Mini-Run Review: DC Universe Online Legends #3-6
This has been an interesting series so far. Tying into the video game for the PS3 and PC this bi-weekly series has been generally fun so far. Jumping between the present and future (or as would make more sense, past and present, but whatever) it has been about Lex Luthor and a rag-tag group of survivors trying to fight against the alien Brainiac who has taken over the world, while in the past/present...well, that part is the kind of dull segment.
Are the Justice League so dumb that when fleeing their outer-space base they would forget a member (Aqua Man) and have to do a last-minute rescue? This comic supposes they would, showing how the segments that take place in the past of this comic tend to be sort of lame compared to the much more interesting bits in the future where Lex Luthor and crew wear Sinestro rings and fight robots. There is one cool bit in the past where we see why ol' Lex has that electronic eye in the future (ouch) but otherwise I could do without the dull past-bits. Wow, Superman misses his wife Lois Lane who was abducted, boo-hoo.
3.5 out of 5 stars.
