Justice League #9 (Get really upset Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Mon May 21, 2012 8:43 am

A pretty average issue of Justice League, the only thing in the main story that really interests me is the new villain and his taking down Steve Trevor. It’s pretty brave of Johns really to use a new villain, I’m sure most JL fans would have expected him to just bring back slightly altered versions of all the classics like Amazo and Despero and Kanjar Ro, but no, he’s doing something new, which for a writer who too often looks back to the past, is admirable. Graves seems like an interesting character so far, and I’m looking forward to seeing what he looks like properly. The little vignettes with each League member were only OK, I liked the Flash trying and failing to be bad cop a lot, Barry Allen has probably been the best part of this run. Where was Aquaman though? Why doesn’t he get a flashback? Jim Lee’s art was as you’d expect, on the action splash pages it’s breathtaking, especially the shot of Superman and Batman in Arkham. The quieter scenes are a bit more problematic though, he’s not suited to the small stuff is he? The Shazam! back-up continues to be better than most people on the internet claim, it’s clear that Billy Batson is actually still a good person deep down, now, and I like that it’s taking it’s time, when Billy finally becomes Captain Marvel, it’s going to be awesome.

I dunno, it smells like he's going through Waid's laundry with the Tower of Babel/JLA Year One confidential info is used to betray the team scenario. Hell, even Snapper Carr showed the Joker where the Cave was. I'd much rather read Aquaman and his other league chase down Black Manta than this league and Graves. Sullen, mopey Clark Kent disgusts me to no end and all the Bromance Banter is tedious and boring.

I can't believe I pay $3.99 for an eight page back-up feature. But I do cause it's worth it. As you said, the internet couldn't be more wrong! Billy Batson is the greatest! Johns has gone to all the best wells, Fawcett's feisty Billy-Boy, Ordway's indelible link to Black Adam, the Serial's mystic temple setting, and combined it with a new approach with the Family unit.

Billy doesn't mope around waiting around to be picked last for sports. He's too busy beating up bullies. Shazam gets to be cooler than Superman, as it should be. I can't wait till those two rematch in the future, Billy won't have to lose anymore.

Why DC feels the need to make Clark Kent an utter worthless pu$$y I'll never know.

The last two versions of Clark have been bigger pu$$ies than anything S&S could have come up with.

The fact that anyone would call this "average", truly indicates just how abominable this title has become.

If it wasn't DC's golden boy writing the title it would already be up on the chopping block.

A's usual the backup is to terrible to even comment on.

I remember the last time Clark whimped off after being c*ckblocked by the guy Lois was banging. That's close enough.

No it's not.

I really don't think you understand Superman at all.

I thought this one issue was better than the first 8 combined :lol:
Take that as you will.

Well he's been married to her for the better part of a decade so it's not like anyone would have been cockblocking him recently.

Pandering to the worthless pu$$y demographic I imagine. I'd blame SV fans, but even Welling didn't seem this pathetic.

Just before COIE, Clark was dating Lana and punching out Steve Lombard. So if you want to go back to in continuity fainting spell you'd have to go back to the late 70's.

I understand the last time Superman was actually relevant, which was the Man of Steel Era. When Clark Kent actually was a well-adjusted person socially.

Exactly. Even Welling's Clark was more of a man than pu$$y Clark.
