It's good to see Timber Wolf in his old Curt Swan designed Silver Age togs.

Krypto the Super-Dog was a wildly entertaining show - hopefully, they won't drop the ball here.

Their choices are interesting: Superboy, Phantom Girl, Saturn Girl, Brainiac 5 (also in his Silver Age gear), Timber Wolf (who looks like he has his 5-year gap era Furball powers, which I loved the look of, but disliked what it did to his character; here it looks like best of both worlds), and XS from the Peyer years as the required ethnic Legionnaire. Is that Bouncing Boy, Chuck Taine, I see in the background?

WHY, I DO BELIEVE IT IS!  Cheesy

I'm not crazy about the Japanime style (as much I love, and still love SCIENCE NINJA TEAM GATCHAMAN) but then again, I loved the Batman animated show and the "simplified, blocky" animated style bugged me there, too.

XS is Jenni Ognats of Aarok, a member of the "Zero Hour" Legion (1996-2004).  She's the daughter of Dawn Allen Ognats, one of the "Tornado Twins", so Jenni is the grand-daughter of Barry Allen and the cousin of Bart Allen (Kid Flash, formerly Impulse).

XS was one of the more appealling new members of this Legion incarnation.  She is currently lost somewhere in the timestream with most of her fellow Legionnaires (making way for the Waid reboot), but it's interesting to see her in the proposed animated Legion.  Perhaps the show needs a dedicated speedster, though I suspect her ancestry will be retconned to Wally West rather than Barry.

I would prefer a more realistic approach, more now that the JLU show has ended (what a mazing final fight between supes and darkseid). but who knows maybe would be a great series.

The sketches are just too stylized for me, but I guess, wait and see...

I don't care about that, as long as it teaches children that the REAL Superboy is a young Superman and his teenage name is Clark Kent.
