The Pantheon of Heroes (a.k.a. the Pantheon of Super Heroes) is a 30th-century superhero team based on the Legion of Super-Heroes (former Legion artist Dave Cockrum drew the cover for the Pantheon's first story) and introduced in Big Bang Comics.

Fictional team history[edit]

The Pantheon is a team in the 30th century inspired by Ultragirl and were based in Ultiman's hometown Empire City. Their HQ was a space craft and later a citadel. Each year, they have auditions for new members. They have time traveling technology (first "Time Pills" than "Time Belts"). This allowed Ultragirl to join the group. She later could come to the group via "time cube".
