Subj: Isn't Johns ripping off a lot of JLU animated themes?

Especially the idea that Amanda Waller/the govt. is backing a group to oppose the JL if they go rogue? JLA instead of Cadmus? The Question and conspiracies? Luthor and the villains in the background somewhere. It all seems. . .familiar.

But everything about Johns run seems sort of familiar. Kind of like the Justice League's greatest hits. Big Darkseid fight? Check. Tower of Babel protocol stuff? Check. Satellite HQ shockingly crashing to earth? Check.

I'm not saying that what Johns is doing isn't well done, but it's DONE, y'know? It's pretty hard to top the 4 seasons of JLAnimated as well as the Morrison/Waid era of JLA. So why try? Why not try to do different things, if that's possible?

I suppose that's not realistic. DC probably wanted Johns to come out swinging with the traditionally big stories.

But it would be nice to see something a little substantively different. And remember, it's not like JLAnimated is ancient history! It went off the air just in 2006 for Pete's sake!
