Spotlight on Super-Team Family:The Lost Issues!

An introduction to a web-site all Legion fans should check out by Emsley Wyatt

Imagine living in a world where all comic characters were “under one roof;” where you could walk into a comic store and find a book in which your favorite characters could team up or battle without regard for which company owns what.  

Well, we don’t live in that world, but we can get a tantalizing peek at what it might look like thanks to Ross over at The Super-Team Family: the Lost Issues

Ross takes characters and situations from comic books, puts them in the blender, and creates some pretty tasty concoctions. And he puts a new one up every freakin’ day.  

Iron Man meets Green Lantern.  The Justice League battles Ultron. Adam Strange and Doctor Strange (Long-lost brothers).  And one of my personal faves, The Creeper versus The Green Goblin.

And it isn’t just the “big boys” you’ll find here.  No character or book is too obscure to escape Ross’s treatment.  The X-Files and Swamp Thing.  Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Vampirella. Quantum Leap and Sliders.

Some of the covers are laugh-out-loud funny.  Others make you wish that you could actually read the darn story.  But this is, after all, a Legion of Super-Heroes site.  So let’s a look at some of his Legion-related covers. 

The most recent, featured as our head-line act which inspired this article: The Legion Vs. The Avengers….
I’d buy that for a dollar all right.

An earlier one shows the Legion meeting up with the Silver Surfer.

Typically, Ross primarily used characters from Marvel and DC but, as I noted earlier he sometimes does go farther afield and uses characters like The Rocketeer....! 

Some solo Legionnaires also get their own cover time, like Timber Wolf:

Karate Kid:

And Ferro Lad....!

Even ancillary characters aren’t left out.  Such as this one featuring Insect Queen:

The Subs....

Even the Super-Pets get their moment to shine. 

Even villains like the Fatal Five show up, here battling the Fantastic Four:

So if you’ve got some time to kill, head over to Ross’s site.  I visit it daily, just to see what he’s done now.  You can search for your favorite hero, group or villain or just hit “Surprise Me”.  You can leave comments, or even make suggestions.  Have fun.


  1. I've been visiting that site daily for a few years too! I'ts the only other blog I have bookmarked besides this one. SO cool.
