• How is the plot moving along this issue for you?
I like the plot so far and like how it mixes enough character interaction with moving the action of the story forward. Members of both teams seem in character, and no one gets too much of a spotlight beyond Gold Lantern.

• Is Gold Lantern acting like a hero or villain in this issue?
I think he’s a hero. He’s definitely in the “new hero learning his job while facing massive, galactic threats” phase of his development.

• Do you have any favorite scenes / panels from this issue? If so, post them below please!
There are a lot of panels quite liked as I thought they successfully evoked the spirit of the Legion, but this was my favorite. Diana says it all.

Thanks @Beniac-5

The other anthem of the Legion of the Bendis era in the panels you posted, “there’s food.”

Yes, that resonated with me, too!

New Dawnstar look is pretty cool!!? I’m a fan of her original costume tho. But, she still looks sweet!! I like the content so far. There’s little easter egg rewards for LOSH fanatics!!

Yikes, my notifications were not working properly! (Maybe my sister changed my settings by mistake? :“”)) But anyway, I fixed them and saw this, so I’m late to the party T.T

  • As for the plot…They’ve spent an entire issue waking up and staring at this dark glob…This is only a six-issue series; they could have easily reached this point of realization at the end of the first issue :confused: (And I hear from spoilers that certain important points are later omitted, perhaps due to lack of space that began early on?) Another thing that doesn’t work for me about Bendis’ dialogue (sorry to crap on it again, but here I go) is while it may be more “naturalistic” as he says in interviews, a lot of the length comes from dialogue that is not really doing any work in terms of characterization or plot and is just kinda white noise…Which again is realistic, but not sure if this is the type of story for it.

  • Gold Lantern seems like a hero to me, though it is suspicious that he thought he was in trouble after the fire, kinda implies he started it? lol Do we know anything else about GL before this series or is this our introduction to him? He seems like a cool character and I’d be willing to read more about him. On another note, interesting to see how the politics in comics shift over time, with GL not wanting to join a militaristic organization but also not necessarily being treated like a hippie/pacifist character; my guess is its military nature is a relatively new “problem” readers might have with the Green Lantern Corps, but I’m not old enough to know haha

  • Nothing really stood out to me, but the use of the slanted panels during action scenes (p. 1, 19-21) was interesting, especially with all the negative space on page 20. It gives a little unbalanced effect and adds urgency to the action scenes imo, Godlewski did well on that!

Anyway, thanks for posting @Don-El_52 ! Looking forward to next month’s reading :smiley:

Thanks for stopping by, faithful Legion Fan!!

We learn about the Gold Lantern during the first 12 issue Legion series that Mr. Bendis did a couple years back. You should totally check that series out!

Once you do, we’d also love to see your version of the Gold Lantern!!!
