Zuun sometimes spelt Zoon is a fictional planet in the DC Comics universe. It is the homeworld of the Legionnaire Brin Londo a.k.a. Timber Wolf.

History[edit]

Brin Londo was raised on Zuun by his scientist father Dr. Mar Londo. Zuun was a human mining colony settled sometime after the 21st century.

The planet has been ravaged by centuries of extremely thorough exploitation. A highly ductile and malleable metal known as Zuunium can be found here. Mining this rare metal has devastated the planet, poisoning its seas and fatally polluting its atmosphere.[1]

The residents of Zuun live in small communities within the caverns which criss cross beneath the surface. Zuun orbits within a highly unstable triple star system.

The Planet was mostly abandoned leaving only the poor miners who were left to mutate into monstrous forms.[2]

In other media[edit]

Television[edit]

  • In the Legion of Super Heroes episode "Brain Drain", the Legion of Superheroes members Superman and Timber Wolf journeyed to Zuun to cure an ailing Brainiac 5 with Zunium. Zuun orbits a red sun so when Superman had his powers, forcing him to wear a containment suit.
