    This was a fantastic issue. It gave information which I devoured but that only led me to new questions! And I want all the answers now! Sook's art is just brilliant. Everything flows gorgeously. So many questions and theories! Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 1, 2020

    Aside from a less-than-welcome villain cameo and some PDA, this issue shows us a Legion in action in a vibrant United Planets with a lot of good information worked in and strong art. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Oct 27, 2020

    When all is said and done, Legion of Super-Heroes #10works as a strong bridge to link the previous story with what is to come next. The endings tease of who the Legion will be up against next didnt land with me as well as Im sure it was meant to, but we can talk about that next time. Read Full Review

    Not sure about the Legion history and the impending darkness, however, the introduction of a Krypton killer such as Rogol Zaar seems to be Bendis' last ditch effort to make this villain as iconic as Zod or Doomsday. Time will tell. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Oct 27, 2020

    Despite my growing cynicism and indifference that underscored my forgetting to review the last issue, I am compelled to acknowledge that issue 10 has me thinking that maybe Bendis has a direction in mind for this series, after all. It might even qualify as a jumping-on point for new readers with a limited amount of necessary “googling.” Read Full Review

    Too much happening makes the future far too hectic to absorb in a periodical format. Read Full Review

    Legion of Super-Heroes #10 has all the makings of a great issue, but the problematic content in the script continues to hold this book back from reaching the stars. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Oct 27, 2020

    Legion of Super-Heroes #10 is above average, but not without it's faults. This iteration of the Legion has been as such. There are moments that are really good, but many more that either just feel off or are just not executed well. While there is some excitement in “the coming darkness,” which could now be Rogol Zaar, Mordru, or both, the revelations about Mon-El are just disappointing and there's absolutely no fire in the “coupling” of Imra and Jon.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Nov 3, 2020

    Honestly, bringing Rogol Zaar into the 31st-century was almost enough for me to not read this issue. It's basically beating a dead horse at this point and even if they go in the complete oppositive direction of the 21st storytelling, it's still just going to be hard to really connect with. Pile that on with Mordru and the Jon and Imra dating things alongside everything else and it's just very frustrating. I was glad to have a regular storytelling issue and one without much in the way of action so that it was dialogue and exploration of events. I desperately want a good Legion book but everything about this one has me wishing it would just be hand-waved away as someone's fever dream. Read Full Review

    Sadly, he doesn't have a good script and it really sinks his efforts as the artist on this. Too bad. Read Full Review
