    The Legion of Superheroes has been a troubled franchise in recent years with numerous re-boots and revamps that have left it unrecognisable to old fans while failing to attract new readers. In the end of this miniseries, we will likely see all three Legions combined into one team that will be more acceptable to readers. But in the meantime, the creative team can be credited with crafting a comic book that is entertaining enough on its own, one that will delight old readers and will engage new ones, regardless of whether they care about old characters like the White Witch or Rond Vidar.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - J. Montes Oct 16, 2008

    At first, I didn't think I'd enjoy this issue, but that quickly turned around as Geoff Johns' script began to connect the dots. Those who thought the first issue was full of too much exposition will most likely be much more pleased with this second installment. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Oct 16, 2008

    This has been a lengthy review as it is, but I just have to end this on a positive note, as this comes off as one big hateon for this issue when that couldn't be any further from the truth. This is an excellent, yet flawed, issue. Thankfully, the good outweighs the bad by a large margin, but this review is for those that aren't buying this issue, for whatever reason, and I think they've read more than enough of the glowing reviews on other sites and are interested in knowing the flaws as well. For the rest of us that bought it, we just get to enjoy it and shake our heads at why they didn't. Read Full Review

    IGN - Dan Phillips Oct 15, 2008

    Outside of Johns and Perez, I can't think of any other pair of creators that could possibly have made a book like Legion of Three Worlds work on any level, which is a testament to its worthiness as well as the intimacy of every one of these Final Crisis tie-ins. How much this book succeeds might depend on your level of adoration for the Legion. At the very least, though, it will inspire awe and wonder like very few books you're likely to come across anytime soon. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Oct 17, 2008

    Last but not least, while "Final Crisis: Legion of 3 Worlds" is great for new readers, Legion-philes will find a treasure trove of details to examine. I'm sure theories are already abounding like wildfire on exactly how much, if any, of Giffen's Five Year Gap still exists, and where the divergence point exists for each of the three Legions. But if that doesn't apply to you? It doesn't matter. It's just good solid fun. Somehow I suspect that if once all the dust settles Johns wants to write a "Legion of Super-Heroes" series, there won't be too much complaining going on. I know I'd be on board every month.

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Oct 22, 2008

    Man, that was a mouthful. This issue was filled with Legion lore, little moments where my inner fanboy lit up and took notice. Cosmic Boy's reference to his relationship with Night Girl, Blok and Mysa's sweet moment, Mordru's history with the Witch, Wildfire and Dawnstar discussing their history...There was even a momentwhere the Rebooted Dreamer saw the grave of the Threebooted Dream Girl and wondered if she was going to die, a nice touch. The problems with the issue are in that approach. Every one of the major Legion villains is represented here, and the kind of power they wield is really going to take three Legions to try and offset. But I can't imagine this is a book that's in any way easy to understand if you're not fluent in Legion lore. Heck, I suspect that most of our Faithful Spoilerites wouldn't know about Rond Vidars as Green Lantern if I hadn't just Hero History'd him recently... With the sheer volume of good stuff in this issue, I'm metaphorically stuff Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Oct 17, 2008

    Final Crisis Legion of Three Worlds #2 was a very ordinary read. I simply do not think that Johns is the proper writer for the Legion. Now, I fully understand that as a life-long Legion fan my impression of this title will be radically different from non-Legion fans. I would expect that non-long time Legion fans will probably enjoy Final Crisis Legion of Three Worlds #2 more than me. Read Full Review
