Legion of Super-Heroes/Bugs Bunny Special #1

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Supergirl is dying and the Legion needs a mineral that no longer exists to save her. They send Computo II back in time to find Superboy and the mineral but Computo returns with Bugs Bunny instead. Can the Legion sort things out before Supergirl dies?

When I was buying Bug! The Adventures of Forager (2017-) #2 the other day, I mentioned looking forward to Batman '66 Meets the Legion of Super-Heroes (2017-) #1 and my love for the Legion of Super Heroes in general. The clerk pointed me to this.

Once you get over the initial concept of Bugs Bunny and the Legion of Super Heroes co-existing in the same universe, this was pretty good. It's actually hilarious at times, most of the humor being supplied by Bugs and, surprisingly, Timber Wolf. It feels like a Mystery Science Theater version of a classic Legion tale.

Tom Grummett's art is retro enough to feel right for a tale featuring the late 1960s/early 1970s version of the Legion and Sam Humphries' crafted as suitable a story as possible to feature both teh Legion and Bugs Bunny.

When two things you liked quite a bit as a kid collide like this, it could easily be a train wreck. This was more like dipping your french fries in a milk shake, a delightful surprise. I never imagined Bugs Bunny meeting the Legion of Super Heroes before but it turned out pretty well. 3.5 out of 5 stars.
