About the Author
Dennis O'Neil began his career as a comic book writer in 1965 at Charlton, where then-editor Dick Giordano assigned him to several features. When Giordano moved to DC, O'Neil soon followed. At DC, O'Neil scripted several series for Giordano and Julius Schwartz, quickly becoming one of the most respected writers in comics. O'Neil earned a reputation for being able to "revamp" such characters as Superman, Green Lantern, Captain Marvel, and Batman, whom O'Neil brought back to his roots as a dark, mysterious, gothic avenger. Besides being the most important Batman writer of the 1970s, O'Neil served as an editor at both Marvel and DC. After a long tenure as Group Editor of the Batman line of titles, he retired to write full-time.

very colorful pages of all of them like batman, superman, wonder woman, flash, green lantern, hold on let me play "lucy in the sky with diamonds" while I get distracted reading these pages, there was a lot of plot back then.

In an earlier tale (JLA # 100) The serious Doctor Fate doesn't like the Elongated Man's silly jokes. In the same issue, Wonder Woman has to literally have her arm twisted by Batman (Dick Dillin drew it just that way) to come to the 100 th meeting of the JLA.
In other tales, the Phantom Stranger is mysterious; Red Tornado, poignant; Elongated Man, earnest and fun.
Len Wein was a quiet genius in his own way.
Thankfully, the late great Len Wein arrives as of issue #100 to completely salvage this omnibus. He brings back classic JLA villains such as Amazo, Felix Faust and the Shaggy Man, drops the social commentary, and writes one of the most well-regarded JLA/JSA meetings, the Seven Soldiers of Victory epic. Dillin's artwork seems reenergized by the new direction and the welcome arrival of Dick Giordano on inks.
The Wein issues more than justify the $65 I paid. I will, however, be tearing this omnibus apart and having it rebound to exorcise the Friedrich issues. Looking forward to the next volume, which begins the Englehart run.
In this volume Wonder Woman of Earth1 has abandoned her super-powers (and she's not part of the team), Red Tornado joins the team, the JLA teams up with JSA and the Freedom Fighters, and some special-guest stars show up, among them, the Vigilante, Sandman, and Spectre. The Black Canary is strengthening her powers and Red Tornado joins the team, while Snapper Carr is discarded in the first issue. Although I never liked the idea of Snapper Carr, who becomes a mascot of the JLA during the 60s, I disliked more the way DC got rid of him. The early part of the JLA during this period is highly socially conscious, which characterizes a lot of DC comics during this era, so many of its tales have to do with pollution. Under Lein Wein, the JLA departs slightly from this social awareness focusing more on inner conflicts of the superheroes and other external foes. This is a volume I really enjoy.
