Interesting but grossly disorganized. I was in the midst of this collection wondering what was going on when I had decided to pick up only for Supergirl.

What could have been a great way to bring a modernized version of Supergirl in the Legion had to end with a silly 4th wall break in the end. I wanted to know how was it for Kara to have journeyed into the future and how will she make it back?

The third volume of Waid and Kitson's "threeboot" of the Legion of Super-Heroes introduces Super Girl to the team in a way that subtly deconstructs the '70s integration of Super Boy while also challenging the reality of the comic as a whole. It's smartly written though more light-hearted than the preceding volume even as it continues the development of characters in a modified continuity. While their personalities aren't identical to the way they were written by Paul Levitz in the '80s, the core ...more

Somewhat salvageable but fundamentally flawed.

There's an attempt to be that flavour of early 2000's "edgy" that is extremely underwhelming and is a pretty good essense of "Waid at his worst". The only saving grace is Supergirl herself, a somewhat meta aspect that gives the book a somewhat interesting ingredient. Supergirl is the only reason this book isn't a one star review, which is truly a shame since I adore the Legion.

Decent art, okay ideas but ultimate too disorganized and muddled where th

This series is getting better for me as I read on.

Mark Waid constantly finds ways to develop the character traits of the members of the Legion. Brainiac is revealed to be a little bit of a sicko as he copes with the loss of Dream Girl; Invisible Kid becomes much more self deprecating and duplicitous as he admits his secret to Shrinking Violet; with the arrival of Supergirl, Light Lass shows her jealous side; and while Cos is on vaycay, Lightning Lad and Saturn Girl show that they can lead a team

Ooh! Supergirl!

I was a little disappointed to see that this volume isn't as long as the last two. I really liked it, especially since I'm a really big fan of Supergirl, but it wasn't as complicated or heart-string tugging as the last two.

I loved Cham's interlude. Sooo interesting.

The art and writing are still wonderful. I don't think Waid and Kitson can disappoint.

Supergirl meets the Legion of Super-Heroes and the results are...mixed. First off, as with almost every Legion story, there are just too many characters. Its easy to lose track of who is where or even who is who when the cast is so huge. Second, adding Kara was fun but not enough was done here with her. The how's and whys continue, which is fine but not enough is done towards that. I think that goes to the fact that there are about 45 plotlines going on at the same time. I might be exaggerating ...more

I picked this up mostly because of Supergirl, who steals every scene she is in. I had a hard time following who everybody else was and had to join some dots regarding previous stories. This is not so much a knock on the book as it is reflective of my unfamiliarity with the title. There is some good humour (Supergirl believing throughout that this is all a dream) and some too fanboyish for its own good. (The letters section at the end did make me chuckle a few times but it dragged a bit.) I am gu ...more

I bought this series through its first year, but then had money troubles and had to cut way back on the comics. First chance I've had to see what Waid was up to in year two. It was fun. Not wonderful but fun. The weakness of this trade is that it is clearly the pause between big story archs. Waid is still getting going,and when you're publishing in comic book size increments this amount of pages to get going is slow, but hardly unheard of, and definitely no sin. Still, a little slow; fun, but... ...more

Yay! More Legion. In the wake of the "teenage rebels," the Legion of Super-Heroes, saving the universe from destructive destructors, the ruling authority of the United Planets tucks its tail between its legs and decides to stop persecuting the Legion and even offer them authority and a budget. And then Supergirl shows up, convinced that all of her post-Krypton life is a dream, including what's happening right now. And there's good teenage drama and some action - all in all, a fun book.

Fun, but all the sub-plots were threatening to take over and while Waid writes a great Supergirl ( cute and perky, without being annoying) she tended to hog the spotlight, which meant alot of the cast got to just stand around in group shots and get the occasional line of dialogue.

Lots of fun sci-fi action, great art and a decent cast, but Waid was starting to lose control and juggle too much.

This is where Waids run begins to get interesting. Supergirl was a fun addition to the Legion.
