Um, Cyborg? You've got a little 90s all over your face. You, uh, might want to take care of that.

Also, I know this is sort of beating a dead horse now, but the Wonder Woman design they've got here would look so much better with pants.

Especially since she's the only one there without pants. Kinda draws attention to it, y'know?

And Vic, Vic, what have they done to you? This is not an improvement over your original design.

Couldn't agree more, but given all the nerdrage and whining last time they gave her pants, they're kind of damned if they do, damned if they don't really.

As a note, these pages aren't pencilled by Gary Frank - They're Carlos D'Anda, the guy who did the recent Arkham City miniseries. And frankly, I'd much rather he be the lead penciller for the book over Jim Lee, who hasn't been the same since his eye surgery.

Still, as it is? This just feels like a totally unnecessary tie-in. It both totally overstates the threat the Owls present and also makes me question why Batman just hasn't gotten the Justice League in to mop the floor with them anyway.

Agreed. It reads like Johns felt left out of the DCnU's most successful story and editorially mandates he gets to write some Owls too. Next thing you know, we'll see Talons showing up in freaking Green Lantern Corps.

The laughter that came from my mouth when I saw Cyborg on that second page was something so shocked and inhuman that I scared myself. Seriously, what were they thinking...

Also, is the JL still supposed to be those bickering teenagers while the whole Owl thing is going on? This timeline is truly nonsensical.

No, the JL are still meant to be bickering idiots in the modern day. That and the stupid clubhouse nature of the group has carried over to the modern day, given the JL refuse to cooperate with the US government.

Okay, this Justice Leage needs to get more female members if only to cut down on the people asking Wonder Woman out. It wasn't funny the first time, and it's even less funny now.

Also, I may be missing something, but why don't they want GA on the team? Hal is way more annoying.GA at least has more of a brain to back it up.

well the last time they invited someone in (Martian manhunter) he attacked them (though from this issue, it seems like he is waiting for them to... grow up? or be ready for something, so it might have been a test) but once bitten twice shy

also there seems to be some bad blood between GA and AM

And how many Talons are there, they seem to be as disposable as Kleenex.

Well, they didn't pick the fight- they were just caught in the process of trying to kill federal agents who'd been on the Night of the Owls target list.

From: [personal profile] tsunamiwombat
All of DCNu and the New 52 is 90's in design and story aesthetic. Every inch of it. DC is actively trying to recreate the 90's, the last time their comics were super popular and profitable (right before the Crash). Unfortunatly, the market they're trying to tap just doesn't exist anymore, and Comics were successful then in SPITE of the 90's rather than because of it, but try telling that to the horrible out of touch disenfranchised mixture of individuals of advanced age and cryostasisly frozen values, and of course T&A obsessed 16 year old boys, who seem to be making the design decisions.

One of the fundamental problems with Comics is, they tend to be written by people who got into Comics because they were comics fans. One would assume this would be a good thing, passion etc, but everyone has their own idea's about characters, the narrative, and the universe - formed by and nostalgically linked to the comics they read as a kid.

Guess when these gents were fans of DC? Ding ding ding! THE NINETIES! Right before the crash :\
