#114 - The Man from the Edge of Tomorrow, Part One

Original Airdate - September 22nd, 2007
In the 41st century, the universe will be terrorized by a warrior named Imperiex. The only person standing in the way of his plans for domination is a clone of the original Superman. But unable to defeat Imperiex and his vast army alone, the clone travels to the 31st century to recruit history’s greatest super hero team, the Legion, to help fight this threat.

Legion of Super Heroes
#115 - The Man from the Edge of Tomorrow, Part Two

Original Airdate - September 29th, 2007
The Legion has returned from the 41st century with Kell-El, a genetically enhanced Superman clone. But Imperiex, the destroyer of galaxies, has reached the 31st century first -- and unleashed all of the Legion's greatest enemies. To restore order and combat this near-invincible foe, the Legion will once again turn to the past for help in the form of an older, more mature Superman with far greater grasp of his powers.

Review:

Good lord this show has picked itself up and flown up up and away in what can so easily be described as a lot of fun. I'm really happy with this two-parter and I liked it a lot better than The Batman's recent two-part opener.

I've heard fans say Legion of Super Heroes did a doofy thing by "going into the future of the future" as opposed to simply "going into the future last season," but I have no problem with it. We already know that every idea has already been done, technically speaking. And I don't mean that as an excuse. It's just that this Legion of Super Heroes opening two-parter was a lot of fun, and the elements worked really well. And man, that was Superman.

The Batman reference? That was Superman - portraying his super strong, invulnerable, yet also sensitive and caring essence, and doing it not as a weakness or as a recessive gene to Batman's brooding lead. And that was complimented even moreso with the fun badboy Kel-El (or "Kon-El," maybe if we want to call him both we can call him both. We're the fans, we'll do what we need to do), since they're like polar opposites. Really fantastic stuff here. Bring it on!
