They can take out Amazo with no problem. But an aging writer with cancer and a woman in leopard skin leotards easily defeat them.
Even though everyone saw this two months ago on every news program across the country, here's another scan of Superman and Wonder Woman making out in the sky because I promise to show as much intimacy in my commentaries as possible.
Not as good as Supergirl pleasing herself, but not bad nevertheless.
And since Superman wouldn't fuck Wonder Woman, she's got to find it somewhere else. Five days later and a Tony S. Daniel double splash page later and Wonder Woman has found her partner.
Daniel, Tony S. "Scissoring in the Park." 2011. Ink on Paper. 13 1/4 by 10 1/4 inches.
The Cheetah knocks Wonder Woman unconscious and leaves her for the Justice League to find. I guess since they were previously friends, she's decided to let Wonder Woman live.
Instead of rushing out to nab The Cheetah, the Justice League decides to take it slow and think through their actions. They've never seen Wonder Woman laid low like that, so Batman and Aquaman head off to interview Steve Trevor about The Cheetah. Barbara Minerva was Diana's first real friend and she helped her and Steve Trevor with their mythological adventures. Eventually she began cataloging items in ARGUS's Black Room. It was there that she cut herself on a mystic Amazonian blade and became possessed by Goddess of the Hunt, Cheetah.
That explains why she had the power to knock out Wonder Woman since Wonder Woman is merely a demigod. During all of this explication, Tony Daniel's artwork just continues to deteriorate. Those first two pictures I scanned? Really well done. But then he draws this guy and claims it's Steve Trevor:
Seriously. This is Steve Trevor. It is!
No wait. I think this is Steve Trevor!
Cyborg does some research and narrows down the possible area of the tribe in the Congo.
The Justice League begins talking about Steve Trevor and Diana's relationship when they should have been keeping an eye out for wild animals. Because by the time Batman notices movement behind them, it's too late! Cheetah slashes Batman in the chest (which probably just knocks the wind out of him because even her goddess claws probably can't penetrate his suit), slices The Flash's Achilles Tendons, dodges Cyborg's white noise blast, and bites Superman in the throat. And guess what that means?!
Super Fabulous Kryptonian Werecheetah! Rowr indeed!
You would think DC would have a reference sketch of Steve Trevor somewhere in the building.
The second part of the story has Green Arrow visiting with Steve Trevor. He had a run in with a guy named Multiplex teamed up with some super powered somebody that Green Arrow didn't get a look at before Green Arrow was knocked out. But he did recover a communicator with an insignia that I don't recognize.
Some kind of Injustice League?
Justice League #13 Rating: +1 Ranking. Overall, I just really enjoy the pacing of this comic book. A good percentage is spent on character interactions, a good percentage on plot, and just enough on action to keep the story super barreling along.
