Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Once DC ushered in the New 52, a reboot of 52 of their major characters, Johns was given the reins of DC’s signature team, the Justice League. But once the Superman-led team became wholly preoccupied by a battle with the Atlanteans, a U.S. government body—Advanced Research Group Uniting Superhumans, or ARGUS—decided to create its own team, and the Justice League of America (JLA) was born. Johns’ JLA comprises some lesser-known superheroes (Hawkman, Martian Manhunter, and Cat Woman, among others), but their battles are no less epic, thanks to Finch’s bold outlines and action pieces, though he doesn’t shirk more character-driven moments either. The beginning of the volume traces the creation of the new team and their dynamics as a group, but because Johns is at the helm for both Justice League of America and the Justice League, there is a lot of interaction with the Justice League, including several crossover events, such as the “Trinity War” and “Forever Evil.” Johns is a big name in the DC universe, and that alone will be a draw. --Ben Spanner

I also like having Martian Manhunter back in the comics.

And, yes, I can admit that I probably thought about this too much.
Richard Jones
This introductory volume almost feels like two distinct stories.

I liked the idea of a team being assembled to combat the main Justice League should they ever go rogue, but what if they never do? What will the "JL Killer" team do? Fortunately, Geoff Johns acknowledges this and decides to send the newly formed Justice League of America after a Secret Society of Villians who are working beyond the scope of the JL.
Brillant set-up, with the original team roster not including Catwoman or Green Arrow, so reading how both of them join is an interesting story, but the member of this team who surprised me by actually being part of this team was J'onn J'onnz (Martian Manhunter) because I thought he was part of The New 52's Stormwatch. Never the less, it really captured the team's dynamic, although inexperienced at working together as they are, with Vibe being the rookie, Hawkman, Green Lantern Simon Baz and Stargirl the powerhouses, Katana and Catwoman as the infiltration specialists, Green Arrow leading, and Martian Manhunter can be anything he wants because he is just that flexible. It was good, right up to the Trinity War chapters, which require reading either the trade paperback Trinity War collection or each monthly release of all involved titles.
Good start to an interesting team idea, but requires further reading.

Catwoman in a Justice League? Yup, pretty much my reason for reading it, other than it's connection to Justice Leauge (Batman's). I also like having Martian Manhunter back in the comics. This series is heading in an interesting direction.

Pounding heart. Palpitations. Justice League, what is happening? Where is Booster? How many Justice Leagues will there be? Will even one be left standing? My mind is racing after reading this volume and I. Can't. Wait. For. Trinity War. I pre-ordered it ages ago!! There are so many superheroes involved in this book that it is just too many to even remember who is supposed to be part of the new JLA. The first line-up gets changed once and at the end we don't know where they stand. Just like all the other JLs at this point! Shazam is even here. He was on the reserve list from Justice League, Vol. 3 and he's still hanging around and wants to go home but is told he'd better stay around until things get sorted out. The scenes with various JL's going up against each other are truly epic! And now we have a Secret Society of super villains. Catwoman which team is she on? Amanda Waller where does her loyalty lie? The answers will psyche you out!! OK, now just some rambling. Lots of new people here for me. I love Vibe!! What can I say ... I thought he'd be lame but I love him. We get to know a lot about Green Arrow actually, even though this volume is not much about the characters as it's so intense on the action. I haven't liked his appearances so far in the JL books but I'm willing to look into him now and may try out his series. Martian Manhunter is given quite a bit of character development too and I think that's because he's being seen as the "leader" of JLA. I loved the slightly different twist on his background story than pre-52 and I've always liked him as a character. None of the other new superheroes was given enough exposure to get to know them yet so am reserving judgement. Yet I can say I love, love, love the Leaguers and their universe!!

The idea for this new JLA is great. A Justice League controlled by the U.S. government, hence the name Justice League or America. The part that went bad was having the JLA work with the Justice League. You can't really go anywhere from there.

So the government's getting all concerned because Wonder Woman has been making out with Superman. Apparently they might spawn a bunch of little Super Wonder Brats, and what trouble they would be! The story is premised on the notion that the old Justice League is perceived as untrustworthy -- even Superman (yeah, right) -- so a new Justice League, assembled from junior varsity superheroes, is the answer. In other words, A.R.G.U.S. can't control the Justice League so it's going to make a replacement Justice League -- a Substitute Justice League, if you will. Okay, fine, that's sounds just stupid enough to be a true government idea. Fortunately, the world is overflowing with second-tier superheroes, starting with Hawkman, who is looking more formidable than he did in his original incarnation. He's also gone insane, making him perfect for government work. Katana is an assassin, just the kind of trustworthy hero the new Justice League needs. Martian Manhunter is cool but not really a team player. Vibe I can understand but Stargirl? Catwoman? Well, they have to hide Catwoman given that she's a criminal, which also sounds like a brilliant government idea. And the list goes on. I was waiting for the government agents to recruit The Hawk and the Dove, but maybe next issue.

The idea is for these second stringers to take on the original (and now untrustworthy) Justice League, should the need arise. Yeah, okay, maybe Hawkman can give Aquaman a good fight as long as they keep him away from water, but Superman? C'mon. Time for a new plan. One of the abundant supply of Green Lanterns (the newest one) is really the only chance the new JLA has in a fight against anyone stronger than the cast of Cats. They can barely handle Shaggy Man, and as supervillains go, he's definitely B-list.
