Boy this is a fast moving story. The death numbers keep climbing. But I worry that this might be overkill, no pun intended. I don't need less Legionnaires to make this book better. I need the right interplay and the right stories. I mean ... how many more will die in this arc. Read Full Review
I'll be upfront here, I haven't been a big fan of this series to this point. Maybe it's the cosmic scale, something which generally speaking doesn't appeal to me in my superhero books. Perhaps it's the sheer abundance of characters covered in the book that for the most part I'm coming in unfamiliar with. Or maybe Legion of Super-Heroes is just sitting in the shadow of Legion Lost which I found to be a much more entertaining series. Whatever the reason, this issue is an exception. Maybe at this point I just enjoy watching the Legion get beaten into oblivion, but there was definitely something in this issue that appealed to me and I actually quite enjoyed it. Read Full Review
In short, this issue is a dark and off-putting middle chapter of a story that hasn't been particularly engaging, and serves to make me hope that we're actually going to get a new Legion status quo coming out of it. I wouldn't even mind if we have a protracted rebuilding period (something that might be a good idea if all the maybe-deaths are upgraded to actual deaths in upcoming issues) so long as we're rebuilding to something that feels fresher and more "Legiony." I'm just hoping that we aren't killing off dozens of decades-old superheroes just so that creative can construct their 7-Person "JLA" Legion, as the rumors would have it. Read Full Review
