    That high rating doesn't mean that disappointment isn't looming in the future. I'm not saying that will happen either, but the possibility exists. I love the canvas this story is laid out on. I just hope no one defaces it by splashing a bucket of harsh paint over it. What the final conclusion will be is what has me excited about this series because I'm uncertain and feeling the tension.

    Still, this first issue had all the makings of a classic series, and if it brings in new fans that allow for a new monthly Legion title, all the better. Read Full Review

    So, theres a past Legion of Three Worlds case, and Im hoping that it will be revealed here as the Time Trapper sends the three Legions into the past to meet up with their Destiny. Read Full Review

    Whether or not this series directly links to Final Crisis remains to be seen. In the meantime, I will simultaneously say, Shame on DC for slapping Final Crisis on this title while applaud them for doing so because, hopefully, more people will pick it up and find themselves pleasantly surprised like I was. Sure, this issue has a lot going on, but Johns handles it well and has a solid first outing with this series. Read Full Review

    Finally, the closing panels of the issue provide an unexpected twist, with Superman's approach to the threat of Superboy-Prime making a refreshing change from the kind of mindless violence and conflict that accompanies many "epic" crossover stories like this one. The idea of redemption for one of the most disliked characters in recent DC history might sound like a pretty tall order. However, if Johns can pull it off, this could turn out to be quite an enjoyable story that functions above the level of a mere nostalgia-fest for Legion fans. Read Full Review
