    Of all the Future State books, this has been my favorite. I just hope we jump back in time. Read Full Review

    This bizarre, further future collection of heroes was unlike anything readers were expecting, but they still summon the same threads of hope and camaraderie that have inspired decades of past Legion fans, so all I have left to say is, "Long live the Legion!" Read Full Review

    A couple good story twists make this two-part Legion of Super-Heroes epilogue worthwhile. The art is also something to behold. Read Full Review

    Not really caring much about Bendis' regular title allowed me to appreciate Future State: Legion of Super-Heroesa lot more than I probably would have had I been a devout fan. Unfortunately, that doesn't say much about the regular title. But taken on its own, it's quite an enjoyable diversion. I think when the regular Legion of Super-Hero title resurfaces, it would be better off following the story started here or skipping ahead to the inevitable next reboot of Legion continuity.

    Some good points here, but too compressed"the opposite of what we usually get with a Bendis story. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Feb 23, 2021

    When all is said and done Future State: Legion of Super-Heroes #2gives readers a shocking narrative that delivers an unexpected ending to its story. It's the unfortunate insistence of clinging to the main series layout designs that seriously hampers its visuals. Combined with a bit of confusing lettering and you get a mixed bag of a book that could've been so much more. Read Full Review

    There are a number of good ideas here that may have been hampered by enthusiasm or lack of oversight but end up with something that doesn't follow the inspirational energy of the Legion. Read Full Review

    The story is extremely dull. I found it super hard to get into. The art by Riley Rossmo is a bright spot however. His art is wonderful to look at. He makes the whole issue hurt less. Read Full Review

    I keep asking myself was there any point in shoehorning Legion into Future State to begin with. After all, the series tells stories with pretty much countless protagonists - some returning, others being merely one-offs. It is kinda baffling to me that such a giant ensemble comic ended up with 2 issue long micro story. And one that I think fails on every possible level, at that. The script is boring and since it's written by Brian Michael Bendis, it's way overtalked. It also lacks depth, direction, tension and purpose, due to its length. Meanwhile its art is, to put it simple, repulsive, although feel free to disagree with me here - our perception of beauty in art is purely subjective. Me, personally, truly dislike Rossmo's style, and think more

    Still not a good issue. It has the same problems as #1. Art that is, in my opinion, ugly and very chaotic. A story that isn't interesting and ends in a rather boring/uninteresting way to boot. An overabundance of text, that makes it all a heavy read.

    Don't Recommend.

    Such absolute, complete garbage. It's bad enough that they let Bendis write another Legion related book, but to add the absolutely awful drawings (can't really call it art) by Rossmo is even worse. If I could rank this any lower, I would.

    I really wish DC would give the Legion a title with a good writer and artist.
