SUPERBOY'S LEGION (2001) #2 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Superboy's Legion #2
The Legion of Super-Heroes is all about bravery, sacrifice, teamwork, respect for diversity and sometimes, intense internal conflict. All of those story elements come to the fore as in this Elseworlds tale Superboy must lead his team out of tragic defeat in time to save the United Planets.

The menace behind the plot to kidnap Brainiac 5 has revealed itself to be Luthor, the 21st century criminal genius who somehow lives on 1,000 years later. With the aid of the Fatal Five, Luthor puts into motion his plan to rob Colu of its secrets and turn that knowledge into absolute power. R.J. Brande sits on a political powder-keg back on Earth. Can Kal El keep his team together long enough to save the day when Ultra Boy and other rival elements of the Legion threaten to tear it apart?

Writer Mark Farmer manages to encapsulate many of the major plot lines of the Legion of Super-Heroes' history into a single thread that's alive with dread and menace. The central thrust of most Elseworlds and What If? tales is to validate current continuity by showing how terrible events would turn out if things were different. However, Farmer manages to wring an upbeat ending out of this twisted reality. Also, fans of artist Alan Davis will lap up panel after panel of beautiful depictions of the 31st century's youngest and bravest heroes.
