This August Legion of Super-Hero fans are going to have the best of both worlds -- or maybe three worlds! Superstars Geoff Johns and George Perez team to present Final Crisis: Legion of Three Worlds, a five-part tale that rocks the 31st century to it's core as the Legion of Super-Heroes are pit against their longtime adversary Time Trapper, and his ultimate weapon, Superboy-Prime. Perez is known for his painstakingly detailed artwork that made him a comics household name when he was drawing the New Teen Titans. Perez told THE PULSE he's wanted to work on the Legion of Super-Heroes for years, and is glad to finally have this opportunity.
Prior to this newest crisis threatening the cosmos, Perez teamed with Geoff Johns for a portion of 2005's Infinite Crisis. But his most famous crisis work -- up to this point in time, of course, has to be 1985's Crisis on Infinite Earths. Prior to this point, although a big fan of the Legion of Super-Heroes, Perez had only covered one of DC's oldest superteams a few times in the '80s, and featured them as guest stars here and there. He never worked on the ongoing series or a miniseries specifically about this team. However, the artist is no stranger to having to illustrate a multitude of characters in the confines of any given story. With his last assignment, The Brave and the Bold, Perez drew dozens of heroes and villains each issue. What sets Perez apart from the pack, though, is that each of his characters looks distinctive and unique -- not just like talking heads with different colored hair or masks.
