I really enjoyed this comic as a Legion fan - although working out how Mon-El fits there while Legion of Three World is going on is pretty confusabubbling. I suspect LO3W was meant to be done by the time this came out. Was still interesting to see him though.

Really enjoyed the Guardian backup story because a) I like the character b) it reminded me we're getting a rocking action figure of him and c) it has Tellus in it - just one panel, but I really can't wait to see what he's doing there and what role he has to play in the current time period.

Other thoughts?

I have loved the Superman family comics since OYL, I have always liked the Jim Harper Guardian, so I am really excited to see him getting used. I am going to have to do some research though, since I don't know much about the Legion so I am unfamiliar with Tellus.

Yeah, what Tellus is doing there is anyone's guess. Hope it makes sense and a good story.

A Tellus Collect & Connect would rock greatly.

I'm not a Guardian fan myself, although I will pick up his Mattel figure, as I think he'll look pretty good on a Superman shelf.  I just always found the character a bit stale, although he seems a bit more fleshed out currently.

I'm buying any Superman book that guest stars a Legion character, so I've been following Mon-El's story for a bit, and grabbed the Tellus appearance.  The books are basically pretty fun, but Superman isn't quite my cup of tea most days.

I've been a fan of the Guardian since World Without A Superman, where I was first introduced to the character.

There seems to be some really interesting stuff happening with Guardian, the whole clone thing, etc. Plus he's got something to do with Tellus so I'm in!
