The architect of today's Legion of Super-Heroes, Paul Levitz, delivers a science fiction odyssey on a scale you've never seen in a new, 6-issue miniseries! The broad strokes of the Legion's origin are well known, but you've never seen the secret machinations that went on behind the scenes! Why was the organization known as the United Planets formed? Who tried to kill R.J. Brande the first time? And what great power could leave entire planets desolate and lifeless? Cosmic Boy, Saturn Girl and Lightning Lad may have founded the Legion, but the story starts here!

    I actually don't have any negatives here. We'll see what happens as the story develops, but it looks like a good start at expanding the beginnings of the largest super hero team in the DCU (or Nu). Read Full Review

    Long time readers will pick up lots of other minor tweaks to the Legion's origin (for instance, Triplicate Girl's homeworld of Cargg seems to have gotten a slight shift in status), but for new readers there's just as much to bite into and enjoy. This is a solid, entertaining book that looks fantastic. (Tom Feister worked on some of the covers for Batista's "The Legion" run, so it's great to have him contribute a cover or two to the mini-series as well.) As a non-fan of Levitz's "early days of the Legion" story in "Adventure Comics" a year ago, this is much more up my alley. I suspect, yours too. Read Full Review

    While I thoroughly enjoyed the artwork, Paul Levitz's script didn't quite click for me. Read Full Review
