Kono is a fictional character in the DC Universe. She became a member of the Legion of Super-Heroes in the 30th century, during the "Five Years Later" era.

Fictional character biography[edit]

Brita An'nan is a native of the planet Sklar, a matriarchial society where technological piracy is common. Brita's mother, a pirate, saved the life of the mother of Mysa Nal (the White Witch). In return, Brita was granted the power to shift mass through time, thereby making objects more or less dense. When Brita was five, she and her mother were attacked by a group of Khunds. Brita made the clothing of the Khundish warriors intangible, embarrassing them tremendously and making Brita their permanent enemy.

Years later, Brita became a smuggler on the near-lawless planet Rimbor, partnered with Jo Nah, the former Ultra Boy. When Reep Daggle (Chameleon Boy) and Rokk Krin (Cosmic Boy) reformed the Legion of Super-Heroes, Brita joined them, adopting the code name "Kono". She brought along her large feral pet "Furball", unaware until much later that he was actually Brin Londo, the former Timber Wolf.

Post-Zero Hour[edit]

In the Post-Zero Hour continuity, Kono does not join the team and remains a Sklar pirate, whom the Legion must apprehend.

Post-Infinite Crisis[edit]

No one named Brita An'nan or Kono appears in the "Threeboot" version of the Legion. However, the events of the Infinite Crisis miniseries have restored a close analogue of the Pre-Crisis Legion to continuity, as seen in "The Lightning Saga" story arc in Justice League of America and Justice Society of America, and in the "Superman and the Legion of Super-Heroes" story arc in Action Comics. Kono was seen briefly when multiple versions of the Legion battled Superboy-Prime, the Time Trapper and the Legion of Super-Villains.[1]
