“Superman and the Legion of Super-Heroes,” Part 4! Superman’s mission to reunite the Legion of Super-Heroes in the 31st century continues on the one planet more dangerous than Earth: the cold, knowledge-obsessed world of Colu! But what fate has befallen Brainiac 5? And what are the horrible secrets behind Earth’s “new" super-heroes — the Justice League?
"Oh, right. It’s the third to last part of a story-arc. That means we’re obligated to have an entire issue of talky recap (The Justice League is evil! The Legion has a plan!) to get everyone set for the conclusion we’re (literally) rocketing towards. The surprises aren’t particularly surprising, but the artwork sure is pretty and the character-driven monologues are very well done. Assuming the conclusion is as awesome as the start of the series, this’ll have been worthwhile. I just wish it wasn’t necessary."
