United Planets liaison for the Legion of Super-Heroes Rose of Rose and Thorn has shown strength to the President of the United Planets by threatening after she threatened her. Meanwhile, The Horraz attack the Legion to get Aquaman’s trident which they had stolen in the first place. Superboy manages to end the battle creating a major flood with said trident. Now, Jon Kent must stay behind to see the induction presentation on which the Legion worked very hard. Yet, as one team goes negotiate with Ultra Boy’s father and another goes to Planet Gotham to follow Mordru’s trail, Superboy defies orders to time travel. His goal is to tell Damien Wayne of Planet Gotham.
Story – 4: There’s still a lot of unanswered questions about what went on in Millennium. I’ll let things go about that for now. We’re only in the second issue of this series. Let’s allow Bendis to tell his story because, the mess of Millennium aside, it’s been an an entertaining one so far. I’d like to see more character arcs like he did for Daredevil and Avengers. Yet, again, it’s still early. Hopefully by this time next year we’ll get what we wish for and more in classic Bendis fashion.
Art – 5: The art’s been pretty solid from start to finish in this series so far. Sook’s style has come a long ways since his days on Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
Cover Art – 5: The logo and issue number do take up slightly too much space. However, the image itself is perfect for this issue.
