Who's Who: Harmonia

by Siskoid

Real Name: Harmonia Li
Super-Power(s): Control over the elements; possible immortality.
Planet of Origin: Earth
Legion Seniority: Harmonia was the seventh Legion recruit after the Retroboot.

Legion Log
Harmonia Li is perhaps millennia old, a Chinese woman with elemental powers who at some point migrated to an other-dimensional and eternal land called Utopia, "the world of wisdom" (where she might have gained immortality), and studied with the great teacher Master Kong (aka Confucius).

By the 31st Century, Harmonia worked at the Time Institute on Titan. When her colleague Adajapu tried to view the origins of the universe, a fierce backlash destroyed the environmental controls over Titan and destroyed the moon, despite Saturn Girl's best efforts. Harmonia migrated with other survivors to Naltor, where Brainiac 5 sought her help in repairing his Time Bubble, at which time she intimated that she was from "old Earth."

After "Titanfall", Harmonia reacted to the mayhem wrought by the Legion of Super-Villains on Colu and around the universe by saying it was her fault; they really sought her knowledge of Utopia. As they closed in, she revealed her innate elemental power and led the Legion to the interdimensional world, saving it from the LSV.

Under still unknown circumstances, Harmonia was awarded full Legion membership, along with four cadets, when several Legionnaires were lost to the time stream and presumed dead, where she quickly became Brainiac 5's right hand.

  1. How I miss Francis Portela art ...

    Sad to be reminded that she is the last Legionnaire. Feels like a million years ago.

  2. So now you can start profiles of people rejected at Legion try-outs!!

  3. This is still a Who's Who feature, so up next: villains and allies from the original Who's Who series!

  4. The "Who's Who"'s should be labeled so they can all be accessed at once in a search. Please consider this for future entries. Thx!

  5. Simply click the Who's Who label at the bottom of the page!

  6. Another lame character !

    Jim Lee wants more Asian characters !

  7. Frankly, so would I. I really don't think Jim Lee had anything to do with it.

  8. Hate to be that guy but you guys kinda forgot about Night Girl for the "Who's Who" on Legion members.

  9. No we didn't. She was never an active Legionnaire. She'll show up in our current series of Villains and Allies.

    1. You sure? A lot of the Geoff Johns Legion related stuff I read seems to indicate Night Girl was a member during the retroboot.

    2. Nope, she was made a reserve member, along with Sizzle and Turtle.
