    I need to know more. I need to know why Brainiac 5 seems so worried when Gold Lantern contacts him about seeing through the anomaly. I need to know why the League got blipped away. I need to know more about these Elders. I suppose we have 4 more issues to learn all about this stuff. And more importantly, if I am this intrigued, the issue did it's job. Solid art and character moments with some plot movement and mysteries. Get me issue three! Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 9, 2022

    There are quite a few indicators that Bendis is carefully constructing a big, sweeping plot arc for the six-issue series. Its kind of difficult to judge a work in progress, but whats been presented so far lacks a whole lot of narrative momentum leading into the end of its first half. Which will arrive next month. Its a beautiful-looking interaction between the two teams. Still, as of yet, the real center of the drama hasnt revealed itself. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 8, 2022

    The wait was far too long for the second issue of Justice League vs. The Legion of Super-Heroes, but that's because the series is so darn good right out of the gate. This second issue slows things down a bit as it focuses on the Gold Lantern while preparing readers, and the heroes in the story, for what comes next. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Mar 8, 2022

    When Brian Michael Bendis has a big cast to work with, the plot can get a little chaotic. Fortunately, this miniseries has a pretty good hook to set up a crossover"albeit, one that feels more like a setup for a meet-and-greet than a showdown. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - jrhuitt Mar 10, 2022

    Justice League vs. The Legion of Super-Heroes #2 pushes the story further, but seems to spin the wheels a bit. Bendis doesn't appear to have moved the characters much from the end of the first issue, and I couldn't help but feel like the book is in a holding pattern while it waits for issue #3. Hopefully, Justice League vs. The Legion of Super-Heroes #3 can pick up the pace when it arrives. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 8, 2022

    Justice League vs. The Legion of Super-Heroes #2 continues to set things up but in a good way.  At the same time, I wonder what Bendis will be allowed to reveal by the end.  While some of the dialogue throws off the characterizations in the book, it looks great and has enough going on to keep me curious.   Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Mar 8, 2022

    This issue is a slight improvement, but mostly just more of the same. I also found it disappointing that Bendis didn't follow up on the Triplicate Girl subplot. There is definitely the makings of a good story here, but I remain doubtful that Bendis is up to the job. But if he can focus on the story, and not inundate us with an overabundance of pointless dialogue, then this actually could be a good story. Read Full Review

    Derek: I totally agree. There has been a slight improvement, but it's mostly just more of the same. I also found it disappointing that Bendis didn't follow up on the Triplicate Girl subplot.

    This isn't a book I can recommend to just anyone. It isn't strong enough to interest a casual reader and Its appeal is too specific to interest a decent chunk of heavier readers, given its characters of focus having small fan bases. It really is too early to say what direction it's heading. And that seals it. I am happy that this is my first review. A story I wasn't planning on reading before, that is shaping up to be a wild card. Perfect. Who wants to review a book with no surprises? Read Full Review

    Some humor and new encounters combined with additional outstanding design work by Scott Godlewski offer enough to keep treading water, but there's very little in the way of new information or points of interest to be found here. That's far too little after a two-month wait. Read Full Review
