from Earth but has different ancestry. He was born to a race of giants and had a genetic mutation which allowed him to shrink to a 6' height. As a Legionnaire, Gim has completed personal combat training and wears the Legion flight ring to fly. The ring also serves as a communication and projection tool. With his additional combat training from his studies with the Science Police, he is one of the most skilled hand-to-hand combatants in the LSH and familiar with law protocol.
I remember when I was a kid, I pretended to be Colossal Boy and play with my action figures as if they were small humans, ha. 
This background is from the concept art of Mass Effect 3, it's titled Thessia and done by artist Kathryn aka Fluidity. I went over it and changed it enough so it fits the 2D animation style better.

Dream Girl

Dream Girl (real name Nura Nal) is a member of the Legion of Super-Heroes in the 30th and 31st centuries. Nura's home planet is Naltor, where virtually all the inhabitants possess precognitive abilities. She is rated one of the most powerful precognitives on the planet. Her precognitive abilities also give her an edge in strategic planning. She is highly charismatic, capable of convincing men and women to do what she wants, and guided the Legion as leader through Darkseid's awakening in the Legion's time.

Brainiac 5

Brainiac 5 is a long-standing member of the Legion of Super-Heroes with a 12th level intelligence and force-field belt. He is an expert on the science of time-travel (and many other things). 
In the 30th Century, Querl Dox was born on Colu, a direct descendant of the original Brainiac and Vril Dox II. After centuries of disuse, the title "Brainiac" was taken by Querl's father, and eventually was given to Querl at the age of twelve. He was the fifth to ever hold the title. Making many breakthroughs in the science of time travel during university as a young boy thanks to his mentor Circadia Senius, Querl was invited to join the Time Institute in Metropolis on Earth. He became close friends with fellow time genius, Rond Vidar. He invented the Time Bubble, which became the primary mode of time travel for the Legion of Super-Heroes.  The background titled  Space Laboratory was made by Dorianoart-d4jvi0z. Of course it was changed and toned down to fit the animation look better.

And for my 200th post and since I'm doing The legion of Super Heroes, Superboy was a good choice, incidentally was also inspired on comic book day. 
Real name Kal-El originally from Krypton and raised on Earth by human farmers, Jonathan and Martha Kent. Basically Superboy is Superman as a boy. Superboy has adventures that occur in the relative past to those of Superman and take place predominantly in his hometown of Smallville. In 1958, a Superboy story called "The Legion of Super-Heroes" in Adventure Comics #247 changed all that. The story features three super-powered teenagers from the 30th century who offer Superboy membership in their superhero club, the Legion of Super-Heroes.
