History

Dealing with a historical anachronism, the Legends time traveled to Vietnam in 1967, locating a mysterious presence deep inside the jungles of Vietnam, responsible for the disappearances of United States Army soldiers that were sent to fight in the Vietnam War. The presence turned out to be Grodd, who has been recruiting both the Americans and the Vietnamese into his Ông Trời Mới (Vietnamese for "New God") cult. Grodd also intended to kill President L. B. Johnson with Soviet Union land mines, engulfing the world in even greater war. The Legends eventually succeeded in defeating Grodd, saving Johnson and making peace with Mick Rory's father Dick Rory, who commanded a squad of American soldiers.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • Vietnam is the easternmost country on the Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia. Following a Japanese occupation in the 1940s, the Vietnamese fought French rule in the First Indochina War, eventually expelling the French in 1954. Thereafter, Vietnam was divided politically into two rival states, North Vietnam (officially the Democratic Republic of Vietnam), and South Vietnam (officially the Republic of Vietnam). Conflict between the two sides intensified in what is known as the Vietnam War, with heavy intervention by the United States on the side of South Vietnam from 1965 to 1973. The war ended with a North Vietnamese victory in 1975.
