New Johnny DC Legion of Super-Heroes book

DC has announced a new Johnny DC book to go with the Legion of Super-Heroes cartoon on Kids WB. The Legion of Super-Heroes in the 31st Century, with an opening story by J. (Teen Titans Go!) Torres and Chynna Clugston-Flores, debuts on April 18. Can't wait.

Of interest in a Newsarama interview with writer J. Torres was this note that confirms that internally they were considering this a Superboy project at one point.

NRAMA: And just for continuity buffs - that guy with the S on his chest – Superboy, or a young Superman?

JT: They started off calling him Superboy in the scripts and other show material I was given for reference, but somewhere along the way it was changed to Superman. I'm assuming it's a legal thing. Or they wanted to tie it into the new movie franchise. Or both.
