So my local library is selling a hardcover reprint of this awesome story. However, I am not sure if it was such a good idea to remind fans like me how awesome that era of the Justice League was, when Morrison was on top of his game and Aquaman had grown beyond his Silver Age image and looked awesome with his beard and harpoon/hook. I mean, all they're doing is making a direct comparison between the current Forever Evil story and what guys like me view as a superior story published more than a decade ago.

Big Morrison on JLA fan, but that one was a misfire for me. I love the Crime Syndicate, but didn't love this take on them. In my little world, I consider this to be an All-Star Superman annual rather then part of JLA.

Things I did like:
I was kinda fascinated with the weird take on Brainiac.
Alternate Luthor

Things I did not like:
-Why wasn't Luthor in red, blue and gold?
-Calling it "Earth Two"
-Owlman. The original Earth 3 Owlman is a challenge to make cool, and I felt they went the easy route and didn't do much with the actual idea
-Owlman's costume
-Superwoman's being alternate Lois Lane
-Superwoman's weird sex thing with alternate Jimmy Olson
-Alternate Jimmy Olson
-Alternate people have hearts on the other sides of their chests?
-Ultraman's throwaway line about their J'onn being a white Martian, again, too easy
-..... Ultraman's secret identity is a pencil mustache
-Johnny Quick: junkie
-Power Ring: boring
- lots of deaths, kinda glossed over
