    cute but not interested.

    I'm confused, Batman doesn't like Hal Jordan but he DOES like Booster Gold?

    Godiva, as in the one from flashpoint? What is she doing there? So far it is alright and let's be honest for basement dwellers that angry mob look pretty athletic.

    So, does Booster represent the US? Because he's as Capitalist and Showboating as they get, so a perfect fit. So wait, is Skeets gone for good now? I don't see him in the previews.

    the dialogue in this preview is dire

    I don't even know who she is but I love Godiva.

    Wait, where's blue beetle?...Wait. Wait. Does this mean that Ted Kord was never killed? Did he ever exist? Does maxwell Lord exist?

    I'm pretty sure 52 is still in continuity. Vixen is in it, neat but where is Martian Manhunter, oh right Stormwatch, it is not the same.

    Anonymous 09/05/11(Mon)13:14 No.29394440
    It did happen.
    They are not going to bring up a ton of continuity for the benefit of the new readers, but as long as nothing is directly contradicted..then it has happened.
    Sidenote: The GL's have always had a thing with Batman, they shine lights and "don't afraid of anything", Bats IS THE NIGHT and scares the shit outta everyone. Besides JLA is an origin for the team and takes place in the past. JLI takes place in the present.
    Action Comics also takes place in the past, Superman takes place in the present.

    I really hope that Rocket Red will be Dmitri. Eh, like it matters. I wont be reading it.

    Anonymous 09/05/11(Mon)13:17 No.29394487
    But it doesn't make any sense for JLI to form AFTER the Brother Eye incident. Or, for that matter, for there to even be a brother eye incident if it never existed in the first place!

    Anonymous 09/05/11(Mon)13:17 No.29394494
    Because the killing joke is still canon. Which means that Booster's attempt to save Barbara is too. Which means bats know that Booster tried to save her.

    Queen seems to be publically respected. Booster seems to want to go public again.

    Were the Gotham Sirens this sexy a lineup?! I don't think so.

    I guess I'm in the opposite boat. This preview actually makes me want to get the book, and I wasn't planning on getting this before.

    Arsenal is on Red Hood and the Outlaws. They deaged Green Arrow a bit, now he looks like his no longer existing son Connor Hawke.

    I doubt Batman will be in the JLI. He's there to monitor what the UN will do with JLI and whether that threatens the JL. And they re capitalizing on his popularity by having him on the cover.

    Anonymous 09/05/11(Mon)14:05 No.29396662
    Why is Batman on BOTH Justice Leagues?

    You know, I might just pick this up! Thanks Anon.

It read much less nuContinuity offensive than JLA read but also generated less anticipation about the next chapter at its end. The origin/setup idea was a quick and easy way to reestablish the team. It was a little UN-Believable ;\) that they were swiping the 'JL' brand name here - especially with the story suggesting there is no intended connection between them.

Oddball combination of USA heroes to include for international scrutiny.
Costume tweaks on Booster, Hawk, and Rocket Red, right?
Captain Atom sporting an energy flowing m-Ororo-hawk is - creepy.
Frankenstien guy must have pinged some demographics during DN&BD to be included.
GA w/o beard probably signifies de-aging.
Two Outsiders are not forgotten -but not present- and this is probably the 1st cameo appearance of yet another Hawkman incarnation.
The international choices are perfectly fine but WHO IS THAT BIG BEARDED HEAD?!

The UN handlers were okay as they got plenty of intro facetime. The issue villain/threat was too underwhelming even though it did involve a patented giant robotman - or is that a Signal Master?

Its cliche enough when supervillains easily breach hero HQ security and trash the place but when Tom, Dick and minusHarry can so easily blow the place up it is a little hard to swallow.

For some reason want to like Godiva but there was hardly anything here to warm up to her - as she is most unfamiliar to me. Next most unkown is August General who unfortunately didnt really show what he or his trident could do here - but at least he can be seen with a chip on his shoulder towards Russia which was the only real character dynamic that played out here. Oh, there was Guy being a lovable jerk but then thats what he is already noted for.

As for Batman, there is no mention of Batman Inc. or feel for the Batverse. (Thats been a pet peeve since before COIE 1.) So, it appears once again that DC has yet to convince, to a fault, that this is the same Dark Knight after this latest FP CRISIS. \:\(
