    • This is probably the volume where the Legion lose their innocence, as Jim Shooter comes in to take over the writing chores in this volume-- there are still occasional other writers, like E Nelson Bridwell, but Shooter's take is assured and quickly colors future presentations of the heroes.The big change, probably, is a greater interest in science fiction-- it's not like the high school soap operatics disappear, as such, but Shooter is more willing to just "go there" with the crazy concepts. So w [...]


    • Jim Shooter has always been a good writer, and this book is no exception.He really started to add a lot of the multi-issue or complex villain arcs that comics started to really come around to in the late 1960s (well, DC had to wait this long, but the general time period is till right).Giving them borderline unbeatable bad guys like the Fatal Five, really adds a lot of tension to the stories. And in general even just a shallow dose of realism is better than none at all.Curt Swan's art got better, [...]


    • I was surprised to learn here that the Legion was responsible for bringing the Fatal Five together - a serious lapse of judgment? I guess they did save the universe. Reading "The Adult Legion" immediately after (a story which rather tied the hands of Legion writers until Paul Levitz put a stake through its heart in Legion #300), it's hard not to read it as a reassurance to young readers (and their parents) that no other Legionnaires were going to die for a while. Overall, the book's great fun.


    • This is where the Legion starts get good. Longer, more interesting story arcs, awesome villains (The Fatal Five!), and endings that rely less on stupid silver age tricks. OK, there are still some stupid silver age tricks (identical twins that come forward after 20 years?), but fewer stories are about Legion traitors (perceived or real) than the previous two volumes.


    • This is where the Legion starts to take off, when Jim Shooter starts writing and the Legion starts fighting criminals like the Fatal Five.


    • Not quite as good as the previous volumes; it seems like the Legion might be hitting a bit of a fallow period. But it's still classic silver age superhero stuff.
