Justice League Of America #1 (re-boot) mini review !
« on: September 04, 2011, 12:52:18 pm »
First things first. I really don't like the idea of just dismissing 60 years of history for any character. It's disrespectful to fans who have loved a character for decades. Now..it could be that the reboot makes the character a little more interesting but usually it's the same character, with a re-telling of his origin and a new costume. It's just a big waste of time.


So I just finished reading the 1st issue of the new Justice League and it really wasn't very good, IMO. They "introduce" Batman, Green Lantern and Superman and they do it the tried and true way of all three getting in a ****ing contest to see who has a bigger dick. Granted, Supes doesn't show up until the end but he joins in on the dick swinging immediately.


The art by Jim Lee is nice, as little rough looking for him but still really nice and the story is just plain weak. Another Darkseid minion showing up in Gotham preparing the way for Darkseid. Batman chases him down and Green Lantern shows up because he was warned of an alien presence in Gotham. They trade quips:

GL: I'm more powerful than you. I got this.

Batman: Yeah but I'm smarter. Here's your ring back.

GL: Whoa. How did you do that ?

Batman: You weren't paying attention .

And then they face off, mean mugging each other.

It's like they turn into 12 year old boys. Ho-hum.

I might give the rest of them a shot but if this is the precursor to what the future brings for the DC Universe, it's gonna be sad.


Just my 2 cents. Peace out.
