    Batman was smug, Lantern was cocky, Supes was a jerk, Cyborg was lame.

    I've gotta say, if I didn't know this was going to be the Justice League, this comic wouldn't be interesting to me at all. None of the characters did any development in a way that impressed or interested me or made them seem like anything but power-mad.

    We didn't see anywhere near enough of Supes

    Anonymous 09/01/11(Thu)01:06 No.29257289
    He was just in the middle of what looks like a pretty big battle, from my predictions, likely with a fire breathing alien transformer, then a space cop jumps in and supes hears him saying he's going to take him down.

    Newsflash: These guys are all meeting each other the first time. As far as they're concerned, every other than them is some know-nothing idiot. They're self-reliant, it's what's kept them alive. The idea of a team

    We don't have any context yet. He could be under mind control, he could be an imposter, or he could just be a wet-behind-the-ears superhero.

    Superman looked sexy.

    Amazing how the same people who said Superman: Earth One "missed the point" are jumping to proclaim this as excellent.

    You react like I was complaining. I was simply stating how they came off (not like $*#&S). They behaved fine for the context they were in as the characters they are. Batman in that scenario (taking Hal's ring) should be smug.Not every statement is an attack against something, even though this is the internet.

    Meh. If he's supposed to be the superhero that everyone likes, or at least the only one that the public really warms up to in the new, unfriendlier DCU... he's not doing a swell job of it in the first appearance of the new Superman. I'm not saying "Superman is perfect!" because, well, the best Superman stories are the ones that highlight his humanity and how, at the end of the day, he's just a farm boy from Kansas at heart.

    Oh, I like his pencils a lot. His designs are terrible, however. WHY DOES SUPERMAN WEAR ARMOR?!

    Then don't read the book. The relaunch is mostly for the sake of new readers anyway.

    I think that's why longtime fans have a right to be mad. I also didn't see a lot of new people in the comic store today... maybe if they tried making the comics good instead of just new...

    Listen guys whether you like it or not this is already bringing people into comics. I've been talking to people today who I never would have thought would be interested in JL and they're buying cause they like the accessibility of starting fresh with the Superheroes that they remember from their youth.

    I bought a DC book for the first time in years. Justice League has sold over 200,000 copies, a feat no comic has accomplished for a LONG time. You're in the minority chum, sorry.

    Anonymous 09/01/11(Thu)01:22 No.29257703
    That was 200,000 preorders, based on hype and marketing. It's yet to be seen how its actually reacted to.

    Anonymous 09/01/11(Thu)01:28 No.29257848
    I thought it was awesome. Batman and GL palling around was gold.

    it's Ultimate DC,http://www.urimage.net/images/FkZlj.jpg, what did you expect?

    The idea was to make the heroes seem more human, and grounded

    It is armor. It's confirmed to be armor.
    Not battle armor, ceremonial armor.

    They're making it sound like selling 200,000 (if it's actual sales or just preorders or what was ordered by the comic shops) will be the savior of the industry, even though 350,000 couldn't.

    Maybe that's how John Byrne's Krypton was, but nothing about his take survives.

    Cyborg did his sports thing, and had his "Dad I am disappoint" moment.

    Johns tends to paint Bats as a bit of a hypocrite all around. I appreciate that he's not making Hal the overall greatest thing in the world, but he's long made him kind of a douche who everybody still loves, so I don't have amazingly high hopes. Cyborg's pages would be really good... in a Cyborg solo book.

    Cyborg's daddy issues aren't too entertaining...

    at least these characters are more readable than Millar's characters

    Justice League is only $4 because it's more than 22 pages.

    New readers like it. Older Readers hate it.

    Anonymous 09/01/11(Thu)03:47 No.29260931
    I wonder if this arc might end with Cyborg becoming Cyborg, then the JL looking at him wondering, "What do we do with you then"?
    Then Batman goes "LETS FORM A TEAM OF CHILDREN TO FIGHT CRIME! You can work with Robin."
    "Who's Robin?"
    "An 8 year old I adopted and trained to fight crime with me."
    Flash forward to the present day, and Cyborg's got the age and experience to join the JA.
