Questions to consider after reading (spoilers alert):
This kicks off with 4 stories in one! To focus on one, what details did you like about China in issues 6-7? Did it make sense that it sits in a sea of fire?
Issue 7 has lots more focus and brings the strands of issue 6 together for the battle with Dragonwing’s sister’s rebels. Any favorite moments in the fight scenes?
Issues 8-9, which groups are the best team ups here? Why?
Overall, is this just the right number of Legion members, or far too many to keep track of?
Next week: let’s work on finishing off the storylines of Legion Lost of New 52!
