Secret Origin Of The Legion


Adventure Comics #516
Written by Paul Levitz

Co-Feature by Jeff Lemire

The main feature was really good as the now deceased R.J. Brande tells his life story and how he created the Legion. It was a heartwarming tale about an alien who just wanted the universe to work together and be peaceful. I loved it and it made a great “secret origin” for the Legion. The first part of this new Atom back-up annoyed the hell out of me, not just because it stars the boring old Ray Palmer instead of Ryan Choi who was brutally murdered over in Titans – but because the villain is Calculator! We don’t need any more Calculator stories for a while! Come on he should have stayed in Arkham after the Batgirl arc. I am so sick of this guy.
