Hmmm... on one hand, Reis/Prado. On the other, Finch. Somewhere in the middle, but closer to the other, Jim Lee. And all with a dash of Johns...

I really liked the issue, especially the scene were Diana and Clark finally kissed.

Plus the teaser pages had me screaming!!!

5/5 loved it! Jim Lee knocked it out of park. And the Superman/Wonder Woman scene at the end was incredibly well written. They both feel alone! But now they're alone together lol!

I love Jim Lee's artwork and John's storytelling, especially Johns efforts to make Aqauman a badass by trying to become the leader. Moreover, I was impressed that Hal Jordan would be the fall guy for the team. I hope he doesn't leave for good though, I like this line up and I would hate to see it break up after just 12 issues. It always bothers me when they change the line up after a few issues.

I really felt sorry for Steve Trevor. It was like getting dumped by Kate Upton for a second time. Talk about adding insult to injury. However, I do like how Diana and Kal El shared a moment.

The only thing I really didn't enjoy was the villain. Didn't live up to the build up and that's why I gave it a 4/5.

Looking forward to what happens next.

Agreed on all points. The bit with Hal was really surprising to me given the depiction of him in this book so far, but I thought it worked well.

Don't like the art, AT ALL. Those "ghosts" felt more like an excuse for Jim Lee to be as line crazy as he wants to be.

Hated the villain from the get go, and his easy and ridiculous downfall certainly did not change that. Hunter Zolomon can only work once, Geoff.

The Wonder Woman/Superman conversation was weird. We're literally TOLD what Diana is feeling and then I'm supposed to be understanding when she has a heart-to-heart convo about it five pages later? Bullshit. That's not development and not refreshing. I understand that its hard to balance all out action with 7 characters, especially characters as big as these (six) are...but in no way does that excuse this book from forcing situations down our throat. There are a lot of ideas here and very poor execution.

So Green Lantern quits the League so the League can save face? So, lets say they hold a press conference and says he was the reason for the fight. And they go on to be a great team together without him. Why couldn't you do the same thing WITH Green Lantern? What drastic steps are you taking to ensure you don't do what you have been doing for the last five years? Its just not thought out. And with big teases to roster expansion, I've pretty much given up on getting anything substantial from these characters. This is a beat em up and leave em book. Nothing more, and potentially less.

I understand where you're coming from West as I read similar opinions.

I personally don't have a problem with Wonder Woman and Superman kissing after confiding in one another. I mean, we've seen characters have sex with each other with far less development and personal relationship. For now, it's just a kiss. I'll see how the rest of the relationship develops.

As far as Hal leaving the League, well they didnt kick him out, he let on his own free will. In fact, Batman and others asked Hal to think it over he before left and work this mess out. When Hal started the fight with Wonder Woman it was caught on video and broadcast around the world. It caused fear and concern as the team's stability and harmony was in question and thus a threat to destroy innocent lives. I think Hal made the drastic move to show the public they are accountable for their actions and accept the consequences; that the Justice League has checks and balances to help earn the public's trust again. You can see from the teasors, there's a Justice League of America being put together, because the Justice League is really trusted.

I still feel there is substance to be found in this Justice League series coming down the road. We're seeing Aquaman challenging for leadership of the Justice League, Wonder Woman discovering that men and women can be in loving relationships and that she wants to be in one, and thus seeks confort in Superman who understands what she's going through. Remember, at this point, Wonder Woman does not have a secret identity and there's no way for her to interact with normal people the way the other members of the league are able to. She's still trying to find her way in this new world.

I think with the Trinity War upcoming, we'll see more character development and probably why the Justice League should disband as they are like a disfunctional family.

Finally picked this up and I was actually suprised by how much I enjoyed it.
Like the first stroy arc the final battle was alittle underwhelming but I liked everything else.

Though I hope after all of the third army madness and trinity war, Hal will eventualy return to the team.

I really don't like that Johns has now declared that the JL has been around for *FIVE YEARS* and somehow never got their act together to become a cohesive team.

Of course it leaves the doors open for a whole lot of untold tales of this New52 JL during these five years, but it sucks that it will almost have to involve the various team members not really getting along. (aside from Supes/Bats and GL/Flash)
