DC Comics confirmed for Newsarama at Baltimore Comic Con that Legion of Super-Heroes, the ongoing series that relaunched the fan-favorite, teenage team from the future, will be canceled with issue #50 after a four-year run.

“We’re going to bring a close to the Legion of Super-Heroes now,” said DC Senior VP and Executive Editor Dan DiDio. “There’s a lot going on with the characters. I thought that [writer] Jim [Shooter] and [artist] Francis [Manapul] have done a terrific job with the series, and ’50’ seemed like a really nice number to bring this series to a conclusion.”

However, Legion characters aren’t going away, DiDio said. “We’ve got a lot of plans and a lot of thought for the Legion right now, but coming out of the Legion of 3 Worlds, we’re going to let the characters rest for a little bit and see where we go from there,” he said.

Shooter, the current writer of the Legion of Super-Heroes ongoing comic, told Newsarama in Baltimore that he found out about a month ago that the series was canceled with Issue #50.
