    Might pick up Legion of Three Worlds if the reviews are good and the spoilers sound interesting. I like Superboy-Prime but have given up on Final Crisis, don't like the Legion at the best of times and don't want to be confused by having to figure out why there's three versions of them (and I haven't read Lightning Saga or Johns' Action Legion arc, which I'd expect to be referenced as well).

    There are three versions because the Legion has been rebooted twice. Once in '94 and again in '04.

    I know, but I mean the in-story reason for there being three versions of the Legion.
