Legion of Super-Heroes Vol 7 Wrap Up

           While this series was enjoyable to me it faced many problems that helped to lead to it being cancelled. First, in what was supported to be a way for new readers to get into reading comics the series needed too much on knowing past Legion history and stories for parts that made it very unfriendly to new leaders. In my opinion the series would have been helped by instead of having a separate mini series on the Origin of the team published along with the early series they instead used the issues to establish the characters so people could better understand them.

Legion of Super-Heroes #23

           The Comic starts on Shanghalla. The Burial ground of the Heroes of the 31st century. Polar Boy and Invisible Kid are at the grave of Sun Boy and talking. Polar  Boy the first one to speak says. I STILL can't believe Dirk's gone. Invisible Kid adds. Without even a BODY to bury... Everything since the clash is a cauchemar.
