DC Reveals the Legion of Super-Heroes: Millennium #2 Cover. Long Live the Legion!

The buzz is strong for the upcoming Legion of Super-Heroes: Millennium miniseries launching in September! DC has revealed new art from issue #1 by artist André Lima Araújo. Writer Brian Michael Bendis teams up with Araújo to introduce the still-mysterious central character to heroes from the future of the DC Universe, including her search for Tommy Tomorrow, OMAC, Booster Gold and others.

In addition to this great art, check out the cover to issue #2 of Legion of Super-Heroes: Millennium by Ryan Sook, where a certain “super” hero gets his Legion flight ring (Like he needs it)! But wait, there’s more! With the debut of an all-new Legion of Super-Heroes ongoing series by Bendis and Sook in November, here’s a look at more of the Legion membership in the form of new character designs by Ryan Sook.

Between these designs and the cover to Legion of Super-Heroes: Millennium #2, there’s plenty to talk about – not just new costumes, but new characters, too? Let the speculation begin…

The Legion of Super-Heroes are Back

DC Comics is heading back to the future courtesy of writer Brian Michael Bendis and artists Jim Lee, Jim Chueng, Nicola Scott, Ryan Sook, Dustin Nguyen and more. Legion of Super-Heroes: Millennium is a two-part monthly comic that will lead into a new ongoing Legion of Super-Heroes series.

The two-part series will examine other “future” characters like Kamandi, OMAC, and Booster Gold and how they fit into the broader world of the Legion. The goal is a more unified future DC universe. The series will connect the DC future timelines for the first time.

The first issue introduces a near-future version of Supergirl, drawn by Jim Lee; Batman Beyond, drawn by Dustin Nguyen; Kamandi, drawn by Andrea Sorrentino; and Tommy Tomorrow, drawn by André Lima Araújo. Legion of Super-Heroes: Millennium #2 will bring Booster Gold, drawn by Nicola Scott; OMAC, drawn by Jim Cheung; A DC “off-world” chapter, drawn by Jeff Dekal; and finally the Legion of Super-Heroes, drawn by Sook.

Review: War of Realms: Journey Into Mystery #1 (of 5)

War of Realms: Journey Into Mystery #1 (of 5)

Earth is at war, besieged by an army of Frost Giants, Trolls and Fire Goblins – and the mighty Thor is nowhere to be found! But could it be that the key to turning the tide is…Thor’s baby sister? Journey into Mystery with Spider-Man (Miles Morales), Hawkeye (Kate Bishop), Wonder Man, and Balder the Brave as they go on an epic quest to save Earth’s only hope! (And, yes, deal with diaper duty.)

Marvel‘s War of the Realms is an event that Marvel hasn’t done in some time. It’s an almost line-wide event with numerous spin-offs. With just the first issue of the main series out, it’s hard to know how important those spin-offs will be and how much they’ll add to the enjoyment of the experience.

Written by The McElroys, War of the Realms: Journey Into Mystery #1 is the first miniseries to launch focused on a team whose job is to protect Thor’s baby sister.

With Balder acting as the center of the adventuring team the first issue feels like an off the rails Dungeons & Dragons adventure as he and his party must get the baby and dodge the bad guys. The issue is the gathering of heroes, with little explanation of how they’ve been found and a long pursuit by a death truck.

The interaction of the characters are key as there’s some solid humor to it all but the issue overall just feels neither good nor bad. It just is. It’s a modern setting for a roleplaying game adventure with fantasy settings and there’s some potential, especially the reveal at the end. Overall, the story is just rather average. A lot is packed in with not a whole lot explained.

The art is decent. Andre Lima Araujo, with color by Chris O’Halloran and lettering by Clayton Cowles delivers the action with some decent designs. The fantasy in a modern world look works and works well, especially the “death truck” pursuing the heroes. The characters all look good. But, like the story itself, there’s some tonal issues with the images. At times going for a more humorous style and at other points a more serious fantasy tone. Some page layouts stand out but overall, like the story, the art is also so-so.

The issue is an ok one. It tells one slice of the bigger story and time will tell how important that slice is. In the end, that may be the judge of the worth of the series. But, so far, this is a spin-off you might want to save your money.
