First I gotta talk about The First. I'm not really sure if she could be considered one of the Legends or not, but she's still big. She's what made people know what was going on.
First of all, the First wasn't really the first super-powered person, we KNOW that. She was just the first to do something so extremely spectacular that the world as a whole took almost immediate notice.
The First used her powers once. That use killed an entire Bulmeer shuttle, herself and a whole lot of the city she was in at the time.
She is one of the Heroes of that war back then....too bad she didn't know what she was doing, imagine if she lived.
Anyway, next there is Misfit.
Misfit was a teenager in Washington DC and so powerful that the aliens avoided her when they could.
She flies, turns invisible and she does something really weird with energy that sort of tears apart large areas of space. She held the Washington aliens at bay (and occasionally looted for her own purposes) until John Kelley came back to the States and got her straightened out.
John Kelly is THE hero of our age.
Nobody really knows just how powerful he is because he kinda doesn't use his powers often (he moves earth and rock and dirt around), but all the experts say that his power potential reads like a star compared to almost all the rest of us.
He was an FBI agent in 1997 and was in Japan for some reason (I didn't even know that the FBI operated in Japan) when the invasion happened.
Because of Kelly, my country was spared the worst ravages of the war. He brought our military and hybrids together and denied the aliens from ever getting a solid hold anywhere in Japan.
He is an international hero and inspiration. And to us Japanese, he has a place with our greatest heroes. The Emperor himself offered to marry Kelly into the Imperial Line.
Mr. Chen knows John Kelly and I'm sure...I'm sure I'll get to meet him eventually.
Oh my. What will I say? What will I wear? Must remember to bring my autograph book for that.
Oh to think that I could meet Kelly. John Kelly. I mean The Gremlin is cool...very, very cool (and cute), but Kelly. Oh my goodness.
Can you get closer to meeting the kami than meeting John Kelly? Without dying I mean. Oh!
Anyway, the Legends fought off the first alien invasion and revealed that superheroes existed.
