In spite of abruptly interrupting the latest meeting of the United Planets after Aquaman's trident had returned Earth's oceans, President Brande has seen what the Legion of Super-Heroes can truly be thanks to Jon Kent. This leaves many in the Legion proud. However, there is also debate over who should lead them. A meeting is called for Legionaries to vote for the next commander of the team. Their decision will shape the future of the Legion of Super-Heroes forever.

The votes have been cast, and Ultra Boy is the Legion's new leader. His first mission in charge may be a difficult one, for his father, Crav has declared that the Legion of Super-Heroes is under arrest. Failure to surrender could mean death.

5Story - 5: We have a good jumping on point that serves as a calm after one storm and before another. Bendis has always tended to do chapters like this in his overall arcs. It's one of the things that makes his work a joy for me to read. Pick up his Marvel work and his Superman and Action Comics if you haven't already. You'll find them entertaining gems that give characters a fresh start while paying tribute to their past adventures. Plus, they are just darn good comics.

5Art - 5: The change in art style isn't that notable or jarring to the eyes, the transition is smooth. This helps as it really conveys the title's atmosphere.

4Cover Art - 4: While I still have issues with the logo, the image reminds me of Detroit: Become Human and is well drawn.

5Variant Cover Art - 5: This pretty much invokes the same feelings as the previous issue's variant. That and its art make it a treat for fans.
