4.0 out of 5 stars Volume 2 is a Camp Joy July 31 2001
Format:Hardcover
Volume Two of the Legion of Super-Heroes Archives is bright, colourful, campy fun (much of the humour quite unintentional). What a pleasure to soak into this book a little every night before crawling into bed as my dreams could then be populated by giant puppets, a little doll town and severl versions of monsters (usually shaped, like many of the aliens encountered, as some form of lizardy thing). The trouble for the intrpid team seems to orginate often when the Legion rejects a candidate for membership (begging the question of how a team that accepted Bouncing Boy and his super bouncing power and Triplicate Girl with her amazing ability to become three equally useless and identical people instead of simply one can have any criteria for rejecting anyone?). This volume also includes appearances by Supergirl, Jimmy Olsen (as the purple-clothed Elastic Lad) and for high camp charm, the Legion of Super-Pets. The art is appropriate to the stories without dazzling but the real charm is in the unintended (perhaps) smiles the reader will wear entering this romp in the future with some very priceless dialogue by Edmond Hamilton.

Let me clear up something posted by the reviewer from San Francisco. In this volume, you DO NOT GET stories of the Fatal Five, the Adult Legion, or the Sun Eater. The reviewer must have been thinking of another volume. In this volume you get the creation and exploits of the Legion of Substitute Heroes. It's not the best period for the Legion, not even close, but I don't regret buying it. I enjoyed many of these older stories. If this were a stand-alone volume I wouldn't have liked the included choices, but as part of a nine volume set, I think they are representative of this period in the comic's history.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Look at the Legion's Growing Pains May 29 2012
By Kevin M. Derby - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The second volume of the DC Archive Editions collection of the Legion of Super-Heroes, DC's premier heroic team of the future, shows both the strengths and the weaknesses of their early comics. While there are some important tales here (such as the resurrection of one character), there are also too many asides as various supporting characters from Superman's world take over. Add the assorted adventures of the Legion of Substitute Heroes and the Legion of Super Pets and the volume goes a little adrift. There is an excellent introduction from Paul Levitz and fans of the team will enjoy it. But, to be candid, this is not a book for everyone and even a good number of comics fans will not like it and it is a little pricey unless you are a die-hard Legion fan.
