Summary

Supergirl is dying and the other Legionnaires feel powerless to help her. Fortunately, they discover that there is something that might be able to save her, the only problem is it’s only found in the past. They quickly send their trusty robot back in time to the 21st Century to ask for Superman’s aide. Something goes wrong and instead of bringing Superman back, the robot brings back Bugs Bunny. As you can imagine, wackiness ensues in the best possible way.

Positives

This book is just a really fun crossover. If you go in taking it too seriously, you might not enjoy it but I don’t know why anyone would since it is DC meets the Looney Tunes after all. It’s a very humorous book that takes full advantage of how ludicrous it is. And to top it all off, there is even a subtle reference to Duck Dodgers.

Negatives

I was a little disappointed with the back up story. It’s not that it’s a bad story or that it wasn’t fun or anything, but it was just a retelling of the primary story so you already knew where it was going.

Verdict

This is another home-run for DC Comics. They have been turning out quite a few crossovers recently and I have enjoyed them all, and this book is no exception. It’s a nice turn from the more serious crossovers like Green Lantern/Star Trek or Green Lantern/Planet of the Apes. There is room in the marketplace for all of them, so it’s good to see DC explore them all.

Hi, I'm Cameron Tevis and I've been a comic book, anime and film fan my entire life. While I like Marvel and anime my true love is DC Comics. My father, who was a fan himself, introduced me at a very young age to the amazing characters in DC (especially Hal Jordan Green Lantern). I think it's a fantastic time to be a comic book fan and I'm happy I get to write about the company that I love so much. Besides being a DC fan, I am a designer and I recently started a comic book series of my own called Event Cycle 6 published through Aporian Comics. I recently wrote and directed a short film "The Misadventures of Harley Quinn". And most importantly I am now a father to my beautiful daughter Arya Jade!

    Hilarious issue! I love that their secret weakness was how easily they start angsting in overwrought thought balloons, at the slightest suggestion from Computo 2. Grummet’s art was wonderful, though (as is always the case with Legion revivals in recent years) there was one costume update I didn’t like. Shadow Lass was just a little drab compared to some of her classic looks.
