All-Time Legion Roster

I try to keep a master list of Legionnaires on this site. It's surprisingly difficult to decide just what kind of list it should be, but, anyway, here's this one. Please let me know if there's anything I got straight wrong or any detail I left out that's too major to be left out. Also, when I was listing continuities, I typically didn't mention "animated" unless it was specifically informative to do so.

I think the next thing I might do to develop this is to distinguish between what continuities a character existed in and what continuities they were a Legionnaire in.

" surprisingly difficult " It does not surprise me at all how difficult it must be.

I cannot believe that Chuck Taine's middle name is Foster. That is HILARIOUS. I assume that is some writer's witty retcon?

Yeah, I forget when that first appeared. I seem to remember the Substitute Podcasters tracked it down once.

What does 2b, 4b, etc. indicate — the "b", that is. "Boot" — reboot, threeboot, fourboot, retroboot? Think I just answered my question.

Do you feel the need to differentiate the multiple animated continuities? JL United, the Legion's own show, Young Justice, the upcoming movie, plus um, the Super Friends episode redo, the Star Boy one, and were they in the episode that the Lego figure came with? (I have it on the shelf but have not watched it.)

And the 2-3 live action continuities (Smallville, Supergirl, Flash).

B is boot, yes.

In this list, except for unusual circumstances, I'm restricting things to the major continuities:

original (includes 5YL, SW6, retroboot)
reboot
threeboot
animated (LSH animated series, LSH31C comics series)

Everything else, I'll only mention it if it introduces a Legionnaire who otherwise wouldn't be included.

Oh, and fourboot, of course; didn't intend to leave that out.

Wasn't Nemesis Kid a Legionnaire in the original continuity for something like a day?

Yeah, but I don’t count that. If someone joins and quits or turns traitor in the same story, that’s not like really being on the team.Otherwise there’d be a couple dozen villains on this list and I don’t want ‘em.
