So disappointing. The Legion is my favorite group in comics and has been for many, many years. I was very happy when it was announced that they were finally coming back and now, I'm very disappointed in this mess that Bendis has delivered.

I HATE the changes made to all of the characters (changing their race, etc.). It just makes no sense. The Legion has always been diverse, with ch more

As happened in the preview issues, the art is very good, one of the best this title had in the Rebirth era. But the story and the character characterization, in my opinion, are not going well.

The costume (that is bullet proof and impact resistant accordin more
