The Advena Legion with President Luthor Names 

In March of 2017, President Luthor announced his 'Earth Hospitality Act' which popularized the term 'Xenohuman' and created the 'Advena Legion'. Though the measure has yet to be officially approved, it's actually being well received and is expected to be made into law soon.

The Advena Act creates the possibility for alien refugees and travelers to become official citizens of the United States (and thereby Earth) through a process of enlisting in a public service, like fighting crime as a member of the 'Advena Legion' (or more colloquially known as the 'Legion of Superheroes' or 'Legion of Alien Heroes') or working at NASA or for the NSA, DEO, or even just building infrastructure or whatever.

Applicants for the program are monitored by the DEO and are assigned a handler. Their handler determines where their skills, talents, powers, etc. would be best utilized and then monitors their progress after placement. If they fulfill the terms of their placement for a specific period of time, they are given official citizenship and even have the option of assuming a normal human identity if they so choose (and are so able to disguise themselves as such). Once placed, aliens in good standing are given 'Xenohuman' status under the law and are afforded all the rights and privileges of a normal human.

The Advena Legion is the big flagship of the program and while the rest of the program has yet to really be implemented and enacted, awaiting legislation and funding, the Advena Legion is already being formed under the Executive Branch of the US government.

     In General 
  • Adaptational Backstory Change: They are a group of aliens that, by becoming heroes, are granted an Earth's citizenship by Lex Luthor instead of being a group of heroes from the 30th Century.
  • Adaptation Name Change:
    • Rather than being called the 'Legion of Superheroes', they're given the name of Advena Legion.
    • With the exception of Saturn Girl, Timber Wolf, Sensor, Shrinking Violet and Night Girl, they all go either by original or alternate names.
  • Brought to You by the Letter "S": Rather than using the "L" symbol used in the comics and other adaptations in media, the Legion has the "A" symbol with the star on it instead.
  • Corporate-Sponsored Superhero: In a sense they're sponsored by President Lex Luthor and part of his "Earth Hospitality Act" which popularized the term 'Xenohuman' and created the 'Advena Legion'.
  • Meaningful Name: The Advena Legion's name came from the latin word foreigner, immigrant, visitor from abroad, migrant (bird), newcomer, interloper as they're aliens given amnesty on Earth.
  • Human Aliens: Some of them aren't that different from humans.
  • Superhero Packing Heat: Each Legionnaire wield a handgun so they can defend themselves in case their powers go haywire.
  • Utility Belt: Unlike the other versions who wield Flight rings instead they wield The Gravity Dampening Belt aka "Ring", which also serve as communicators and provide the force-fields necessary for Legionnaires to function in space.

Recruited Members

     Codex (Querl Drox) 
Originally a body backup of Brainiac called "Brainiac 5" was a Coluan body outfitted with cybernetics, but shelved and never activated due to having a difficulty to suppress identity... until 2017 when the US Government revealed they had obtained him and renamed him 'Codex' and fitted him into the roster of the Advena Legion.

  • Adaptation Name Change: He's not called Brainiac 5. He instead takes the name of Codex.
  • Badass Bookworm: He's the Legion's brains, but he can also throw down when he has to, and is rarely a hindrance when things get physical. Given who some of his teammates and enemies are, this makes him a certified badass.
  • Barrier Warrior: Codex's primary invention is his personal force-shield generator. He wears a belt that projects an impenetrable forcefield around himself; can sometimes extend the field to do more creative things with it.
  • The Chess Master: His super-intelligence is sometimes played this way.
  • Insufferable Genius: He comes off as this to the rest of the Legion at times when his Techno Babble becomes tiresome
  • Mechanical Lifeform: He's an android, but also acts as a human.
  • Science Hero: He is primarily this for the others in the Legion, providing the strategy and tech support for them in battle.
  • The Smart Guy: Fits the role to the Legion.
  • Super Intelligence: Querl has a "12th-level intellect" (each level of intelligence represents a separate thought track, allowing him to think about or solve twelve equations simultaneously), which grants him superhuman calculation skills, amazing memory and exceptional technical know-how.
  • Technopath: His systems are capable of interfacing with technology.

     Valor (Lar Gand) 

  • Flying Brick: Like any Daxamite or Kryptonian who spends much time under a yellow sun.
  • My Species Doth Protest Too Much: Daxamites tend to be xenophobic jerks.
  • The Power of the Sun: As a Daxamite, his cells function like a super battery, hyper metabolizing specific wavelengths of radiation as fuel to enable living functions and/or superhuman abilities. Different wavelengths of radiation have different effects on Lar Gand's physiology and well being, but his cells cannot absorb or utilize all types of radiation.
  • Superpower Lottery: Lar has got powers that are native to all Daxamites if they where in a solar system with a yellow sun, similar to Kryptonians complete of Eye Beams, Flying Brick, Super Breath, Super Speed and Super Strength.

  • Wolverine Claws: Timber Wolf has sharpened claws on each hand.

     Triad (Luornu Durgo) 

  • Duality Motif: She can split into two people, and in some versions has two eyes of different colors. This is strange since 1) she had the ability to split into three before one body was killed, but didn't have three eyes, 2) it's a planetary power and other people from the planet don't have this, and 3) when she splits, each body has two of the same color eyes, making it impossible for her to pretend to not be split when she is.
  • Literal Split Personality: Each of the three duplicates she splits into are semi-individuals with slight differences in personality to the point that they're both one person and yet also like very close sisters.

     Umbra (Tasmia Mallor) 

  • Casting a Shadow: Tasmia can cast dark-fields preventing all light from reaching an area from outside. These can either be complete, effectively rendering useless all light sources within the area, or hollow to allow the interior to be lit. She can also solidify these fields, to use as a more direct weapon. She has the power to create darkness 100 times darker than a moonless night. Her black shadows are impenetrable by light.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: A superheroine with shadow powers. Definitely a good girl.
  • Kill the Lights: Umbra can manipulate darkness and see in the dark, and so often blinds enemies with darkness.
  • Super Senses: She has shadow-sensitive eyes that give her the ability to see in darkness. She can draw strength from the slightest shadow or dark corner. She can also build up her power by wrapping her face in the folds of her cape and shielding her eyes from glare.

     Sensor (Jeka Wynzorr) 
  • Intellectual Animal: Jeka Wynzorr is a giant snake.
  • Master of Illusion: Jeka's powers are based on the senses. When first introduced, she projected illusions. After her powers were increased, her illusions became so realistic that the subject of them could not tell reality from her projections.

     Rigo (Zan Undar) 

     Fera (Jayna Undar) 

     Night Girl (Lyda Jath) 

  • Nigh-Invulnerability: When using this power, she is impervious to harm by extreme forces. If propelled at sufficient force, by either her flight ring or a super-toss, can use her dense body like a human missile, but only in darkness or deep shadow
  • Official Couple: Her Mate Rokk Krinn/Polestar.
  • Required Secondary Powers: She has the secondary ability to see in the dark. Necessary if you fight in the dark.
  • Super Strength: Night Girl has the powers of super-strength, equivalent to that of Superman or Valor lift far in excess of 100 tons, but only in darkness or deep shadow.

     Shrinking Violet (Salu Digby) 

     Alchemist (Jan Arrah) 

  • Power Copying: The sole survivor of the planet Trom, Jan Arrah can transmute elements. Jan could transmute the elements of his own body; he was often exploring the nature of existence as a human-shaped crystal, metal or even wood.

     Chameleon (Reep Yera) 

  • Composite Character: He's combined with both Chameleons of Durla, His name Reep Yera is a portmanteau of Reep Daggle (Chameleon Boy) and Yera Allon (Chameleon Girl)
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Like all Durlans, Reep possesses the ability to transform his body's size, shape and color to mimic any person, creature or object in the universe.

     Dreamer (Nura Nal) 

  • Alliterative Name: Nura Nal.
  • Dreaming of Things to Come: Like all people native to Naltor, Dreamer is clairvoyant, and has the ability to forecast future events based upon visions she sees in her dreams. This ability is 100% accurate in all situations, though there have been occasions when Dreamer has misinterpreted the visions that she sees

     Sizzle (Teela Spuunvll) 

     Ferro (Andrew Nolan) 

  • Chrome Champion: Ferro has the ability to convert the tissue of his entire body into an organic Iron. He is able to transform into this armor-like state at will the process is virtually instantaneous and remain in that form for an as yet undetermined amount of time. If he is rendered unconscious, however, he spontaneously reverts to his normal form.

     Blok 

  • Dishing Out Dirt: Blok's rock-like body gives him superhuman strength and durability. Blok is a silicon-based life form, not carbon-based; he, and other natives of Dryad, are essentially living rock.
  • Immune to Mind Control: He is immune to telepathic attack or possession.
  • Mighty Glacier: His massive size makes him slow and sometimes clumsy.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: He is far more durable than a normal human, and can probably withstand impacts and pressures that could severely injure or kill a human with no discomfort.
  • Super Strength: He is many times stronger than a normal human being, although his strength level is unknown.
