> This issue was great.

And the art! Sorry, still really liking the art. It looks like a lot of effort and it seems to pay off...
> Other than his last two issues I haven't been feeling McDuffie's work, but ever since his FC lead in the stories have been getting better.

> In this issue we see Amazo on the loose and basically tearing through the JLA. I won't go into much detail (emerick does that so much better than I do),

Heh! Thanks for that, spiderprince!
> but we see lots of really smart fighting on both the heroes behalf and Amazo's behalf. Plus the mystery of what's happening with Vixen deepens. I'm looking forward to the next issue.

Agreed!



And here's some character by character reactions...

Amazo: Great team-buster villain. Lives up to his cred here. Unfortunately, editorial mandate is (most likely) JLA cant die (maybe we'll get one this time?) so them surviving not one but multiple otherwise DEADLY attacks is more frustrating than cliche. Solid issue of fighting.

Black Canary: Just there. Well, at least just issue highlights her compassionate side a bit. Still havent seen her earn her chairwomanship seat yet.

Zatana: Remind me who Anansi this uhm spider-man is? Never liked her do-anything powers but she always looks great doing anything. At least here, it somewhat tries to show she has limits and cant practically take on any villain by herself - though she'e look great trying. ;\-\) She has a fine showing here.

Vixen: Interesting Animal Man tie in. Anyone already aware of this? Predicted this threat was headed to her showdown with Amazo but am interested and now blind to where it will go. (Hopefully, it's not as simple as Batman pushing Amazo thru the Slideways door.)

Steel: Decent cameo. Nice plot device to showcase Batman's mystique.

Batman: He's Batman.

Superman: Pawned again. At least, nice plot device to showcase... Firestorm actually.

Firestorm: Ha! Where Superman shows FS's strengths neatly, Amazo shows FS's kryptonite neatly. Still not familiar with the new hosts but this is a good way to show some focus.

Black Lightning: Just there. Might look for scan to add to the OMB.

Kendra: Just there. At least she got to deliver the best line: "I promise he's through." \:D

Arsenal: At least they didnt play the Relationship Card. It was nice him following Diana's orders without specifically saying out loud, "Waah, but I'm more worried about Kendra."

Wonder Woman: Just there. "X amount of time." Is a much quicker reply than the lame excuse she gave Jeff. All defense and no offense is completely different tactic from Trinity vs Konvict.

Green Lantern: Forgot about him 'til he showed. Too many heavy hitters to believe they should lose this issue - with no casualties for sure at this point. Hal shouldve been experienced as Clark to know to take care of the civilians first.

FLASH: Wow, Wally continues to shine in this title! Awesome heroics. Enjoyed how his powers were handled here. Thought Speed Force was gone though. Also, this seems all for naught with the Flash Rebirth rumors...









Pleeease vote!
Who looks at the Lookers?
GOOD GOD, not again?!?!
