> Len Weins Juatice League run is supposed to be classic and one of the series best, but does it still hold up? Does it feel kind of dated? What were some of his best stories? Thanks.
I's fun, fun run, though I must confess to enjoying the later Engelhart and Conway stuff a bit more than Wein's work.
It's not much more dated than your average 1970s superhero book. As to his best stories, I'd point to the three JLA/JSA stories he did in #100-2, 107-8, and #113. The first of those, which is the legendary story that revived the Seven Soldiers of Victory, is to my mind one of the most perfect JLA stories ever told.
I'm also quite fond of the story from #110 that introduces the Injustice Gang and Libra, which continues over into the next issue and manages to pull in Amazo as well.
