    There is some exploration on the prison they're in, which definitely is amusing as it's the old dome piece we've seen since the 70"s, except now it's owned and operated by Oliver Queen. There isn't a lot of background on the whole piece overall through as the focus is mostly on Heatwave and what he has to go through prior to the perfect tool arriving in a mule for him to escape with. The prison side of it takes up most of the issue and it does work well as Heatwave has the whole thing figured out, which of course means that he's going to have some real problems along the way as things never go according to plan. Still, it's an interesting start and the book definitely makes him an interesting character to watch from a psychological standpoint. Read Full Review

    Fortunately, Rodney Buchemi and Artur Fujita do well in their penciling and coloring duties, respectively. Action sequences are brought off in an exciting, colorful way and are juxtaposed nicely with grim images of prison life. When Glass finally gets around to his grand reveal, Buchemi is up to the task, creating some truly shocking images. It's these images that make the reveal work and keep the book from feeling entirely pedestrian. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jun 17, 2011

    "Flashpoint: Legion of Doom" #1 is ultimately a not-impressive start to the mini-series. We've had much better ones already, and if anything this makes me less enthused for Glass's upcoming "Suicide Squad" in September. Maybe the remaining two parts will pick up the quality, but overall it's a rocky first issue. With some minor fixes this could have been much better. Read Full Review

    You know the signs of a bad read when you see them, and they're all over the place here. Consider this another tie-in falling into the Dropped List. Read Full Review
