Originally ascribed to the Holy Roman Empire, a Legion comprised anywhere between 3000 to 6000 infantry soldiers and 100-200 cavalry troops. In the 30th and 31st centuries, the term was more commonly applied to the super-hero team known as the Legion of Super-Heroes.

Limited Series

A Limited Series is a term referring to a comic book series with a set finite number of issues. A limited series differs from an ongoing series in that the number of intended issues is determined before production of the series, and differs from a one shot in that it is composed of multiple issues. It is still different from a finite series in that the number of issues is pre-determined while the latter has no definite number of issues set which could run for a number of years before it ends. Depending on the length of the series, it may also be known as a Miniseries or Maxiseries.
