Verdict - 4.6
- What I think: I'm not sure about this cover, while seeing Superboy destroy stuff is always a attention grab, the tagline along with the events don't exactly happen as such. I enjoy the art and overall look of the book. I did however have an issue with continuity as I did with Superboy #14 - The Face of H'el and Legion Lost #14 - Desperate Times in the fact that I would assume these events take place first. The issue is compounded by the fact that it is mentioned in Legion Lost that Terra and Thunder are healing, and this issue wasn't a one-off story but will continue next week. With that said I really enjoyed the issue. We get to see some character development. First we find the Ravagers training to use their powers, but it seems the only one capable of handling themselves is the weapon designed to take them out (Superboy). We also discover that Tim Drake has a stake in what happens to the Ravagers. The Ravagers eventually take a break and visit Venice Beach, but soon comes to a halt when word comes that a little girl with Metahuman abilities is being sought by N.O.W.H.E.R.E.. The Ravagers rush to her rescue only to be stopped by two new Ravagers in training Bright Eyes and Windshear. Superboy could probably take them out solo, but Caitlin Fairchild order him to stop, and let the rest of the team handle it. They overcome only to be confronted by their teachers Rose Wilson, Warblade, and Leash. Can't wait to see the next issue and find out what happens to Terra and Thunder (now that Legion let it out they get seriously injured).
