That is it. Writing the Legion of Super-Heroes is probably one of the hardest tasks in mainstream comics. He has skills the Legion seems sorely lacking and his no-nonsense attitude could create interesting interactions with the chipper Legion members. This scene is full of mindless banter about how the Legion members should be updated on who is dating who. (Sooo…I guess the Legion can now teleport or something? Synopsis: We begin with Dawnstar explaining her home planet of Starhaven and how it is connected to the 13th century on Earth. Bendis continues to fail to flesh out the Legion itself. Yes, dumbasses, the guy trying to kill the Legionnaires is probably the bad guy. Bendis then delivers the five-page scene back at Legion’s headquarters where we learn that Damien should not have been brought to the 31st century. Bendis loads up the introductory page with plenty of Interlac in the background. I have no idea what is going on. Everyone wants the trident. My fears are proving to be a reality. (Ummmm…how does Mon-El, a member of an independent superhero team, have the legal authority to arrest a foreign leader on that foreign leader’s planet? Disclaimer: GeekDad received this comic for review purposes. That is about it. This approach completely robs the Legion of its agency.
If the Legion was a culinary dish then the Legion and the 31st century should be the steak and potatoes while the connections to the present-day DCU should simply be the garnishment placed upon the dish. Superboy asks exactly why is he here? (Seriously. Normally I don’t let a whole lot of what happens in fictional worlds sway me but geez. On top of that, Bendis gives Jon the most vanilla personality possible.

It is pretty much the same approach that Bendis is taking with Superboy. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. …My mind just collapsed in on itself from all the stupid in that panel. I feel like Fozzy Bear needs to be in all of these scenes constantly saying “Waka-waka!!!”. This is a massive failing at the most obvious and core strength of the Legion franchise. Is. Dawny says that Jon was supposed to be in the Orientation Pavilion.
Therefore, the reader never takes any of the Legionnaires seriously. Mon-El asks who does he look like. Bendis has failed to tell the reader why they need to add this title to their pull list. There was zero new information conveyed to the reader.
I love the design for Crav Nah. We finally get a second plotline in the form of the mystery around Damien Wayne and how he influences the 31st century. Just gross. Just gross.
Also, catch up with all of Rokk’s other musings about comics, anime, TV shows, movies and more over on his Twitter page. I am glad that Bendis had Mordru quickly ferret out Saturn Girl’s plan and then overpower her and throw her out of his mind. (Oh, for fuck’s sake. When can this terribly beaten down and not funny gag be dropped? This.
I am thrilled that Mordru is being presented as a powerful adversary. Just get it over with already.
Yeah, it was cool to see Mordru flex his powers, but there was literally zero plot progression at all in this scene. When all is said and done, Legion of Super-Heroes #3 is a solid story with some elements landing better than others. I have no idea what is going on.) I like that Bendis is establishing this design as a Nah family symbol. And the problems with Bendis’ version of Jon do not stop with him being written as an idiot. Your email address will not be published. Ray: Bendis has been jumping all over the place in his short time at DC, from Metropolis to Gemworld and now to the far future with Legion of Super-Heroes.
He mostly wanders around seeming confused before being abruptly sent back to the present because his presence in the future could unbalance the timeline. This is an amusing new character, but very one note.

Deathstroke Round 2. Imra uses her powers to wipe Damien’s mind of the 31st century. I love how shit flies in literally out of nowhere.) Dawnstar arrives on the scene and says that they have been looking for Superboy. Mon-El gets mad and flies off. All of the characters have excellent facial expressions.
With a mixture of closeups accompanied by colorful backgrounds, it’s an easy and fun read that I couldn’t stop looking at. These five pages were pure fluff designed just to waste time.
