The Legion continues to deal with a renegade Daxamite and the Dominators.
Legion of Super Heroes #3
What I liked and what I didn’t:
It’s nice to see Element Lad regarded as the major powerhouse he is which they certainly do here. Who else would you send for to stop essentially a bad Superman? The LSH made some good choices (which means Paul Levitz wrote well) in their two big guns, Mon-El and Ultra Boy taking on Renegade while the rest of the team dealt with the Dominator ships. Cham going undercover was a good idea as well, and very in keeping with his character. There was also a reference to the war with Darkseid, so it sounds like at least major Legion history survived the re-boot.
They seem to be making Shady not only less likable but less useful as time passes. In the last run of the book, pre-reboot, she had the inexplicable off-screen break up with Mon-El, then affair with Earth Man. Now, she passes out after keeping her darkness field up for a few minutes? What, it’s harder to keep more powerful people in the dark? That makes no sense.
