Now that we have finally received the last chapter in this epic, what are your thoughts, impressions, etc.

Personally, as a bimonthly publication, it was occasionally difficult to remember what had happened before but overall, I really liked this. It showed a Justice League and allies that I think many of my age(40+) appreciate( from the 60s and 70s) along with the amazing art of Alex Ross. I found it interesting that the finale combined elements of Identiy Crisis - wiping of villians memories with the Superman movies - removing all nuclear weapons and throwing them into the sun with Batman's analysis of friend and foe alike - weaknesses, threats, etc.


A couple of questions though:

Can anyone name all the Green Lantern's that came to assist? I know I have seen most of them at one point except for the human-like male with the headgear. Is that perhaps the Daxamite GL Sodam Yat that Alan Moore created?

Generally, I liked the series. Alex Ross' art is an obvious strength, and the dialogue was pretty good. However, the plot had some frustrating aspects. The Joker seemed to be thrown in for no other reason than to include him in the series. He didn't really do anything, and didn't confront a single hero(who cares if he took out the Scarecrow). Luthor did nothing until the very end, what a complete waste of a character. And Brainiac, he used to be able to hold his own against Superman, and ran like a rabbit from the JLA. I wasn't impressed. And with all the villains that were assembled, I expected alot more out of the final showdown than what we got. Cheetah goes down with a single head-but, Poison Ivy with one blast from Supergirl's heat-vision. No real battle tactics or teamwork was on offer. That was disappointing.

> I'm 39 and agree this spectular mini-series gave me a chance to re-visit my childhood. The art was beautiful. My only complaint was it felt like to much was crammed into 12 issues. Some characters acting, well out of character. The final showdowns between good and evil seemed a bit rush. But I know it was meant more to express the internal ideas and feelings of the characters. And how they're action and sometimes lack of action effect the world around them

I'm definitely looking forward to whatever hardcover edition that is published on this series

I'm hoping the Legion of Superheroes spread is a prelude to Alex Ross's next big project.
