Justice League Of America #5 (Too easy Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Fri Jun 28, 2013 7:45 am

Hey, would you look at that, Catwoman isn’t actually dead! Who on Earth could have guessed that? Only everyone. I wonder if any of the people who freaked out at DC are going to take back what they said, or is it misogynistic to even fake-out a fridging? This was an OK issue, with plenty of mindless violence, but still some good character moments and interesting teases for future storylines.

I liked the return of Simon Baz, I find him to be an interesting character and was kind of annoyed that Johns just dropped him to make Green Lantern the Sinestro show again. We also got the return of the ridiculously-named Agent Fed! In terms of the JLoA team in action, as I mentioned before, Catwoman ain’t actually dead, it was Martian Manhunter, which was obvious. The best thing about these scenes were Stargirl getting to rescue everyone, the mysterious teases about whoever the leader of the Secret Society is, and the revelation that they were using Chronos to power their mansion.

I find it very interesting that so many of the Agents we’ve seen working for Amanda Waller are characters that were villains before the New 52. First Doctor Light and now Chronos. Is Johns setting up a big betrayal to the Secret Society? Or is this just coincidence? I’m also intrigued that Chronos is being tasked with finding out where Booster Gold has disappeared to. I love me some Booster, so the fact that he seems to have some level of importance to Johns’ big DC plans is very exciting. Brett Booth’s artwork was OK, and the Martian Manhunter back-up was OK too. That’s really all you can say about this title, it’s OK.

I freely admit that I never thought Catwoman was dead but I'm ashamed to say that I didn't guess it was Manhunter ahead of time. :smt102

I really like this series so far, specially watching MM kick so much ass!

I like Agent Fed, but his name is ridiculous.

It's like a Police Officer being called John Cop or something.
