Polar Boy

Not Bipolar Boy but Polar Boy, real name Brek Bannin who grew up on the planet Tharr, in the 30th Century. Tharr is considered one of the hottest inhabited planets in the galaxy. Brek's family live in the hottest valley of the planet where the inhabitants developed the power to create super cold, snow, and ice as a way to combat the persistent heat. He first tried out for the Legion, but was unable to control his powers. He was rejected because members felt his powers might interfere in missions. He became a supporting character as leader of the Substitute Heroes before earning his place in the Legion. 
On the New 52 Polar Boy seems to be very similar to the Silver Age characterization.
The BG northern lights is from the website urban-review.com
I would like to dedicate this piece to my pal Eric Canete for being a great source of inspiration and all the amazing art.

Invisible Kid

The first Invisible Kid was Lyle Norg, an early member of the Legion who gained his powers from a chemical serum he invented. He first appeared in Action Comics #267. His scientific aptitude meant he got along well with the super-intelligent Brainiac 5. His abilities made him a valuable asset to the Legion Espionage Squad, of which he was a permanent member. Norg also served one term as Legion Leader. He was killed by the monster Validus of the Fatal Five in Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes #203 (July/August 1974).
The original BG was done by Sabra Haskell, I changed it a bit to go with Invisible Kid. 
I'm currently working on some more Legionnaires, I think I'm almost half way done with my list. 
Any character you would like to see?

Chameleon Girl

The wife of Colossal Boy and member of the Legion of Super-Heroes. Being a native of Durla, Chameleon Girl has the power of shape-shifting.
Yera is from Earth, in the 30th century. Yera's family had migrated to Earth early on so Yera was actually born on Earth and not on Durla. This was enough to alter her perception of identity. She is also an accomplished actress and once posed as Legionnaire Shrinking Violet for an extended period of time. Chameleon girl is currently a member of Legion Lost, she will soon be facing off against an army of Harvest's minions. After surviving the Culling, the Legionnaires managed to get a hold of a time bubble and returned home to find it in ruin. Yera's musings suggest that she knows something that the others don't and she has a mission of her own to accomplish. Recently, she was subdued by the members of Project Metamerican alongside Tyroc.
The BG is called Blue Lab by Rapha Gutierrez. I hardly retouched it. I wanted a light color in the BG to pop out her sexy shapes. I asked myself, is this border line too sexy for a super heroine? She is an actress after all, most of female actresses are pretty hot, so why not. 
Happy 11/11 btw...

Infectious Lass

Drura Sehpt is from Somahtur, a planet whose inhabitants' bodies are home to colonies of micro-organisms. These microbe colonies can quickly infect other living bio-organism's while the host remains unaffected. Drura was the first of her race to bravely travel to the United Planets, to see places that her people were always concerned possibly infecting. Drura was another of the Legion of Super-Heroes' rejected that would go on to join theLegion of Substitute HeroesPolar Boy, who was the leader of the Substitute Legion, was impressed with how Drura could induce illnesses. The BG futuristic-living-room-interior-22262-hd-wallpapers-background which I did went over, it seemed to match her vibe.

Blok is a silicon-based life-form from the planet Dryad with a naturally high density and strength. Carbon based humanoids had come to settle the planet, not realizing that the world was already inhabited by the silicon natives. Blok's people watched the carbon humanoids for a time, and once they determined that they meant no harm, revealed themselves. The two species helped each other and shared the planet. An undetermined time later, Dryad's core became unstable and eventually was destroyed. Blok and his friends misinterpreted the Legion of Super-Heroes rescue efforts and assumed the heroes had destroyed their world. Blok first appeared as a member of the League of Super-Assassins. He was manipulated by The Dark Man, a clone of Tharok, into attacking the Legion of Super-Heroes. When he learned that the Legionnaires were not his enemies, he turned on the Assassins and his former master, the Dark Man, and eventually joined the Legion. Blok was killed later on by Roxxas, who tracked him down to the Puppet Planetoid and carried out his mission, delivering Blok's dismembered corpse to the ranch home of Garth and Imra Ranzz on Winath. On the Retroboot New Earth he is the Black Witch's guardian. Forgive me if I don't post every single detail of this character, it will take too long to write.
The BG by Tory M. and dust FX by Matthew Timms were both retouched to go with Blok a little smoother.
