    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Jul 23, 2012

    I don't know if Comet Queen isn't acting on some hidden order by Brainy. She starts to say she was told to do that before she is attacked by Dream Girl. Could Brainy have some hidden agenda, pretending to be knocked out so he can get closer to the genetic database and destroy it? I am going to say yes. I don't think Comet Queen is capable of complex thoughts like betrayal. So overall another good chapter in this Dominator arc. But can it all be wrapped up in next month's conclusion? I truly hope so. Read Full Review

    History lesson aside (I feel like it is part of my mandate to educate, especially with DC from the Bronze and Silver Ages, but really, I'm just a guy who doesn't know when to shut up), this book overall needed more. As the next issue will most likely be the conclusion before the "0" issue month, one can hope that this storyline that started with so much promise, can be resolved in a much better fashion.

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jul 21, 2012

    For all that Paul Levitz does well (little character bits, conversations, chunks of motivation), this issue fails in terms of how little actually happens in it, and a lack of setup for the betrayal moment leaving a large portion of the plot inexplicable. Frankly, what the Legion needs is more than one book, allowing the huge cast to breathe a bit more (and no, Legion Lost doesn't count) while giving Levitz more space to put his moments and side-bits in while keeping the plot flowing. Legion of Super-Heroes #11 looks great half the time, reads well about 2/3rds of the time, but has problems with both focus and follow-up that leave it at 2.5 out of 5 stars overall. As wonderful as it is to see old friends and new faces, this issue just didn't pull it together into a fully rounded reading experience... Read Full Review
