I think their Darkest Hour would be if Godiva stood alone.
And now, this month's Justice League International:
Booster is left standing in ragged clothing to show that he either survived an explosion, turned into the Hulk, or was attacked by a sex-crazed elderly landlady. He's holding an unconscious Fire while Guy Gardner uses his ring to fly some of the injured civilians to safety. They assess the situation:
Oh? There were energy creatures as well?
With asses even?
Oh, here they are! And they were on Page Two as well but they just looked like part of the explosion.
Wouldn't it have been funny if he had been watching from the same roof Batman had been watching?
Just another example that DC's editors suck. I don't mind reading mistakes like this in people's Tumblrs. But I expect this kind of stupid crap to be missing from periodicals employing FOUR editors. Fuck you, Mike Marts, Harvey Richards, Brian Smith, and Darren Shan.
Back to the story, Rocket Red is now dead and probably fifteen fans are crying and writing angry letters to DC. "He was my favorite!" "I loved the way he incorrectly used American slang!" "Other stuff that DC's editors won't read because they're obviously lazy assholes!"
Booster also finds the bodies of Andre Briggs and Emerson Esposito, their United Nations liaisons. Or managers. Or agents. You know, I don't really know what they were doing. Booster also finds some of Rocket Red's armor and has Skeets link to it and pull off any information he can.
Back at the hospital, Lightweaver (the bad guy!) waits for the JLI to arrive so that he can finish them off! How come six other titles are ending at Issue #8 but this issue is really making it feel like the end for them. I think Dan Jurgens just didn't like the whole United Nations idea. Who wants a super team controlled by government agencies?
Shut up, you stupid bitch. Stick by your decisions, you flaming cunt rag.
Booster storms up to the roof as angry as I am about the turn of events. And waiting to kill him is Lightweaver. Booster has a bit of a fight with this guy but he beats up Booster pretty quickly. Which is embarrassing because he's saying things like, "I'm Lightweaver and I'm gonna light you up!" and "The bomb was the shock; I was the awe!" and "That's the best you got? Seriously?" and "You ain't in my class, bro." Yep. Booster Gold was beat up by a guy who actually says 'Bro'.
Bro, that's embarrassing.
And just when Booster Gold is about to be killed by Lightweaver's samurai light show, Batwing shows up to save the day!
Well, that's it for Justice League International #7. And I'm pretty disappointed. I thought this was supposed to be one of the fun comics? How much fun are we having now that Rocket Red is dead, Fire is in a coma, Vixen may never walk again (but who the fuck cares? She can still fly, right? And can't she still walk by using the power of any animal nearby that can walk?!), and Ice has multiple fractures and internal damage (Gods can be internally damaged? Cool!). I'm going to have to drop Justice League International one rank simply because it's supposed to be fun and if it is going to get serious on occasion, don't do it this quickly! Sheesh. And why is Batwing suddenly here? Shouldn't he be defending Africa? Oh! He's probably going to join the JLI as the African representative, replacing the crippled Vixen! And Vixen can become the new Oracle!
