    First off, just truly stunning work by Jenny Frison, a favorite of mine.Second, we start out with her name being Xola Aq, a throwback. I wonder if she will ever be called Mysa.And then the twist. She is Mordru's daughter. And no one else knows. She hates Mordru. But she also hates the President. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Sep 29, 2020

    These last two issues have easily been the strongest in Bendis Legion run. If he can expand his focus beyond his adoration for his revamped Jonathan Kent, this could become a title worth getting excited about every month. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Kevin Given Oct 6, 2020

    The Legion of Superheroes seems to be getting back to its roots and doing so in an awesome way. I enjoyed this issue as it seems to be setting us up for great things to come. We get some excellent guest stars from the DC hero gallery and all seems to be righting itself in this universe. I can't wait for the next issue. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Oct 2, 2020

    They had me at Doctor Bouncing Boy, but this issue really fills in some gaps and feels as tense as it should. Well-done all around. Read Full Review

    The "Trial of the Legion of Super-Heroes" stands out as a solid celebration of the team and its many characters, even if it could have been even better. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Morgan Hampton Sep 30, 2020

    While it was a fun and often exciting way to read a comic, I do think the story suffered a bit from this approach. It quickly got formulaic and after a while, you wanted something else to happen.  Read Full Review

    Another art spectacular gives us a bunch of new looks at some Legionnaires, while moving the story along nicely. This is a pretty wild issue overall. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Sep 29, 2020

    Because character holds a lot of weight with me, this issue gets a higher rating than maybe it should. The minimal story and apparent forthcoming rehash of "The Great Darkness Saga" is underwhelming. The last thing we need is a retelling of one of the Legion's greatest stories. However, the character spotlights give readers a chance to get to know the Legionnaires in this incarnation, that after nearly a year in to the title is sorely lacking. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Carl Bryan Oct 1, 2020

    I appreciated all the artistic interpretations, but it's time for this book to become grounded, and get out of the Bendis formula. Over in Three Jokers, Geoff Johns is telling stories with six to seven frames a page. I need more meat on these Legion bones! Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Sep 29, 2020

    When all is said and done Legion of Super-Heroes #9 delivers a story that is enjoyable, if a bit overstuffed. The menagerie of art styles does more to overwhelm the reader than add to the story. Hopefully, next months issue will settle down a bit on all counts. Read Full Review

    There are many highlights to be enjoyed among these pages, but Legion of Super-Heroes is failing to make the case for its continuation. Read Full Review

    Oh, well. At least the various artwork is nice to look at, even if reading the book is as tough as can be. Read Full Review
