    I just read that Justice League United will be ending in December 2015 with issue #16. The reason why is because Jeff Parker is committed to write Batman '66 Meets The Man From UNCLE. It's kind of a shame to see it go, especially when people are loving the new line-up. Personally, I prefer Jeff Lemire's line-up since it contained characters that classic readers could relate to. I never was a fan of the new JLU, especially the rotating roster. I wonder what's going to happen to Adam Strange and Alanna, Equinox, Animal Man, and Stargirl after the comic is over.

I think you pinpointed the problem with the book - the lack of any stability or focus. When this book took over from the Justice League of America book it had a lot to achieve if it was going to overcome reader apathy over the untimely cancellation of JLA, opting to go for a constantly changing line-up with a cast of thousands was never going to make it an accesible or appealing book as there is nothing here to fix onto and no clear reason for this team/book to exist.

So in the last four years Justice League of America was cancelled, Justice League International, now Justice League United, and I have no idea whether Justice League Dark is in any danger... I do hope they leave it with the main Justice Leaague title and Bryan Hitch's new JLA title, clearly any new endeavor hitting the stands is going to be greeted by the audience with great suspicion by now. \:\|
