Really interested in seeing the story behind that.

Is it good or bad thing I like Martian Manhunter more than any on these guys, just for that single line?

Ah, Wonder Woman's patented boob-ass shot... it always looks so bloody uncomfortable.

8 issues of practically utter nonsense; a Darkseid arc that was, let's face it, padded for trade...

...and ONE PAGE of a fight and a story that could have been interesting.

I miss a "fun" League.
Be it the BWAHAHAHA-one or the Morrison one (with guys like Steel, Huntress, Plastic Man or that angel guy on board...)

Egad, they're ALL such douches (except Diana and Barry I guess, and she's just Xena these days anyway)

I like interpersonal conflict and clashing egos as much as the next reader, but I also like heroes who are...well yanno, *likeable*.....everything I read with this new JLA just makes me wish Despero would come and stomp 'em all already :P

I suppose this explains why J'onn was identified as a Leaguer, except why does one of the gov't committee talking about them say they've never expanded if he's there?

Also ca they really never have expanded when in the current continuity Bruce has still be out of action with a broken back and Hal stll became Parallax?

This is one of the few times where someone remembered just how frigging powerful J'onn is. I approve of that spread.

Though I agree. Seeing it in a story? Would have been more ideal.

Hmmm, I wonder if they're going to tell this story on JL or Stormwatch...

I wonder if they ever look back to all the times they nearly kill each other for misunderstanding and just laugh...

This part took what was already a pretty fun issue, and made it a VERY interesting and cool one.

Not too drone on with the criticism's but i'm not feeling any "heart" with this league. There aren't any elements here that Johns seems to really be enjoying and playing with.

With the Morrison League it was the "big seven/greek gods allegory" concept and doing the impossible....With Johns/Goyer JSA it was referencing a shit ton of continuity, reconciling the old nature of the JSA with the new kids, and the familial aspect of the JSA

With Nu52 JLA, the heroes feel like assholes, the chemistry is forced, and the one big baddie was nothing more than a world class jobbing/going through the motions to get readers on board. The book feels too "corporate", too "lets throw our number one writer on this book".....If Johns had never written JLA back when he probably had much more choice and less pressure, why would he want to now?

hmmm i kinda like this league too... i think the first arch was supossed to show the league forming up, and the second arc is supposed to show the league as a close knit group, but because they were kinda "forged in fire" they have trust issues. But they are going to obviously open up, and i liked to see how they do that.

i THINK. that Jonn attacking them was supposed to be him testing them for some "big thing" which is what this panel indicated...

opening up with Ryan Choi Element Woman, Mera, the hawks, Deadman and the Mystery Woman, i know a few of those are definately light hearted. so i think this is the league gradually trusting the larger superhero community.

I'm just going to add here that I really don't like this art. It really doesn't have an organic look, like everyone came pre-packaged or something. That probably doesn't describe it well, but it's like the whole thing has a stick up its butt, way too stiff and awkward.

Do you think in a couple of weeks, you can post the Court of Owls/Talons pages from this issue?
