Nicknamed LXG by the misbegotten movie version, League didn't start as such a challenge. Initially, Moore envisioned a superhero team drawn from characters of Victorian literature, including Dracula's Mina Harker and fictional game hunter Alan Quartermain. Moore and O'Neill packed the first two volumes with literary in-jokes, but still delivered ripping yarns with the League fighting Fu Manchu and Professor Moriarty in the first half and H.G. Wells' Martian invaders in the second.
