    It's amazing how this went from a series that I approached with caution due to the convoluted history of the extremely large Legion of Superheroes cast to becoming one of DC's strongest titles. Paul Levitz and a great art crew close out the first story arc with great new twists on undeniably charismatic characters. I get more and more excited about this series with each issue and this is a fine example of why I've recently become a total Legion junkie. Read Full Review

    The art was sloppy- Earth-Man has a vanishing/reappearing arm band in the same scene; Power Boy is specifically mentioned as being away from the Academy, but drawn into one of the crowd scenes. The cover was even odd- it showed Earth-Man getting out of bed, having slept with a Legionnaire whose identity was hidden by shadow- but this was revealed last issue. I still don't get the Shadow Lass/Earth-Man hook up, nor her break up with Mon-El, rapidly becoming "Sir Not Appearing in this Issue." And that Projectra scene was just… bizarre. Sleeping with your dead husband's uniform while you wait for him to be reborn? Bleh. Are there psychiatrists in the 31st century? I recognize that things need to take turns in this book, but I admit I want to know more about the 31st Century Green Lanterns as well as the strange supporting character, Professor Harmonia Li, both of whom aren't touched on this issue.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Oct 23, 2010

    This book, with the lead story, backup story and voting public service announcement seems more like an anthology to me than an issue in the series of monthly releases featuring the Legion. Sure, there are plots that are left dangling, but they're not cliffhangers. The stories are just floating out there waiting to be picked up at another point. To that end, the character tags are always a plus, especially when the hero count nears a score. Read Full Review
