    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jul 21, 2013

    The initial expectation of this arc was the return of the Giffen/Levitz team to create an arc that would tear down the Legion and build them up stronger, but I suspect that the writing was on the wall for the LSH even before Giffen jumped ship. The ham-handed devastation of the Fatal Five's attack was clearly designed to remodel the Legion and the 31st Century to tell new-and-different stories, but the defeats of the bad guys this issue seem a clear indicator that those arcs have been cut short, leading to a quick-and-easy defeat for the unstoppable foes. The message, it seems, is that new Legionnaires under the leadership of Phantom Girl are incapable of facing what the universe has to offer without Saturn Girl and company, a message that is not only disheartening, but certainly not worth paying 3 bucks a month to read about. Legion of Super-Heroes #22 scores by bringing familiar faces back, but falls short in both concept and execution. Read Full Review
