I'm not sure how much of Levitz's Legion series will come out of this crossover. It seems mostly like a Superman story that also involves some of the Legion.

I think it'll finish up the Legion in the 21st century subplot that's been playing through the Superman books for a little while. And hopefully it'll free up Tellus, Quislet, etc. to appear in Levitz's run.

I wonder why they didn't include Action in this.

"I wonder why they didn't include Action in this."

Probably because Mon-el is headlining Superman right now and Action is mainly Nightwing and Flamebird.
I too am looking forward to this!

So the Legion will be in TWO books beginning this summer?

Has there been any comment from DC about what will distinguish the two titles?

The title is "Last Stand of New Krypton", of which Nightwing and Flamebird are, ya know... Kryptonian. Thus, I wonder why Action isn't included in this.

Adventure Comics will have a six part Secret Origins story. So, in effect, it'll be tales set in the past...

...At least for the first 6 issues.

Nightwing and Flamebird are battling Jax-Ur (the Phantom Zone villain) and Rao (the Kryptonian sun god) in the next three issues of Action Comics, which ships twice next month.
