The book is chock full of Silver Age silliness and there's no Silver Age silliness like DC Silver Age silliness. The book isn't quite as fun as many of the heroes' own books because of the lack of differentiation of personalities. There are silly ideas like an evil tornado being who decides to turn good and then creates duplicates of the Justice League to fight his evil side to prove whether good is really better than bad.
However, there are some good stories in here. At this point, the Justice League has developed a solid line up and would add Hawkman to the mix in here. Heroes would rotate whether they'd be in the book or not which gives heroes more time to showcase their unique powers and abilities. Kanjar-Ro and Doctor Destiny are two of the villains that make return appearances, already beginning the Justice's League rogue's gallery shape.
At the same time, the book also features the first two big team ups with the Justice Society of America on Earth 2 and we're introduced to Earth 3 where the only superbeings are villains who take on the Justice League for "reasons," in a somewhat contrived story that's still fun. Another favorite in here is, "The Mystery of Spaceman X," which is surprisingly good.
Overall, despite a few stupid moments, this is a very fun book and it lays out some core ideas that would define the DC Universe to this day.
