-SURPRISE! JUSTICE LEAGUE WAS ACTUALLY PRETTY GOOD!
The preview pages from a few weeks back left me feeling very cold. Batman didn’t feel like Batman. Green Lantern didn’t feel like Green Lantern. It all felt very lame and forced. Cut to Wednesday afternoon when I sat down with the book and two pages pulled it all together (no spoilers, but it’s the ones where Hal and Bruce are discussing their powersets) and I was in. It was all uphill from there. It reminds me a bit of how it felt when the heroes were feeling each other out in Supreme Power. Everyone is young and brash and figuring themselves out, and so help me I think it’s exactly the fresh take I needed to enjoy a Justice League book.
