"For a lot of our social contracts to function on a day-to-day basis, and on a global basis—they’re ripe with opportunities for abuse—and we need to cut to the core of can we be good? That’s the only way this whole thing works. And the Justice League is trying to cut to the core of this. I hope they’re right." - Steve Orlando

Them: Hey Batman why you such a huge, paranoid, asshole?
Batman: The cow down the street from the Kents makes liquid evil milk
Them: .....But why aren't you more trusting though?

Raised by velociraptors is a really cool villain backstory

While I really liked the central concept of the story, that dialogue is so staggeringly direct. It's like there's no nuance or subtext, rather that everyone just explicitly explains how they are feeling at any given moment.

I've liked Orlando in other stuff, but has he been generally this bad on JLA?

He's been as direct with his other stuff.

The difference between them and this is that most of them have one or two protagonists. They get nuance and subtext through their scenes with supporting characters.

This's a team book with seven characters, and he seems committed to giving each of them at least a moment in each issue. Combine that with having to give some definition to the parts of the story that aren't the team, and it's not hard to see how everything would have to move quickly, eschewing lingering on characters' motivation and their expression of the same.

(Sure, the book's double-shipping, which would give him the space to do that. It's also not sticking to telling one story a month even with that.)

Excellent analysis, thank you for that.

Yeah, looking back that seems pretty accurate. It's just so annoyingly staggering here as someone just explictly explains how they are feeling and the next scene is people talking about what was just explicitly told. I really hope Orlando is getting feedback on this as I generally like his stuff.

"He's lying about something..."

"I learned English from reading emergency manuals, with no aural input or human interaction at all, and now I speak it like a native!"

"...But I don't know *what*."

Me too!

Yeah, unless he's got super powers that ain't happening.

I almost read that as an insult to everyone who's ever struggled with English as a second language.

"Hey kids, if you read manuals over and over again you can adapt to having your ESL funding cut!"

Is it wrong that I found that part genuinely offensive?

That's how Tarzan learned English.

They're going somewhere with this.

Yes, definite parallels to Tarzan.

He's book Tarzan. All the tropes are there. Now we'll find out how the writers are planning to subvert them.

With murder.
Definitely murder.
And Batman.

How come there's never been a Batman/Tarzan mashup where the Waynes crash in Africa, a poacher shoots his parents, and Bruce grows up to wear a bat-themed loincloth and fight evil in the jungle? With his gorilla butler.

I think Bats did meet Tarzan back when DC was publishing a Tarzan comic.
