This was the worst episode of the season. I didn’t really buy most of the heroes’ “greatest fears”. The story was too linear. Also, I could see the ending coming a mile away, probably because I’ve seen this plot several times before in other shows. This episode was worth seeing but I probably wouldn’t ever watch it again – two stars.

I like all of the Legion members so far except Brainiac 5. His personality is annoying – he’s either whining at Superman or clinging to Superman like an old ex-girlfriend. Enough! Superman’s just too nice of a guy to tell him to stop acting like a needy child. He’s supposed to be super-smart but not emotional yet he seems just the opposite.

But there’s more than his personality; his powers stink on ice. I’ve never much cared for shape-shifters that can so radically change their size like he does. Plus, last time everyone Brainiac got “hurt”, everyone dumped on Superman because he didn’t answer the call for help (Legacy). Yet all Brainiac had to do was morph his arm back into shape! This time, Superman put himself on the line and it turns out that Brainiac just needs to re-load.

As bad as the Legion story was in Justice League Unlimited, I think I prefer that version of Brainiac-5 all over this one. I’m new to the Legion so I was not expecting much. From the preview pics, I was really not expecting to like Bouncing Boy but he has turned out to be cool. Likewise, I thought Superboy was going to be written off as a rube or country bumpkin; instead, he’s not only an admirable hero but has really kicked some butt!

Otherwise, Legion of Super Heroes is still one of the best animated shows on television right now. All of the other episodes besides Fear Factory have interesting characters, good stories, and exciting action.
