The Legion was my first comics love the book that got me into Comics For Good All for good all way back in 1980 I had never read the stories in this volume before which were published several years before my start Paul Levitz got his start n the Legion here and while you can see seeds f what his work Aria Appassionata on the book eventually blossomed into it is a different book at this point Still it s fun to see the Legion in action especially with a young Dawnstar just figuring thingsut The art is all ver the place at least there s some Mike Grell but holds together reasonably I always wanted to get in to Legion and finally did it with this book The stories were really fun even if some f them were not well thought The Untold Story: My 20 Years Running the National Inquirer out lol I liked that how politicians were all nothing but villains for legion lol I read somef the Great Darkness saga before and didn t like it that much and dropped it but everyone says The Great Darkness Saga is the best story Betrayed, Betrothed and Bedded of Legion so since i liked what i read so far i will give The Great Darkness saga another shot There is something that came to my attation in The Great Darkness saga which was all the legion members were married Being all mostly at their teen ages seeing allf them married was weird They were all talking like Anna Laetitia Barbauld Poems 1792 ok husband thanks wife and stuff lol I was like WTFne Caught in the Net or two may be but all the team was freaking married to eachther Blue Road to Atlantis or something lol and reading this i can see that this weird crap comes from Paul Levits every issues he wrote there was a legion couple It was like Lightning lad and Saturn girl Timber wolf and whatever girl and Cosmic boy and whatever girl they were likek lover thanks lover up and down And he even married Lightning freaking a LAD to Saturn GIRL Paul dude chill calm down lol I hope when they relaunch Legion with a reboot there will be no married legionners and just Bioetica Della Sessualita, Della Vita Nascente E Pediatrica oner two dating couples in legion Jennifer Scales and the Messenger of Light or something lolInterestingly Superboy was not stealing the show interestingly cause i thought he would but Legion memebers also shined I liked how Cameleon Boy was doing detective work when the Ultra boy was framed by killing his ex girl friend He really dug well nice murder mystery story I can see Cameleon Boy and Batman doing some detective work together at some Justice League Legion crossver that would be fun but there is this when there is a genious like Braniac 5 with computer mind i would expect him to do detective work Never the less i really enjoyed that story I really breezed through this Itinerari nel sacro.
