    But did we get anywhere other than moving the teams to the different times? I mean, I still don't know what this Darkness is. I'll keep my fingers crossed this is brought to a great ending. I'll hope we get more Legion after this. We shall see. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke May 10, 2022

    Justice League vs. The Legion of Super-Heroesis one of the cleanest and best-looking comics on the stands. The story is fun as it features so many heroes, but it's also erratic as it continues to figure out what it wants to be about. It's a fun ride and a good journey well worth a look for fans of DC Comics, but it lacks stakes and a solid direction. Read Full Review

    Where this issue excels in unique visuals from Scott Godlewski, particularly the reveal of one more timeline/world in a double-page spread right at the end. Where it struggles is finding the right pacing to tell that story in a compelling way. The delays on this series also make it feel like it stands on its own in a DCU that's quickly moving on to some crazy new developments. Read Full Review

    This mini-series continues to show some intrigue, but Bendis' knack for ruining the drama keeps ensuring this story won't manage to reach its full potential. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson May 16, 2022

    The first three issues together make a pretty good first issue, but I don't know how they can successfully wrap this up. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - William Martin May 10, 2022

    I don't care about this story and I don't think I ever will. How can you when it's so slight and there is no effort given to writing anything below surface level. That said, It remains a fun diversion. This is the kind of book you pick up and enjoy, set down and forget. No one will be talking about Justice League vs. the Legion of Super-Heroes at any point in the future. Read Full Review

    If you're buying this series, ask yourself why. Based on this issue, it's not going to get any better and like Event Leviathan before it, it's impact will be obsolete before it's completed. Read Full Review

    Toward the end of this issue Ultra Boy comments that he struggles to keep track of all the members of his team; that's also true of the cast and plot lines found in Justice League vs. The Legion of Super-Heroes for readers. Read Full Review

    Derek: Its impact is already obsolete thanks to the events of Justice League#75. I doubt anyone's buying this for the writing. Perhaps, for the art. Or perhaps in the belief that this series is required for fully understandingDark Crisis. However, I suspect it could be easily skipped without impacting their enjoyment of that event.
