Chameleon takes center stage as he puts his detective skills to work on a challenging case that could have major consequences for 31st century Earth! Plus, get to know the Legion's newest member-no, it's not Supergirl!
Supergirl and the Legion of Super Heroes #19 was average at best. It almost seems that Waid is uninterested in this title and that it is showing through in the stories. I will give this issue huge props for not paying much attention to Supergirl. On that basis alone, this issue is a success. However, this issue simply wasn't an interesting, exciting or fun read. I have no idea if the Legion of Super Heroes will ever turn that corner and become an exciting read once again. I really hope that it will. I love these characters and want to see this title succeed. However, I simply cannot recommend this Supergirl and the Legion of Super Heroes to anyone other than the most die-hard Supergirl and Legion fans. Read Full Review
In summary, Supergirl soars in only three pages this issue. Her super-feats include flight, using her x-ray vision and being super-nice. The rest of the Legion are as shallow as a small puddle, but a newer character named Theena exhibits more depth than expected. Barry Kitson is up to his usual excellent level of artistry, but despite these assets, I really can't see anybody having feeling anything for the Legion, as they are portrayed in this newest incarnation of their book.
