Legion of Super Heroes season 2
almost too much lore, as they crammed a whole mess of stuff into a mere 13 episodes. the main storyline (or so we are led to believe) is Imperiex come to the 30th century from the 40th to save himself. a Superman clone, Kell-El has been created to stop him. so he is there as well as a more seasoned Superman to help battle Imperiex. should have just made him Mon-El and been done with it.
it's all pretty well done, but I wish they had been able to get 26 episodes so many of these things would seem less crammed together. and somewhere along the line they forgot that Bouncing Boy and not Cosmic Boy (Wil Wheaton) was the leader of the Legion.
and then Imperiex meets a pretty gruesome (off camera) death, when Brainiac 5 gets returns to his roots. nice to hear Corey Burton reprise that role! I suppose it's a slightly "darker" season, but overall it's just more dramatic. I hate the whole darker label. of course, it ends on a slight (and ever so predictable) cliffhanger, never to be resolved since there was no third season. alas.
