THE LEGION OF NOTHING

Silver Age of Comics

By Unrak, author of True North

May 27, 2015: This story follows the next generation of heroes who take over the superhero team their, now retired or deceased, grandparents created in the 1940’s.

This story offers a really fun read. Morality is black/white, and the good guys definitely wear the white hats.

There is a large cast of characters, some developed very well. This large cast was a bit of a problem as there were characters I really wanted to get to know better who did not get the "screen time" they could have used. For instance the team speedster is black and there are some really interesting comments about her grandfather’s struggles being accepted as a black superhero during the 50s and 60s. Jim give us more grandpa!

One of the things that makes this story so fun is some of the side characters who can really steal the show . . . Rhino I’m looking at you! And let us not forget the Yellow Burrito and his Burrito Gun.

Overall this is a really entertaining read. Well worth the time if you are into the genre.
