A nice change of pace, with touches from the classic Legion "Murder Most Foul" story.

My one gripe: they really went overboard with Cosmic Boy's character. Until Chameleon Boy nixed the idea, I was expecting Cos's relentlessness to be an act. His "apology" at the end should've been more sincere. I wonder if they were using him as a substitute for Marla Latham from "Murder Most Foul." As for Cosmic Boy, the way I see him is that he is the Legion's most responsible member. Maybe, it makes him a little obsessed with proper procedure at times, but when the rules force him to take a stand against a friend and teammate, he'll be quietly agonizing over whether he made the right decision. And if the decision proves a mistake, he'll be bending over backwards to make it up to the person involved.

That, I suppose, was what primarily bugged me about his characterization in the episode: he seemed to have no real regrets about convicting Timber Wolf. His apology sounded forced.
