Final Crisis: Legion of 3 Worlds #5 (of 5)

Here we finally reach the end of this series, which features more Legion of Super-heroes characters than any series in living memory.

You definitely get the feeling that this was a dream project for writer Geoff Johns and artist George Perez - their enthusiasm shows through on virtually every page, and they get to weave a story that touches on almost every part of the Legion's 50-year history.

Of course, with all the characters and insane battles going on, the actual plot gets a little muddy in places, and as always, the Superboy-Prime character is more annoying than interesting.

Still this has been a fun series to read, and while it doesn't wrap up every loose end, it does lay the groundwork for future stories that will give us a clear vision of what the Legion is and who the members are.

I'm not sure a casual reader could make sense of all this, but for those of us who've been around for a while, it's been a lot of fun.

Grade: A-
