Legion of Super-Heroes #43 Review

Written by Jim Shooter
Art by Frances Manapul and John Livesay

It's all falling apart for the Legion of Super-Heroes and I'm loving it. Well, not all the bad things happening to them part. I'm loving the story part of it.

Shooter is doing an excellent job here with a huge cast of characters that would make it easy for some characters to get lost in the shuffle. Every single character has their own unique voice and personality that shines through in even the simplest of scenes and he somehow still manages to bring together and advance multiple plots spread out across different worlds.

It's always fun seeing the good guys get systematically taken down and this current Legion storyline has that in spades.  
It's always fun seeing the good guys get systematically taken down and this current Legion storyline has that in spades. The team is still facing numerous government sanctions that see the team's base served with a search warrant (the bastards even tried to confiscate their comics!) in regards to the Invisible Kid spying incident froma few issues ago that culminates with the entire team being placed under arrest.

Not to be outdone, the field operatives currently on assignment aren't having any better luck. Ultra Boy and Saturn Girl's team are busy fighting off the local science police trying to arrest Ultra Boy for past crimes on his homeworld and Karate Kid's team, on a different planet, ended up getting separated and captured after Karate Kid and Triplicate Girl were spirited away by some mysterious character just before the battle began.

Verdict - Check It. I, personally, love this book, but I don't think it's something for everyone, so I'm leaving it as a Check It for the time being. There's lots of stuff happening in this issue and things are really picking up steam as this storyline seems to be hitting the turning point as the Legion hits rock bottom.
