    Is any of this deep? No, but it sure is pretty, and full of incident. Read Full Review

    Yet, this series seems to be focusing on using nostalgic elements like the Happy Harbor cave, the crystal ball, and the location of Oa at the center of the universe to appeal to longtime older readers like myself. The problem is that being able to relive my childhood only goes so far in satisfying me. I also want a good story that entertains the adult I've become who wants more in a story than bright costumes, fight scenes, and bad science.

It's not even as though the series has a decent baddie to enjoy, as Superboy-Prime's motivation as a villain still amounts to no more than the desire to be villainous, which is about as shallow a motivation as I could imagine. Those readers who are hoping for even a tangential connection to Final Crisis will be disappointed by the continuing lack of relevance to that event, and even Legion fans may feel short-changed after paying $3.99 for an issue of meandering plotting and repetitive action that doesn't really take the story anywhere new over the course of its 31 pages. Anyone can write a love-letter to the Legion that will give established fans a warm, fuzzy glow: the trick is giving new readers a reason to care, and I don't think that Johns achieves that in this second is Read Full Review
