If you have the Monday blues – and, let’s face it, it’s very likely that you have, considering that it’s the start of another work week and everything – then why not combat it with some much-recognized comics awesome? Like this, for example:
The Legion of Super-Heroes is one of those things that you either completely buy into or think is confusingly lame, it seems; I’m firmly in the former camp, thinking that the series is one of comics’ greatest high concepts (“It’s teenagers! In the future! With superpowers!”) and loving the optimism and soap opera at the series’ core just as much as the spectrum of colorful costumes and superpowers that go from the classic and original to the ridiculous and amusing and back again. The Legion feels like the most superhero of all superhero comics to me, taking the basic ideas to the extreme and seeing what the result is when everything is turned up to 11. There’s little in superhero comics that is as awesome to me as the Legion of Super-Heroes.
