It’s the ending for this title, but strangely, it feels like a new beginning. The team heads to Russia in order to pay tribute to Rocket Red, and then they get attacked by Lightweaver’s brother, stop him, and decide not to break up, but to carry on fighting evil away from the UN. It really feels like Jurgens was expecting the book to carry on with this cast, but we won’t get to see that. This was a strange book really when you think about it, Jurgens spent 6 issues setting up a team and a status quo, then blew it up in #7, and then spent the rest building a new team and then it ends. Weird. Hopefully we’ll continue to see this team show up elsewhere (we’ve already seen them in Batwing and Stormwatch this week) and maybe they’ll get another shot eventually, there’s still the annual after all. And to top it all off, Jurgens never did what I expected by revealing Booster not to be an idiot and showing him working with Rip Hunter! What gives? Batman did mention his first meeting with Booster, maybe we’ll get to see that story, although I can’t imagine Scott Snyder using Booster in his book. Oh well, farewell JLI, we hardly knew ye, mainly because you all got killed in a suicide bomb.

Dear DC: Unless you're actually serious about wanting it to succeed, don't bring this title back. It's hard to imagine a more half-assed effort than this one, especially when a no-brainer would have been to continue in the vein of Generation Lost and it's creative team(s).

There's still the annual for that to happen right?
