“AND WE ARE LEGION.” The early days of the 31st century are a Golden Age for the galaxy, as poverty, famine, war and disease have become relics of the past, not only on Earth but on most other known worlds. The Dawning Millennium is utopian: shining, optimistic, bright...and deadly dull. That is, until a bright, defiant, energized team of super-powered teenagers from different worlds is assembled! They form a team of passionate activists and fierce dreamers crusading to make a difference and leave their mark on a society that has forgotten how to fight for change!

    I do though sincerely believe that Legion of Super-Heroes deserves to be a long-lasting success because what Waid, Kitson and Wacker have crafted is better than 90% of the super-hero comic books being produced today. Read Full Review

    OK, I now upgrade the score to . If youre not a Legion fan, go check this out. You could be hooked for the long-term. IF you already are a fan, well, you may not like the new direction. Best be content with the stories written by Paul Levitz, Keith Giffen, or a 13-year-old Jim Shooter. Read Full Review

    The new Legion is a real winner. Trust Mark Waid. Not to mention Barry Kitson. Read Full Review

    Never having been 100% on board with the reboot or DnA era teams (lots of strengths, but several storytelling weaknesses as well), Im quite open to a fresh take on the concept. So far, the hit and miss ratio between preserving the best of the past while adding a sense of freshness is favorable. While Rebel without a cause isnt the freshest idea ever for a funny book, these rebels do indeed seem to have a cause. Read Full Review

    Entertaining issue, but it felt weighted down by me not having previous knowledge of The Legion. Maybe not for new readers. Read Full Review
