Legends was a six-issue  series that centered around the villain, Darkseid, and his scheme to weaken the integrity of Earth’s heroes by destabilising their “legendary” status. The result of which, yielded a massive portion of Earth’s population turning against those they once worshipped. Earth’s iconic super-heroes are forced to operate outside the law to expose Darkseid’s scheme.

Legends was the first major crossover event to follow in the wake of the reality-altering Crisis on Infinite Earths event and acted as a unique jumping-on point for several spin-off titles including a revamped Justice League, a re-imagined Suicide Squad and the all new post crisis version of Wonder Woman.
