Review: Supergirl and the Legion of Super-Heroes #22
I continue my review of Mark Waid and Barry Kitson's Supergirl and the Legion of Super-Heroes over on the Legion of Super-bloggers site. I am currently on number 22. Here is the link for my whole review:http://legionofsuperbloggers.blogspot.com/2016/06/threeboot-supergirl-and-legion-of-super_24.html
We're at a time in the series where Waid and Kitson are really kicking things up a notch. There are a lot of plot lines bubbling. There are a few mysteries. For old school Legion fans who liked layers and layers of stories, this was starting to feel like home.
One I find interesting is that many of the Legionnaires are completely smitten with her. Cosmic Boy thinks he has a crush on her but it is explained away. Ultra Boy may have a crush on her but it turns out he feels threatened by her power level. And here we see Invisible Kid has something of a creepy shrine for her.
The addition of Supergirl has been a bit unsettling for the Legion. And things are only going to get nuttier.
