Not all of the players in Convergence have chosen to follow the rules of combat and “fight for your right to party survive.” Unfortunately, the disillusioned Superman of the ‘Kingdom Come’ future and the impetuous, angry Superboy whose Superman has just died, aren’t among the dissenters. Diagnosis: Kaboom! Your Major Spoilers review of Convergence: Superboy #2 awaits!
Trapped in the 30th Century when his Metropolis was taken, Superboy and the remnants of the mighty Legion of Super-Heroes have held things together for nearly a year. But will they compromise all their beliefs and fight for their freedom at Telos’ command? Your Major Spoilers review of Convergence: Superboy And The Legion Of Super-Heroes #1 awaits!

(I also now owe Adriana and Kristen a dollar for intellectual property.)

For at least one Justice Society stalwart, the answer is in these pages. Your Major Spoilers (retro) review awaits!
Or – “I Still Remember The FIRST Superboy #0.” The New 52 has made a lot of changes to a lot of characters, but none is as welcome as finally seeing Superboy in a costume that wasn’t horribly dated within seven minutes of its creation. Will the REST of this special origin issue make readers as happy? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
