Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Shooter drew Legion of Super-Heroes (DC's 31st-century teenage superteam) at the unprecedented age of 14 and went on to write many of the series' best-remembered stories. In 2008, 31 years after leaving the title, he returned for an exciting two-volume stint that began with Enemy Rising and concludes here with Legion. When a giant alien planet materializes inside Saturn's orbit, the Legion must prevent its gravity from tearing the solar system apart and investigate its possible links with monstrous destroyers that have been appearing throughout the United Planets and seem bent on eliminating all organic life. Shooter, aided by Manapul's solid but sometimes rough art, fills the story with the superscience, action, and interteam conflict and romance that are the hallmarks of great Legion tales, adding doses of humor and intrigue as well. VERDICT Shooter's involvement in the series was unfortunately limited to just two volumes, and this resulted in a rushed ending. But his work here, an improvement over recent volumes of the Legion written by Mark Waid and Tony Bedard, is recommended for all teen and adult superhero fans.—S.R.
