Questions to consider:
It’s Mordru again in Legionnaires #50. What do you think of this version of the usually-evil super powerful magician?
How does this method to defeat Mordru compare to others you may have seen? If you don’t know of any other Mordru battles with Legion, did this ending make sense to you?
For the main story in Legion of Super-Heroes #100, does having them in the “current day” DC universe make for an interesting storyline? Which heroes did you enjoy them “bouncing” off of most, the older heroes or the teen heroes?
Which of the mini stories in the back is your favorite and why?
Be sure to share favorite panels if you like, there is some great art here!
Next time: we continue to check out the Post Zero Hour / Pre Infinite Crisis Legion eras!
