  • When the Legion is busy fighting monsters that are eating the Earth's ionosphere along with two new members, a villain named Starfinger attacks the city. Now its up to the rejects of the Legion audition to save the day, but can they?

    This episode was alright. It wasn't the best of the episodes so far, but it was still pretty good. What was interesting was to see a lot of new characters from the comics like Star Boy, Element Lad, Sun Boy, Tyroc, Blok, Matter-Eater Lad, Chlorophyll Kid, Color Kid, Infectious Lass, and Stone Boy. It didn't seems to have as much excitement and adventure like the previous episodes, but it had a good plot and theme. The episode had some funny moments but Starfinger seemes pretty weird. If his character was made a little more serious then it would become much better. He reminds me a lot of Control Freak from Teen Titans. It was cool to see the auditions and the new members of the Legion. Now the Legion of Substitute Heroes has finally formed. Overall, it was a good episode but not the best.
