JLA 42

Not as much a fan of Atlas but he does deserve cross-title appearances and this was a quickie.

Not as clear as word balloons yet the color coded narration boxes made the fight much more interesting than any cliche "OH! I DIDN'T KNOW HE WAS THIS FAST AND STRONG!" type dialogue.

Not as thrilled with the new Titans-oops-thats-JLA lineup as hoped and the transition from last issues pre-formation to this opening fight felt too disjointed.

Not as upset about retcontamination with these 2 past adventures for the alien artifact(s) because they felt like they fit fine AND the cornucopia of cameos had a wonderful pre-80s feel to it where the olde JLA title would always throw in characters from all over the DCU spectrum. [For example remember how cool it was over a decade ago to buy this http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/Justice_League_of_America_Vol_1_144 backissue because of, coincidentally, many of the same guest stars inside.]

Not as clear with who was introduced this issue so can anyone name ALL the villains that appear in this story?

Not as well choreographed fight scenes as rocking fights usually go however was impressed to learn the power of http://www.comicboards.com/php/show.php?msg=comicbattles-2010022413400603 Josiah Power.

Not as up on DC as Marvel crossovers - wondering what was the concern for Roy, here, from the (not as yet read) Cry For Justice? Was that a new (unnecessary) uniform for the Challengers? What is the current status on DC New Gods? And is THAT Metron's Moebius Chair? And what do you make of Ollie's devil(?) dealing with whatshisname?

Not as good as last issue but still okay and solid issue. Looking forward to 43!
