Should I even read this comic? Are the JLI just going to get beaten down again?
Batman. Quiet. Determined. Driven.Here's my description of the team:
Booster Gold. Irreverent. Brash. Leader-in-training.
Godiva. Lacks confidence. Secretive. A dark past.
Batwing. Enigmatic. Guarded. Cautious.
Guy Gardner. Forceful. Arrogant. Tries to hid the fact that he cares.
O.M.A.C. Young man in a monster's body--a breath away from losing control.
Batman. Competent. Intelligent. Bad-ass.
Booster Gold. Sell out. Failure. Not Batman.
Godiva. Creepy power. Boobs. Not Batman.
Batwing. Doing Batman a favor by associating with this team. Kind of Batman.
Guy Gardner. Green Lantern. Once knocked out by Batman in one punch.
O.M.A.C. Series canceled. Sucked Batman's dick to make the team.
How many issues before "the prospect of failure" simply become "failure"? I think it happened three issues back.
If the Eiffel Tower was destroyed, how will comic book readers know when characters are in France?! It had to be saved!
David (Batwing) visits Mari (Vixen) in her hospital room where she claims she may never walk again. Who cares? She'll still be able to fly, right?
She must be delirious from the morphine. The world needs a team that gets its ass beat every mission? Hell, they get their asses beat when they're not even on missions!
Booster Gold and Godiva visit Bea (Fire) who is also in a coma. They nearly wind up making out on top of Fire. They don't, though, because instead of going for it, Godiva says, "Awkwaaaaaard." I think I remember the exact same scene between Booster and Beetle in Giffen's Justice League.
August General in Iron tries to convince OMAC that living like a monstrous freak has its good points. Most of those good points have to do with smashing other people's faces. But OMAC is more concerned about getting some poontang sometime in the future. I'm not sure why he's so concerned. There must be a group of women (and men) who would be more than happy to fuck a monster.
While they're talking, Batman drops out of the sky the way he does and tells them that the Justice League's monitors have detected Lightweaver's energy signature leaving New York and heading for Washington. So why doesn't the Justice League take care of it? Is it because Wonder Woman is on her Hell Honeymoon and Hal Jordan is in space and Barry Allen is in Gorilla City and Superman is, well, I think Superman is currently available. And Cyborg doesn't have anything better to do! I think they're all just too embarrassed to be seen with the Justice League.
When The Burners (that's the name of the terrorist group that killed Rocket Red and put Fire, Ice, and Vixen in
Look at how the industrialist billionaire deflects the subject by kicking him in the face! Typical fascist bully boy!
Oh, Godiva. So naive. Have you forgotten what comic book you're in? Just give it a few more pages.
Can anyone guess what is about to happen? Yeah, yeah. One character takes out the entire Justice League International in a few pages.
Breakdown apparently has super strength as well as the power to make things decay and recay.
