I do like these characters, I liked what Tom Taylor did in trying to introduce new faces and new energy, but since he left I have not enjoyed this title much nor had any confidence in its direction, not as much as I did in its first year or so.
I sympathise with Dan Abnett to some degree as this is what he has inherited and no matter what he would like to do I have strong doubts he will achieve anything significant with such editorial malaise and resistance from the publisher. So given the way the title continues to flounder, and the nature of the Rebirth push, I would be open to closing the title and hope for better days with the 'new' Justice Society that has been suggested.
It started out as one of the best of the titles to come out of the New 52, but If Earth-2 deserves to be remembered or judged by history it will be as the book that refused to introduce and revive the Justice Society - Four years into this series and we still have no Justice Society. Just an unnamed band of ragtag heroes with nothing actually holding them together but geography and circumstance. And that is a very sad thing to remember this series by indeed.
