    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Oct 2, 2019

    Legion of Super-Heroes: Millennium #2creates such atmosphere and weight in its narrative that it pains me to see it end. I only hope that what it leads to can pick up the groundwork it has laid down to create a story worthy of this series' exceptional work. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Oct 3, 2019

    Legion of Super-Heroes: Millennium #2 succeeds mightily in connecting the thematic threads woven throughout this tale, and does exactly what it intends to do: make readers care about the Legion again. It's going to be an awesome ride, folks. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Oct 8, 2019

    While the Legion makes up a very small portion of this book and it's really just the Rose/Thorn story, it's one that does everything right for me. Giving us a travelogue to the future to understand the foundations of the Legion and where Earth stands with all of it is exactly what was needed and I'm glad it happened outside of the Legion book itself, which is going to have more than enough to work with. Bendis put together a lot of really good stuff here and got to do it with a fantastic team of artists to bring it to life. I totally understand why this two-part series may have fallen through for some, but for me, it delivered exactly what I didn't know I wanted. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Oct 2, 2019

    Again, this gave me hope. Bendis and Sook work well together and they are the creative team on the new ongoing series. Hopefully they tell good stories and keep it focused. Otherwise, the book could be in real trouble and it wouldn't have much of a future. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Oct 7, 2019

    There seems to be some hope for Legion of Super-Heroes fans in this Fourthbooted iteration of the team. However, under Bendis's pen it may take some time to materialize as his track record at DC has shown him to take far too long to get to the point. Legion of Super-Heroes: Millennium is a perfect example of this. While Rose's character may be interesting, it really has nothing to do with the Legion. Bendis is going to try and tie it all together, but like “The Unity Saga,” one fears it will be a long drawn out tale with a lackluster finale. Thankfully, the art is consistently good in Legion of Super-Heroes: Millennium #2, even if the “story” is yet more set up. Read Full Review

    411Mania - John Pumpernickel Oct 3, 2019

    The issue is a hodge podge of ideas and while some might tell me that I have to look at the big picture, this issue doesn't work for new fans. Nothing has me excited or anticipating something greater. Read Full Review

    Why Legion didn't simply return with its own #1 in November is a question with no clear answer and all of the artistic talents assembled for this aimless tour feels like some seriously squandered potential. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Oct 2, 2019

    There really is no reason to pick this issue up.  If you are a Legion of Super-Heroes fan, don't let this taint you.  Just wait for the Legion series to start and pray for the best.  The art here is stellar, but even that can't save this book from being 100% skippable. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Oct 19, 2019

    A major misfire in reintroducing the Legion to the DC Universe that leaves me concerned. The story appears to be teasing a story without having the courage to simply introduce it in the monthly title when it finally is published. The visuals are okay, but don't impress because the characters I'm paying to read about aren't in the story. I'm incredibly disappointed. Let me put it this way, say you're a writer and the company you write for says it's going to pay you in cash, but instead they give you some paper that says MONEY at the top, but it's not money. Would that writer be happy with what they received? That's how I feel about the writing on this book. With a story this bad, and such a misleading title, I can't average the scores to give a passing grade. Read Full Review

    Get Bendis out of DC. He’s ruining everything he touches. Leave the Legion alone man. This book had the social commentary that I’m not a fan of, especially when poorly executed as it was here. Stop blaming everything on the rich. Damn. Why is Rose the main character in a book introducing the Legion? This is just ridiculously bad. I’m also not a fan of the reimagining of all of the characters. DC, do us all a favor and ditch Bendis.

    Is this what Saturn Girl died for in Doomsday Clock? I mean was erased from reality, but you get the general idea? For n introduction to the Legion series, both issues of Millennium were not only hardly related to the Legion itself, they were also boring, disjointed and quite frankly pointless. The story could have been summarized via retrospections in the main series, once it launches. Because you can believe me, there's barely any plot to it.
    Skipper, unless you're a Legion mega fan who has a pillow with Saturn Girl's face on, and wants to read absolutely anything with the Legion name put on, doesn't matter the quality.

    The art was amazing and it did have a kind of nice isolationist stream of conciousness thing going on in the middle, but I just wish not every Bendis character spoke like they say the first thing that comes to their head, while being on a caffeine rush.

    i honestly don't know what the fuck is going on in this issue. It's so disjointed, feels like a billion things are happening at once. I guess each part is supposed to be setting up an arc for legion? But if that's the case, then why not just tell the story you want to tell now, don't make a miniseries to setup future arcs, then miniseries becomes pointless then. It's a shame because the artists in this issue are some of my favorites: Nicola Scott, Jim Cheung, Ryan Sook, etc. I feel like this series should have been an establishing of how the legion comes to be in this new continuity, but it just treats them like they're already established, which is jarring. Also I thought Saturn Girl died in Doomsday Clock, it's almost like no one has more

    I'm glad when books like this come around. You can really tell which critics are full of shit or not. This sucks and is poorly written. Plain as that.

    What the hell are DC doing allowing Bendis to handle the LSH relaunch? Apart from the art, it is a complete mess. It will probably be the end of the LSH franchise.

    Wow...this is bad.

    I love the Legion. They are my favorites of all time, but this is just horrible. The characters don't even look like themselves. This 2 issue series was really pointless and seeing that the Legion has been completely changed, I'm not at all confident that the new series will be worth reading at all.

    DC Stuff Oct 2, 2019

    Just a mess of an issue that has nice art but nothing else. There is no reason to read this garbage so what is the reason to print and sell it? To squeeze money out of Legion fans? Maybe, but have them in the two issues more than a couple of pages next time!

    If you are going to do a comic a thousand years in the future you may need to give a brief DC history lesson. That is what Bendis has done. He inserted the Rose / Thorn into every significant future story line until she reached the 31st Century.. no more no less. I thought it was extremely clever

    So we get the mission statement: humanity has endured, but just barely. It falls, and comes back over and over. And now this new team of teen heroes has one last chance to make it worth before New Earth goes the way of Old. Not really sold on the teens yet, but there is something about this idea that really feels different.

    Superheroes for Hire Oct 9, 2019

    Art is generally average to above average from each individual artist, but the various artists approach does nothing to clarify the fractured nature of this story. 3 points for art. And then...1 point for story. Bendis falls into "prequel trope" territory here, with Rose/Thorn inspiring several future characters to make a change in their destiny. We see Rose entertain a pre-Booster-Gold Michael Carter's fascination with the 20th century. And then... We see Thorn lecture OMAC about being just a cog in the machine. And then... We waste 7 (yes 7!) pages reading the sexual exploits of Rose and Thorn as told through her space journal. Still no appearance of the Legion by this point, I almost threw the book away at that point. Absolute trash. And more

    Probably an accurate preview of Bendis's upcoming Legion series -- a huge team of beloved iconic characters standing around as background props for whatever meandering narrative involving minor Bendis stand-in characters dominates the foreground. Occasionally the roster will change.

    Bendis got off to a... let's just say bad start last issue. Hopefully, this one improves. I mean, it can't get worse can it?

    The Good:
    I was wrong, it could get worse.

    Art is good. That's it.

    The Bad:
    Welcome to Easter Eggs: The Issue. Where nothing of importance happens but look at this reference. Ain't it neat?

    The Legion, which I remind you are meant to be the big characters of this series, it's their book, appear on the second last page. One panel. That's all they get.

    There's so much else like Bendis-Speak and how boring this issue was to read that I was scan reading it. I just don't want to cover it anymore.

    Look the only saving more
