    This is quickly becoming one of the best books that DC has to offer. In fact, I'd put it in the top three. Read Full Review

    It might be some work for new readers to sort out, but the rewards of a fine story make it well worth the effort. Read Full Review

    I'll probably never label myself a hardcore Legion fan, but it's books like this that show me what I've been missing over the years. Levitz goes a long way towards making the Legion fun and accessible for newcomers without alienating the long-term fans who have followed the team through its numerous incarnations. Read Full Review

    Between this book and the tales of the classic Legion over in Adventure Comics, one can only assume that Levitz is having as much fun writing these stories as fans of the Legion are having reading them. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jun 23, 2010

    It's not a bad issue, but "Legion of Super-Heroes" #2 is lacking a bit of punch. Hopefully we'll see stories moving forward a bit more next month; it's nice to see so many familiar faces back, but I'm all right with some of them showing up a little less often if we can have faster moving plot lines. If this book moves too slow, I worry for how it's going to hang onto its readership. "Legion of Super-Heroes" fans are patient, but we shall see. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jun 24, 2010

    Wow, this book wasscattered. There are several seeds of interest going on here (the fate of Mekt, the missing Ranzz children, Tyroc's return to duty,the LSHer's response to the turd in their punchbowl) but it's all going on at once, making thissecond issue fall prey to the worstproblems that usually plague a FIRST issue. Yildiray Cinar's art is excellent,especially on Shadow Lass and Phantom Girl, and Paul Levitz hasmanaged to keep several key characterizations from his last run in place, but what does it all in for me is the shoehorning of night-on everybody into the book. It seems likeGarth will be giving up on his search for big brother awful quickly, and several of the other plot hooks that thisseries was launched with (coming out of Legion of Three Worlds and the Adventure Comics strip) may not get fully fleshedout in the new Levitz era. It's not as awkward as last issue, but there's still a lotofground to cover before I say that the Legion has once again regained it's stride. It Read Full Review
