Now, the students of the Legion Academy must rise to the challenge of helping the team rebuild-but a threat of almost unstoppable power is rising at the edge of Dominator space, and if the new recruits fail, the Legion Espionage Squad may be the first casualties in a war that could split worlds in half!

This is the first I have read of legion of superheroes. I don't think this was a good place to start. I knew a couple of these characters from appearances in other titles, but there were way too many characters to follow. Felt very lost.
