The The Boy of Steel, Part One; Long Live The Legion, Part One wiki last edited by Edtion on 06/15/13 12:28AM View full history

It's the return of one of DC Comics' longest running books and one of its greatest modern-day heroes – Conner Kent! In our first heroic issue, Superboy can't wait to jump back into his life – but which life will it be? With a clarity he's never had before, Conner makes a beeline for the greatest place on Earth...Smallville?

Plus, in the wake of FINAL CRISIS: LEGION OF THREE WORLDS, Starman heads off on an all-new mission in the present. And it's one that will not only impact Superboy, but the future of the DC Universe itself. Fortunately, the off-kilter Legionnaire won't be dong it alone! And in the upcoming months of ADVENTURE COMICS look for Lex Luthor! Brainiac! Lightning Lad! Superboy's pal Simple Simon! Sun Boy and Polar Boy! Ultra, the Multi Alien! Wonder Girl! Black Lantern Alexander Luthor! And many, many more new and familiar faces!

The return of Adventure Comics is and should be an event. Geoff and Francis execute this wonderfully.

It's good to see that Johns treats Superboy with an interesting blend of reverence for the classic Superboy of the 50's and 60's as well as acknowledgement of the character's actual roots as a product of both Superman and Luthor. The story depicts a Superboy adjusting to comic book resurrection...
