Stories to come
This could be considered the first real comic style story of the appearances of the Legion of Super Heroes so far. While other stories have had a bit (or a lot) or hokum, this story is more along the lines of "encounter villain, defeat villain." There are still a lot of suspensions of disbelief here (allowing a hero to go free for a heroic act before death?) at least in comparison to modern comics, but this issue is a lot more readable compared to other Legion stories thus far. It is also the first that gives an idea of the stories to come.
