Core Members of the Legion of Super-Heroes:

Moondragon (II): Scotty Richards (in full Susan Katherine Richards-Summers, but she dropped her mother's name after her parents split) is a telepath, and a pretty powerful and versatile one. She is not a reality warping telekinetic, as both of her parents were, and really wishes people would stop making the assumption that she has that sort of power. She trained with Titanian Eternals before they departed the solar system, and retains the "keys" to their abandoned moonbase. Rarely speaks when she can communicate telepathically.

Static: Virgil Hawkins, along with his twin sister Sharon and their older "cousin" Homer, was exposed to a chemical agent in the episode known as "the Big Bang", granting all of them electrical powers. (Why they all received the same powers, unlike any other individuals exposed to the mutagen, is a great mystery.) Virgil uses his heroically, while Homer has used his to rise up in the underworld of their hometown of Dakota. (Sharon focuses on her schooling.) He is not related to Black Lightning, and really wishes people would stop making that assumption.

Polaris (II): Rocco Crane claims to have developed his magnetic powers through origin chasing, having consumed a lethal dose of chemicals in hopes of gaining some superpower. He's gained a bit of maturity since then, and tries to educate people about the dangers of such pursuits, without much success. He is not related to Magneto or his younger daughter Polaris, and really wishes people would stop making that assumption ... but would rather they did that than find out that he is related to Neal Emerson, aka Doctor Polaris, and to Jonathan Crane, aka Scarecrow.

TripliKate: Kathy Darko (born Lorna Madrox) possesses the power to divide into three individuals who maintain a constant mental link with each other. She is also a highly trained martial artist and detective. When not divided, her brain processes information roughly three times faster than a normal human being. While her divided selves are very similar, they are not the same person, and have distinctive perspectives and opinions that they don't share with her unified self. She is the granddaughter of Jamie Madrox, and doesn't particularly mind if people know it. She does not do the sorts of things you're imagining.

Danny Phantom: Young Danny Fenton, he was just fourteen when his parents built a very strange machine, designed to view a world unseen. When it didn't quite work, his folks, they just quit, but then Danny took a look inside of it, and there was a great big flash, everything just changed, and his molecules got all rearranged. When he first woke up, he realized he had snow white hair, and glowing green eyes, he could walk through walls, disappear, and fly; he was much more unique than the other guys. And it was then that he knew what he had to do: he had to stop all the ghosts that were coming through. He's here to fight, for me and you!

Miss Martian: M'gann M'orzz, a White Martian (descended from Durlan colonists) who poses as a Green Martian (descended from Skrull colonists) as her values are more in line with the latter. (Currently, the two species are engaged in a cold war with each other, with the Green Martians supported by extramartian allies.) She can alter her appearance at will, and gain the benefits of other species' physiologies by transforming her own to resemble them, most notably gaining the classic Kryptonian abillities. She is not related to the Martian Manhunter, but wishes that she was. She has no idea that R.J. Brande is her father.

Ultra Boy: Uses the name Jonah Kent, he is a partially successful clone of Superman who is naturally invulnerable but can otherwise only use one of the classic Kryptonian abilities at any time. A hellraiser and thrillseeker who nonetheless has a good heart and is much smarter than he usually acts, he has been described as 'David Addison with superpowers'. Has a complicated and somewhat fraught set of relationships with Bethany Stark (CEO of Stark-Fujikawa), Knockout (an Apokoliptian warrior), and Shiiko Kotobuki.
