Editorial Reviews:

Spanning Adventure Comics 350-358 (November 1966-July 1967), the sixth volume of Legion of Super-Heroes Archives marks the true golden age of the LSH.Teen writer Jim Shooter was in full swing with artist Curt Swan, and the stories are some of the team's most memorable: Superboy and Supergirl are replaced by Sir Prize and Miss Terious to face the Devil's Dozen, the adult Legion offers a glimpse of the future, and most importantly, the great band of villains the Fatal Five is formed--by the Legion themselves--to battle the fearsome, galaxy-destroying Sun Eater.--David Horiuchi

Summary: The Legion's Golden Age Begins
Comment: Although the Legion of Super-Heroes had several years of continuty at this point (enough for five "Archives" volumes, in fact) and many, many years lying ahead of it, this is where the real golden age for these characters began. Jim Shooter, still the whiz-kid writer he was before he became a legendary editor, led the Legion down paths of intelligence and daring that were only beginning to be touched on over at Marvel Comics at the time (the early 1960s). This volume introduces the Fatal Five, villains that still plague the Legion to this day, and featured the death of a Legionnaire that became truly iconic. This was the first time I had read these stories, and while I knew the story of the Legionnaire and how he died (it's referenced so often in the years afterwards) I never realized how briefly, relatively speaking, he was a member of the Legion before his death. It's startling that a character who was around for such a short period of time became such a martyr among the Legionnaires. And it's a remarkable story. Halfway through the Legion Archives (so far -- there are 12 volumes in print as of this writing), this is by far the best of the series yet.

Summary: Their Most Important Stories Of All!
Comment: The Legion's most pivotal stories laying the groundwork for continuity of the next three decades. With this volume, you get the Fatal Five, Sun Eater, and Adult Legion stories. Great Jim Shooter writing and beautiful Curt Swan artwork, the definitive Legion of Super-Heroes. If you have to get just one volume out of the series, this is the one.
