League of Super-Assassins
- League of Super-Assassins
The League of Super-Assassins is a team of fictional DC Comics villains that fought against the Legion of Super-Heroes.
Members of this group of super powered beings came from the planet Dryad. Tricked into thinking that the Legion of Super-Heroes were somehow connected to the destruction of their planet they set out to destroy the Legion. Controlling them was the "Dark Man" which was actually a clone of Tharok, the evil genius of the Fatal Five. The "Dark Man" subjected the youths to experiments giving them super powers.
Blok -- a silicon-based life form with a rock-like humanoid appearance and increased mass and strength. He also was able to absorb certain types of energy and had a life span much longer than that of humans.
Silver Slasher -- a female with a metallically enhanced body and razor sharp fingers. She was also able to spin her body at increased speeds and her metallic body gave her strength and hardness to cut through most substances.
Titania -- A super strong female with increased invulnerability. Her strength rivaled Mon-El or Superboy.
Lazon -- He can turn into any form of light.
Mist Master -- Can turn into any form of gas or vapor
Neutrax -- He sits in a flying chair much like Metron of the New Gods. He has the power to neutralize others powers for short periods of time.
After capture by the Legion, Blok chose to aid the Legion against the Dark Man and was offered membership in the Legion.
Many of the other members were either released from prison or escaped and joined the Legion of Super-Villains, starting with Legion of Super-Heroes (Baxter) issues 1-5.
The League of Super-Assassins was originally created as rough analogies for the membership of Marvel Comics' X-Men lineup at the time, created by mutual agreement between the separate books' writers to have an inter-company crossover by proxy. The Shi'ar Imperial Guard was an homage to the Legion of Super-Heroes which appeared in "X-Men" #107.
