Wow. This comic wasn't half bad. The author actually made the effort to tell readers who all these people are and what's going on...which improved the story tremendously.
All this time, I've been thinking of Legion Lost as a comic about the Legion, and I've been disappointed with the title. This issue makes clear, in a way I hadn't caught before, that Legion Lost is really about this group called the Ravagers, who I assume have their own book. There's all kinds of backstory going on with these characters and their relationship to Superboy and to this Harvest dude.
All very well and good, except I don't care about the Ravegers or Superboy or Harvest. And in the process of following their story, the writers have made a hash of the Legion characters and their backstories. Suddenly there's this secret Science Police organization devoted to keeping the time stream safe (whatever that means), and they have their own time bubbles, and various Legionnaires are supposed to be agents of this organization. Suddenly, time travel works with no problem, Legionnaires are keeping deadly secrets from one another and behaving in all kinds of uncharacteristic ways.
Oh, and Wildfire died. Don't worry, he'll get better. After all, Gates and Chameleon Girl died, and they got better. Death isn't the handicap it used to be in the olden days.
On the cover, this is touted as "Wildfire's Last Stand?" and next month we're promised the lost Legionnaires' "Last Stand!" I'm hoping that soon after, we'll see "Last Issue on the Stands!!" (indeed, rumor has it that Legion Lost is on DC's chopping block).
On a completely different topic, I've started working non a new Legion site. It's very incomplete and not ready for prime time at the moment, but come on over and take a look if you want.
In the 26th century, three psi-gifted teenagers find themselves on the same flight to Earth. Thrown together by chance, the kids use their remarkable abilities to foil an assassination attempt against Colleen Artveldt, the galaxy's richest person. In response, Artveldt announces that she wants them to be founding members of a new organization, a corps of similarly-talented youths to be called the PsiScouts.
