Review: Legion of Super-Heroes: The Great Darkness Saga

Legion of Super-Heroes: The Great Darkness Saga
Legion of Super-Heroes: The Great Darkness Saga by Paul Levitz
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Great Darkness Saga was the big Legion of Super-Heroes event of the eighties for most, and is one of the better Legion stories overall. Great artwork by Keith Giffen (having finally decided on a style for the moment) and an excellent story by Paul Levitz, with some nice plot twists and uses of some interesting characters.

My one complaint about the story was that it was so obvious who the main villain was (spoiler alert: Darkseid) from the very beginning that I can’t believe it was a “secret” at all. Other than that, I can’t really find too much at fault with it; any story that uses the Substitutes, the Wanderers and the Heroes of Lallor is usually a good one.
