What happens when your culture is so utopian that there is no room for individuality, free-thinking, or bending the rules...and you're a rebellious teenager? Well, you join up with the Legion of Super-Heroes, of course! A bunch of teenagers from around the universe, fed up with the passive way their parents and other adults interact with the world and let their governments decide what's best for them, join forces to use their diverse powers as a team to save people and fend off threats. Even the threats that the united governements say don't exist. I thought this was totally fun, and very well written. I'm not normally one for super-hero comics, but this really looks a lot of sci-fi themes and also just teenager hormones/emotions/relationships.
