The White Witch - Canson Cutie

The White Witch © DC Comics

Here is the first of five Legion of Super-Heroes related Canson Cuties I am doing for Michael. All five will be based on the Curt Swan/Adventure Comics era of the Legion. First up is The White Witch. Her sister is the Legionnaire Dream Girl.

Though the White Witch wasn't a Legionnaire at the time of this incarnation, she did assist them in one of their biggest two part stories. This story included (maybe) all of the Legion, including Supergirl, the Legion of Substitute Heroes, flashbacks to Krypton, the introduction of the Devil's Dozen, included a wink and a nod to Spider-Man, predicted the death of Ferro Lad, the Legion of Super-Pets, Smallville, Lightning Lad getting a new arm, Bouncing Boy's power restored, Matter-Eater Lad cured from a ailment he got in an earlier two parter, a teen age Mister Mxyzptlk, and the return of Star Boy and Dream Girl to the Legion ranks. A story that included characterization in 47 pages. I think all that would take 36 issues these days. And some of those sub-plots would be forgotten. :)

Thanks to Michael for this commission. This was done in ink, color pencil and fluid acrylics on an 11" x 17" sheet of Canson Mi-Teintes paper.

This is Post #1159
