Even more confusing.
King Impulse wrote:I don't know the full reasons as to why, but that is what Ray Palmer always did. His suit always disappeared when he grew to full-size. (Well, he could have it on at full-size, but it seems there's an option to change back)
I don't complain about the Flash rings, so I'm not going to complain about this.
thefourthman wrote:Like I said, there may be a reason, but you got the one guy (Ryan) who is pretty much always in the suit (as I recall wasn't he naked the first time he put on the belt or something to that effect, I remember him running around all naked) at both sizes and then Ray not only grows bigger without the suit but appears to be shrinking to not wearing the suit at the end...
It needs an explanation. That's all. Even Flash has explained that ring crap to whatever way the writer feels.

although I do agree that the atom scene is horribly written (Zechs can be right about one thing)

Correction.. "Zechs was right". Seriously the Outhouse should make a t-shirt like those Marvel, "Magneto was right." Afterall:
I am very unfamiliar with these characters so this comic had a disadvantage from page one. It did start off quite well but once the Green Lantern and Green Arrow bail it all gets fuzzy with me. There were a bunch of moments that were probably meant to be powerful but were lost upon me. The overuse of the word JUSTICE! was just silly... this was definitely for DC readers as it should be, I had a hard time caring about any of these characters It would have been much more interesting if it had the big 3 as the spotlight characters, that is who I think of when I think of the Justice League. I did however like the art, very beautiful to look at. One of the things I like about the group is reading books that are foreign to me and I base a lot on how easy a book is to read and enjoy with little or no prior knowledge... that is where this book fails, I have said it once and will say it again... I should not have to wiki a book to enjoy it.
STORY - 3
ART - 9
OVERALL - 4

Maybe my limited experience is where I just don't get Hal, but he's never seemed to me that he's the kick ass take no prisoners guy he was set up to be in the first 4-6 pages. In fact it felt forced lets start a comic with this guy and he's being pushy and he doesn't care what people are saying what Batman is dead? ok let's make him Hal Jordan. Really I feel like Robinson put the wrong second word on his script really it should have been Arrow not Lantern giving this diatribe instead. On a side note if I say something before the character says it, it's really not that great a writing job. It would have been nice for Ollie not to say "Oh boy" and be almost his entire dialogue but because this is something he actually agrees with and Hal is lets face it a buffoon goes with him. Thus ends the appearence of the more "interesting" characters of the book.
I turn the page and I see an Atom, I think it's probably ray Palmer. I was glad to see Ryan who I liked during Remenders couple of issues but the first couple panels of Ryan and Ray were a bit confusing. Now we get to the moment all us Starman nerds are waiting for, Mikal Thomas. It was lame. Thanks for nothing James. and then we see the same set up over and over again. No villians no team-ups, no plot. There is a little set up but right now our heroes are interested in one thing completely seperate from each other, JUSTICE and you just know they'll find each other at the end of next issue so they can take down this justice fellow.
Ah the art, I didn't know comics were being colored with crayons these days.
I especially like and admire Zechs. He's everything I wish I could be!

Cause clearly me, guitar, and 48 are not blinded by Robinson being on Starman to see what this book truly was. The rest of you are utter FOOLS for thinking this book was awesome. McDuffie wrote a better speech in JLA showcasing Hal and Ollie as they truly where being assholes.

Seriously 3 of the reviews are low scored and didin't enjoy the issue, doesn't make it fact that it sucked.
Sorry that no one likes your batgirl enough to use her.
