The strongest man in the universe is rampaging on the surface of Panoptes, and the Dominators are massing in the skies above and naturally, The Legion is stuck between the two! They don't have the raw power to stare down either threat but what they do have is a planone that puts some of their own in even greater danger behind enemy lines!

    Overall, not a bad issue as this truly felt like Levitz hitting his stride. We had action, character progression, and multiple squads on multiple sites. That sounds like a Legion book. Add to that Portela's art, and this was another great third issue for a DCnU series. Read Full Review

    I continue to be a huge fan of the Legion of Super-Heroes but I still have to admit that it's a book I have a hard time recommending to readers. I love the cast and they're all acting much as they've been like over the full length of their existence so there's a lot to like here with that if you're an old fan of the series. This opening arc dealing with Panoptes hints at some of what's to come and gets us to see a couple of different places in a post-Flashpoint world. I like the mix of established characters and lesser known ones working here and the growing subplots that have come out of it. I'm curious as to where they intend to go here though as the Legion always has a lot of stories running and plenty of characters throwing lots of wrenches into the mix. There's an idea of where it can go here, but it could also be a ruse. I'm definitely along for the ride, but it's based on a couple decades worth of Legion familiarity. Read Full Review

    They seem to be making Shady not only less likable but less useful as time passes. In the last run of the book, pre-reboot, she had the inexplicable off-screen break up with Mon-El, then affair with Earth Man. Now, she passes out after keeping her darkness field up for a few minutes? What, it's harder to keep more powerful people in the dark? That makes no sense. Read Full Review
