And Then I Read: LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES 3 & 4

The main threat in these issues is posed by an invading fleet of Dominators, one of those alien races who have it in for the United Planets. I’ve never been very interested in them, they seem sort of old-fashioned alien villains. This group doesn’t fare so well, even against some newer Legionnaires. Meanwhile, a super-powered villain named The Renegade is breaking out of restraints the Legion put him in previously, in a Hulk-like display of bulging muscles and mad rage. Writer Paul Levitz puts the Legionnaires on this case to good use.

The art by Francis Portella is quite good. I like the subtle variety of techniques he’s using on different scenes in these books. Well done.
