The start of the new Superman event "Brainiac & The Legion Of Super-Heroes"! It's New Krypton's worst nightmare as Brainiac attacks the planet, determined to recapture the city of Kandor!

So it's up to Superman, Supergirl, Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes to stop the two madmen before they destroy everything!

    The story about the beginning of the end of Kal-Els involvement with New Krypton as a member of its military, and what is perhaps the beginning of the end of New Krypton itself is under way. Judging from its opening salvo, Superman: LSONK #1, this storyline is going to continue to live up to the epic status the Superman Family of books are becoming renown for. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Mar 11, 2010

    And as I said at the beginning, it all flows so well. The heroism of Superman and Supergirl and the Legion, the callous villainy of Zod and Brainiac, the frightened citizens coming together ... it all just worked. Add to that the usual stellar work of Pete Woods and you had a phenomenal opening chapter to Last Stand. And let's not forget ... finally, Superman is acting as Superman. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Michael Deeley Mar 18, 2010

    Despite the logical problems found in most comic books, this was a fun comic. Big events like this are part of the reason I began reading in the first place. The plot lines involving the Legion, Zod, and Brainiac are finally coming together. Future issues should involve more of Gen. Lanes forces and (hopefully) Nightwing and Flamebird. Pete Woods art is expressive and exciting. The Brainiac ship is menacing and the action flows nicely. Most of me is looking forward to this event. Read Full Review

    IGN - Tyler Parker Mar 10, 2010

    There are a few elements that work in this book, including a great (albeit predictable) Superman moment. The short length of the mini-series will work in favor of the narrative as well, as evident by this first issue. The action and characters have to move the plot along rather quickly as compared to the pace of WONK. Trust me, you shouldn't lose any sleep at night if you're missing this "event," just make sure you wake back up in time for JMS to tackle Big Blue in a few months. Read Full Review

    Mania - Chris Smits Mar 16, 2010

    DC, I'm pleading with you. Do something different with where this is going; change direction. I realize that it takes a long time to turn the ship around but I really hope that you do. I'm giving this one a D because none of this is the artist's fault and we at least are maybe getting Superman back instead of Kal-El of New Krypton. That's enough to salvage it from the abyss of an F, but just barely. Yes, I realize this review is a rant, but that's kind of my overall point. After having the life slowly sucked from the world of Superman and not really saying much about it, all of that bottled-up frustration is coming out now. Read Full Review
