This a real treat for long time Legion fans as it features the pre-Crisis team, the threeboot of the 90's team and the Mark Waid team of the 2000's. All 3 teams of Legionnaires must band together to stop Superboy-Prime and his Legion of Super-Villains. As with most of Geoff Johns' writing, he pays tribute to the history of the DC universe while updating for modern age. This book could be a bit daunting for readers who aren't familiar to the Legion but it's also a helpful guide to understanding Legion members and their motivations for forming over the years.
Really, really confusing at times, with a whole lot of expository dialogue. Aside from knowing that the Legion is a thousand years in the future, I don't know anything about them, and this features various Legionairres from various realities. Superboy Prime (temperamental sort of brat from Infinite Crisis) is the big bad of the whole series, and it draws in Superman from the present, along with a couple of other familiar figures along the way. Johns manages to get the whole thing to work regardless, and he's got an ideal creative partner in George Perez, whose artistic style really just gets better with time.
Superboy Prime is out of control and not even the combined powers of the Legion of Superheroes and Superman can stop him. But by pulling in the Legions from Universe Prime and the Legion from Universe 247. But can they stop both Prime and the mysterious Time Trapper before the future world is ripped apart?
The art of George Perez alone earned this book a star from me. The story is epic, if complicated, and just fun. It doesn't matter if you don't recognize many of the characters, writer Johns weaves in the requisite amount of exposition when it is absolutely needed.
