Good Comic, Terribly Long Title--DC Universe Online Legends #2
In an Elseworlds-style tale, Superman is dead and Lex Luthor is humanity's best hope against an alien invasion. Okay, that plot piques my interest, but does the second issue of the series keep the momentum going?
Another great alternate-universe tale, with the alternate universe in this case being part of a playable video-game with the same title as the comic (minus the "Legends" they tacked on for some odd reason). Why do I like this comic? Mainly because it is written well, has decent art, and features one of my favorite DC villains (of the admittedly small amount I know), Lex Luthor. In an alternate future where Luthor may have doomed humanity, a small rag-tag group of the remaining heroes fights for survival--whilst we also see some incidents in the past that led to the current apocalyptic events.
3.5 out of 5 stars.
