Justice League 037
| > “JUSTICE LOST” part four! As public confidence in the League continues to fall, strained relationships within the team are set aside when Simon Baz is kidnapped by the mysterious figure known as the Fan: a zealous Justice League acolyte who was inspired by the team as a youth and who now deals death to the League’s enemies. The Fan knows literally every detail about the League membership’s powers and tactics, and easily turns their own systems and resources against them “for their own good.|
Let me preface by saying, haven't read the main JL title since some time before Batman's Justice League OF AMERICA book came out. So the blurbs from another bulletin board below (in italics) helped clear up some lingering questions from the story.
So. He's with the JL team on past mission. Is it a team up or was he a member in that flashback mission??
| > Do people even recognise Hal anymore, it's been ages since he did regular hero stuff on earth?|
| > You're just being a jerk here, Bruce. Jumping shadow to shadow to mess with Cruz.|
| > Hitch's at least had better art|
This was NOT that bad at all. It was fine in fact.
| > Is the Shaggy Man fight supposed to be a flashback with the Rebirth costumes?|
| > So, is this some sort of thinly veiled attack on fans who dislike replacement diversity characters?|
| > They mean Mr Mind, right?|
Kinda thought the same for a moment but there appears absolutely no clue that's who it is.
| > working out while smoking is edgy|
| > If mental block was preventing him from seeing it then how could she not find him?|
Confusing plot device?
| > It feels like it's been forever since I've actually seen the "truth, justice, and the american way" quote completed. It seems like every time it gets brought up, it's gets cut off before the american way.|
Props here, then.
| > I'm guessing the little storehouse was actually a separate but connected building, and the bar is the little green building with the sticking out sign.|
| > This Lantern stuff was done before with the Phantom Lantern, which Priest didn't read.|
| > Priest remembers that the current Watchtower was a gift from Lex.|
This was news to me. How long before that comes back to bite the team in the butt.
| > This isn't necessarily bad but it's a done before concept and each issue just feels like a chore to read...|
There may be some truth to this - as plotlines are often just rehash but the motivations of the perpetrator has enough of a twist to make me curious what the outcome will be.
| > Why Simon is praying and Jessica talks like a gringo?|
| > AEMBRACE?|
Is that a typo or a Themysciran word?
| > This run is very average, which means it's by far the best Justice League of America run in YEARS.|
| > Word bubbles on a cover? what is this the Silver Age!|
Liked that. Even thought they had to be cropped for my new banner submission to be considered.
| > This cover was very misleading. There was no blaming of each other and the League spent the whole issue getting along and working well together.|
Yeah. Though it's a neat idea for a story idea. Maybe it's symbolic of everyone throwing false accusations at people like that Congressional Hearing was sorta doing.
