From a press release:

Burbank, CA, (May 27, 2008) – Superman and the rest of the teenage gang of heroes are back in action when Warner Home Video (WHV) and the Kids’ WB! release 'Legion of Super Heroes: Volume 3' on DVD September 9, 2008. The DVD will include 5 exciting episodes from the first season of the smash hit, Legion of Super Heroes, which currently airs on Saturday mornings at 10:00 am and ranks among the top five shows on the Kids WB! this season.  The third volume will be available for $14.97 SRP.  Order due date is August 5, 2008.

The 'Legion of Super Heroes', a three-time Emmy Awards nominee features the teen Heroes Superman, Lightning Lad, Saturn Girl, Timber Wolf, Brainiac 5, Bouncing Boy and Phantom Girl as they fight crime and protect mankind from a swarm of devious villains.  In Legion of Super Heroes: Volume 3, Superman’s time in the 31st century draws to a close, prompting the Legion to hold its annual tryouts for a fresh crop of heroes to replace him.  The audition stars off with The Substitutes, a wacky band of rejects, and a mischievous wizard from planet Xerok who wreaks havoc in New Metropolis leaving only Phantom Girl to save the day.  The adventure continues as a new member, Ferro Lad, is inducted into the Legion to help Lightning Lad defend his home from an onslaught of cosmic storms.  The action-packed episodes conclude with the Legion’s biggest threat yet: The Sun-Eater, a galaxy destroying weapon of mass destruction.  Watch to see which Legionnaire makes the ultimate sacrifice in a grueling battle to defend the Universe and save mankind.
