Professor Ivo's daughter.

Synthoid, or " the supervillain with the pathological fear of his own mortality fathered a child and has a good enough relationship with them that they assist him "?

Either's possible, really.

Did...did the comic just Godwin itself?

This was...
Just how exactly does one write a comic about the Justice League when they don't even seem to know the personalities of the people they're meant to be writing?

What a horrible storyline this was.

I legitimately do not understand what I'm supposed to take from this ending. It seems like the League is faking it in the big climax (yeah, sorry), because their personalities get even shriller, more unlikable and more over the top. But if that's true, then (1) it shouldn't work, because you can't change your personality just by unconvincingly pretending to have a different one for forty seconds, and (2) there shouldn't be any of this "we showed him something about himself... and OURSELVES something about OURSELVES!" blather. All you showed yourselves was that Superman is the kind of actor who tries to give himself a migraine when he wants to cry on command.

The alternative is that these guys didn't do ANYTHING deliberate to cause KA's breakdown, they're just all complete jerks. That would at least explain why KA can channel the personalities of seven heroes while remaining a villain. If I were to guess, I'd guess that was the original idea until some editor tried to fix it by making the conclusion a case of the League working together by pretending not to. But if so, they didn't go far enough and some of the untouched parts are openly conflicting with the revisions.

I'd honestly like to see this idea tried by someone who understands the characters... make the composite personality struggle to choose between instilling hope (Superman) and fear (Batman), for example. But even comics may not want to recycle anything from this heap.

i..i..dont know where to start.

Good god was this horrible.

"well we cant disband because if we do, Ivo wins!"um no. You guys beat Amazo with that exact same strategy like 6 years prior to this storyline.

What the fuck is up with the Flash? Its jarring to see Wally this kill crazy. Really the whole League just felt more like dickish wallpaper in the whole storyline.

Does John Stewart get more than like 6 lines this entire arc?

Gah, if working together was the key, then this particular JLA would need a new one in the lock. What a bunch of jerks!
