In the comics field, the Bierbaums are primarily known for their work on DC Comics' long-running future superhero series The Legion of Superheroes, on which the duo rose from prominent members of the fan-community to actual, pre-eminent writers of the series throughout the 1980s and 1990s. The couple actually first met as members of the series' fan club.
