Even though it seems a villain vs. heroes story, there is an ominous sense of something larger at hand. The JLA is taken out of commission and Lex Luthor and his allies become the new guardians of humanity.

"Justice" doesn't work for me. This is not a story about impending disaster, or some huge threat to Earth that the Justice League must band together to fight. Instead, what happens here is that all of the DC Super-villains get together and work out a master plan to destroy all of the Justice League. Page by page, their plan plays itself out, only to be thwarted with some hand-wavey powers of JLA members.

In other words, what's being attacked here is the JLA itself, not the planet which the JLA must defend. That means that this book has the opportunity to be a more intimate character study than typical comic book fodder, and indeed it almost shapes up like it might be, with a different hero playing narrator in each volume. But none of these characters have any insightful moments or arcs, it winds up being a lot of filler in the narration boxes. There are a few nice moments, particularly when Superman is observed by another JLA members as being afraid, and not really believing what he's telling people about how they're going to be safe, but aside from a small handful of moments like this, we never go beyond the surface.

The most interesting part of the story was a conflict between Plastic Man and Elongated Man, who have the same super-powers. Elongated Man is considered a "second-string" JLA member, and he clashes with Plastic Man about who deserves to be in the JLA and who doesn't. These kinds of moments are what make for interesting character drama in comic books, but they are few and far between.

There isn't much to write home about here, it's really a 2-star book, but as always any book illustrated entirely by Alex Ross gets a bonus star from me. I just love the guy's art style, everything he's ever done is gorgeous and it's my favorite comic book style. Great visuals, weak story. ( )

I'm not sure how original the story is but as always Ross's art is beautiful. ( )

I'm glad I got this out from the library, because I'd have been pretty annoyed if I'd paid for this utterly uninspiring and unmemorable piece of work.

What is it about DC and Marvel that they simply CANNOT publish a memorable or well-written comic or miniseries unless one of a very small number of writers is part of the project? At this point, if it's not by Alan Moore or Neil Gaiman, my expectations are virtually nil.

I read the whole series - volumes 1, 2, and 3. What was it about? The bad guys (primarily Lex Luthor and Brainiac) get together and screw over the good guys (the usual cast: Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and the rest of the Justice League of America).

Look, the art is the usual brightly-colored eye candy. And the characters are the same old classic characters who can be magic in the hands of a decent writer, but are leaden and uninteresting in the hands of the usual DC gang of incompetents.

Worst of all, the whole damned thing was confusing. Was it just that the original comic book miniseries assumed that the readers were all desperate fanboys who were reading everything that DC produced, and so left half the plot out of this series because it was all covered elsewhere? I doubt it. All I know is that for much of the novel I didn't know what was going on. And worse, I didn't CARE.

Confusing, poorly written, uninspired. I read it two or three days ago, and the ONLY memory I have from it is Wonder Woman looking like a zombie because she was poisoned and was therefore turning back into earth. I didn't know she was made from earth to begin with - I'm pretty sure that's just something the writers added for this particular series - but from three all three volumes that's the ONLY thing I remember. And it's not really WORTH remembering.

And I have a good memory, mind you!

Sad. Just sad. I don't understand why DC won't or can't get decent writers. Someone should smack them with a clue-by-four. ( )

It's hard to review this without being able to read the second half of the story. Alex Ross' art is, as usual, beautiful, and the premise of the story, that all the super-villains have banded together to save the world, is very interesting.

I assume that when this series ends, the status quo will be resumed, and the villains will again be working for the usual selfish or evil motives, but it would be interesting to see the DC Universe try to stick this out, with both villains and heroes trying to work for the betterment of humanity, only with different ideas about the role of super-powered individuals.

But a lot of my opinion is going to depend on where the story goes from here. I'm skeptical about the apparent ease with which the villains have managed to dispose of the heroes as well as the decision to send the Riddler to hack into Bruce Wayne's computers (And really, he couldn't figure out that Batman must be Wayne? The idea that Batman would have hacked into the computer just to disguise his own biometrics as Wayne is kind of a stretch.). ( )
