I've just read this issue for the secondd time, and I have slightly mixed feelings on it, I love the two Wildcats (Tommy has potential, I think, although I still question the wisdom of giving Ted a son) and I liked the scenes between Power Girl and Starman. It was nice to see Jesse defending Damage, who had simply made a mistake to (don't ask me WHY I liked that, but I did for some reason).

Seeing the (now disgraced) F.B.I agent Graves take up the identity of mr. America was also a nice touch (arguably, not a suprise, but a nice touch none the less) and it exemplified ted's speech to Tommy personally. As a fan of the DnA Legion, and anti Waid's Legion, I was also pleased to see Dream Girl. I don't know what's happening with this (and Dream Girl's relationship with Star Boy acknowledged) but I *am* looking forward to the JSA/JLA cross-over (although I won't be picking up the JLA issues, if I can avoid it).

The only thing I'm not sure about is Power Girl as Chairwoman, I just don't think it will work for her character (of course, it doesn''t help that I'm not fond of the character anyway), I would be MUCH more interested in seeing Stargirl as the chairwoman, given how much she has matured whilst she has been with the JSA. Power Girl as chairwoman doesn't work for me, simply because I consider her a scrapper, and a powerhouse but NOT chairwoman material. I'm also not sure about Jesse's power level, and I would like Geoff take some time to define that as well as establish exactly how long they have been married. (It's a mibnor detail, but it would add to the characters for me.)

Cheers.

Power Girl does seem to be a little hot-headed to be leader, but I think the idea is that the other veterans (Scott, Jay, and Ted) are stepping back and Power Girl has seniority after them. Now that she's seemingly back to full Kryptonian levels, she may well be the most powerful person on the team. Narratively, it will be interesting to have her struggle in the leadership position as she learns the ropes.

Stargirl would be a far odder choice as chair. That would be like Kitty Pryde leading the X-Men.
