    I don't like when seemingly needless bad things happen to characters, and I don't know why they decided to do this to Comet Queen, who has always been a fun, if not the most effective, ditz. And maybe I'm just overly sensitive to things right now, but they essentially just re-booted the character here, which there's been more than enough of, with apparently much more to come.

    It's actually the non-origin parts of the issue that I found myself enjoying, like Comet Queen and Glorith's growing relationship, or watching the Academy kids go through a training exercise. Some of them (Dragonwing, Variable Lad, and Gravity Kid in particular) still feel like they could use a spotlight or two to flesh them out, but with just two issues left before DC's reboot in September, I suspect we're rapidly running out of time in that regard. Still, it's been a fun little series, and I'm going to miss it once it's gone. Hopefully something similar is still store for us come September. The Legion Academy in "Adventure Comics" has been a treat. Read Full Review
